Running NVDA on a Mac, virtualized (was Re: [nvda] Waltr2)

Jason White

While we’re in the digression, I’ve intended to ask this question for a while:

How well does NVDA run in a virtual machine on a Mac? In particular, if you have a braille display, is it possible to switch it smoothly between the Mac OS host and the Windows guest running NVDA?


I have a Mac (in fact, I’m writing this message with it), but it probably doesn’t have enough memory to run Windows virtualized. If I upgrade it at some point, though, one of my options would be to use Mac OS for most work and to run a virtualized Windows guest just when necessary. I’m well aware that VMWare, Parallels, and VirtualBox are all available for the Mac, and that Bootcamp allows you to set up a dual-boot arrangement also. There are options.

This really isn’t related to nvda

Indeed.  And you have only yours truly to blame for having triggered this digression, for which I apologize.  I should have taken it to the Chat Subgroup.
