As I’ve said before, I just love NVDA.
And it has all the features I need being an average
computer user. I do think that NVDA. Should add more of
the truly great voices that are out there. I love the 1
core voices and I also love Nuance. I think that Cortana
voice is one of the best. I’d like to see her added to
NVDA. Without charge. I think the original voices that
NVDA. Had are now pasee and should be droped because their
quality isn’t good anymore. What do you guys think?

Hmph, if you are happy to pay a load of cash for each
version update from freedomscientiffic or visparo etc
thats your issue, have issues with licences, need scripts
for just about everything like win98 needs drivers, are
happy with the possible bad technical support issues going
about and are happy that if it screws up you need to
repair, reinstall or reformat if it totally goes nuts, not
to mention that visparo like suing everyone under the sun
well more than I'd like, go ahead.
When I used their stuff it was ok, but yeah, I never
really had that many problems with it.
Never got into the payed script racket, either.
I had to repair it once or twice, but that was before it
became a beast.
Compaired to nvda well who knows.
The information bandied round the list pluss a few other
user experiences not my own pluss the fact that due to
jaws and issues causing me to have to reformat to make
them completely quit, but mostly information on here pluss
what I hear from time to time, especially with how they
got all the competing companies bar dolphin and that
probably because they only just moved out of using
internet explorer puts the impression on me that like
microsoft used to be and may still be that this is a
monopoly I would really like to see the back of.
I certainly am happy I no longer use their software, and
unless I got a job which is what jaws is bandied about by
various governments and stuff, I wouldn't touch it unless
I had the cash.
To be hhonest this goes for dolphin stuff which is why I
got in the beta program but that was for a completely
selfish reason that being smuglers, its about all I care
about now days.
To be honest, I don't much care for a company who is
clearly running a business for the charity, government and
enterprise market with prices to high for average users to
buy, and needing expensive upgrades and modules for remote
access with specialised blindy bits and bobs.
Nvda and things like narator have opened me to the
mainstream, and with mainstream devices like the amazon
echo devices and smart phones about, when the new normal
comes along, I think some of these things will fall away
Dolphin seems to recognise this, so does avast.
So does nvaccess which is why I use them for most of my
Now there are a few things nvda does not do, but
everything has its limits.
But if you plan to use a wordprocesser, a desktop app, a
web brouser or email client or any office app or app using
standard controls or terminals then you don't need jaws
Now some of the mega custom apps and the like specialised
programs, will need specialised software, and yeah, jaws
is what you need and will always need.
Thats not nvda's job.
The job of nvda is to handle all the normal business and
home applications that use standard controls, and the like
as well as web interfaces.
To be honest that is what may happen, specialised
software will need specialised software, and will be
The only reason I'd get jaws is leasy thats about the
only reason I'd buy jaws now.
And to be honest if leasy would just sell its games
module then I'd just buy that.

Here’s hoping it would make the
Microsoft Flight simulator 2020 program more
Unlike it’s predecessor FSX, FS
2020 is not accessible for we who need to see with
Even though, all throughout the
newsletters and you tube tutorials, it does have
accessibility if your sighted.
This in short isn’t fair.
So, here’s hoping the newer
upgrade to NVDA is more accessible for we blind
flight simmer pilots.
Even though, in my opinion,
JAWS is a much better program.
