Wow how interesting. I do have a tutorial where someone was demonstrating how to use the amazon site with the Hal screen reader as well as Jaws and Window-eyes.

Just for info even though non-NVDA related…Dolphin were founded in the mid-80’s to further the development of the HAL screenreader primarily – the forerunner of Supernova. HAL was very popular in those early days when there were very few packages around but it started to lose influence once the likes of Vocal-Eyes and JAWS for DOS gained market share. When Supernova eventually came along, although it was very good at what it did with certain software, it did not have the flexibility of other packages.
For years now I thought Dolphin was a screen reader. Thanks for the correction.
Dolphin is not a screen reader, rather it is a company in the U.K. that markets several access technology software products. Their primary product is the SuperNova Access Suite, which includes a screen reader and screen magnification product.
Dolphin is pretty big in Europe, but not so widely used in the United States, though they have been around for a while.
