Re: In-Process is out


Thanks Quentin for the In Process posts. I really enjoy reading them :) I'm actually pretty new to the list (have read through some archives though lol) and I hope it's okay to share a little testimony too since someone else also did, but in short, you guys are awesome and I'm really grateful for NVDA's existence. I use it on a daily basis and it has been my primary screen reader for the past 2 or 3 years. I had been exposed a bit to NVDA long before I started using it but I was strongly encouraged to try it by a vision teacher 2 or 3 years ago to expand my options and get exposure to alternate solutions, and I fell in love with NVDA very quickly because it felt very comfortable, responsive, and most importantly, it ticked all the boxes for a good screen reader for me. In addition, the command structure is quite similar to the (popular commercial) screen reader I was using before, which enabled me to get around the computer and feel comfortable with NVDA right from day one. Originally I was only planning to test NVDA for a short period of time, but I ended up loving it enough to not want to switch back to my other screen reader much anymore even though I had full access to it for quite a while. Now it's very hard for me to justify spending tons of money on a commercial solution when there's a free solution that serves me just as well.

Anyway, thanks for all the great work guys and I look forward to growing with you guys for years to come. :) I am still young so my contributional capacity is limited, but I definitely plan on donating in the near future and contributing to this list more, and maybe someday I may become more heavily involved in the accessibility field and NVDA would be a big part of that.
