I'm happy to explore the idea of hints or more help for new users if those with ideas on that want to contact me.
The open source being insecure argument is being disproved even more with every passing week. Did you know 20% of code created for US government organisations now has to be open source? Or that if you use a Windows computer, it includes open source code? I've recently updated our Corporate and Government page to include more info on that: https://www.nvaccess.org/corporate-government/#OpenSource
Re the idea that NVDA is inferior because of the price, perhaps expressing it differently would help? EG it is not that NVDA costs less to make than other programs, or is made with less care and attention. Rather, that in creating a product which actually meets the needs of its audience, we have looked at not only the technical requirements of the software itself, but also the fact that the majority of blind people around the world have less access to education, employment and income, therefore, what good is a solution which meets the technical need but is inaccessible due to the prohibitive financial burden unnecessarily placed on end users? NV Access have pursued a funding model which means we get the majority of our income from corporations like Microsoft, Mozilla, Google, etc, rather than the end user. Therefore, NVDA is the most ethical screen reader available.
