Re: NVDA in Employment

The other problem is that NVDA isn’t promoted enough. It has been around for about 10 years, but JAWS has been around since the 80s. Who can compete with something that stable?

I hope this isn't too off-topic. I recently heard an argument that NVDA is bad for blind prospect's in employment because it is the "dumbed down" solution. The person arguing this elaborated, saying that NVDA is not customizable/flexible enough (too chatty"), that it was not able to be scripted as easily, it didn't work well with as much proprietary software, and that it wouldn't be allowed on secure environments due to being open source.
So my question is this: how many people here use NVDA for work, and is there a notable dilerence in level of usability with JAWS?
Also, does NVDA have a skim reading feature like JAWS?
