Re: Meandering NVDA Miscellany (including that it's alive and well)

NVDA is equal and in some areas superior to JAWS. This program has helped many senior citizens I have worked with, who now have macular degeneration and thought their computer access was over. The NVDA community answering questions and brilliant developers are gifted in producing this software. A very big shout out and thanks to all who are responsible in keeping NVDA going!!!

Well Said. NVDA certainly doesn't seem to be dying. That's the beauty of a community led and open source project. You should see some of the complaints I've seen on groups recently about jaws 2019. that's a commercial product and people are downgrading to jaws 2018 because that worked better for them, despite all the supposed improvements. Many people I know are switching from jaws to NVDA because it works much better for them, both in a business and home environment. No screen reader is perfect. But accessibility has come a really long way and long may NVDA continue to thrive.
