When I was using the windows insider program Narrator was greatly improved.

Hi.

Actually with narrator I got stuck on a webpage and couldn’t get out of it.

I agree.
I had to reinstall NVDA after reinstalling Windows. Trying to navigate
the website with Narrator was frustrating. I was so relieved once NVDA
was up and running.

Narrator while better than what it was, really still feels like an
afterthought. I mean, Microsoft has had ample opportunity to really
develop a screen reader. Be it when they partnered with Window Eyes
for like 5 minutes or only until recently paying more attention to Narrator itself.
Not to mention the fact that if they wanted to, they could've bought
Window Eyes outright or Vispero at any time for that matter.
Not really bashing MS even. More like I'll believe Narrator to be a
viable screen reading option when it actually becomes one. Right now,
outside of perhaps getting a machine up and running out of the box or
maybe to try to get out of the odd situation where your main screen
reader craps out on you, it's not much more than that.

Maybe someday narrator will be a great screen reader. I too hope NVDA
is around for many more years.

You know that everything has a life span. I hope NVDA still has a lot
of years ahead of itself but maybe just maybe Narrator will become a
great screen reader and there will be no need for NVDA or Jaws or any
other screen reader.
Right now NVDA is my screen reader of choice with Jaws being my backup
that I very seldom use.
