Re: Looking for a certified NVDA trainer in Canada

Hello Quentin and all,
Yes, I have contacted the software developer about its inaccessibility. The sense I get is that since it is, at least to them, compatible with JAWS, that is sufficient. In fact, the software is only partially accessible with JAWS.
Fortunately, I was able to obtain an annual license for JAWS. The amount of income I will get from this job will never be enough to live on. As for whether or not JAWS is using scripts, I have no idea. I am only learning as much of it as I need to in order to do the work. It seems to be a huge and extremely complicated piece of software, 95% of which I will never use. If it weren’t for the license there is no way I could ever afford it.
Quinten, thank you for those links. I am not familiar with object navigation, etc. However, I would still like to find someone to take a look at this program to see whether or not it could be used with NVDA before diving into that information.
Thanks for all of your input. Any more comments or recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Have you talked to the company (or developers) about the accessibility of the package? As others have asked, do you know if it uses Jaws scripts to enable it to work with Jaws?
If regular navigation isn't getting you around the software, are you familiar with the review cursor and object navigation? They are NVDA concepts for moving around text and objects which is otherwise inaccessible with normal navigation. You can find them in the User Guide: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#NavigatingWithNVDA but if you are not already familiar with them, I'd strongly recommend the Basic Training for NVDA which goes into much more depth on them and has exercises and activities to practice your skills: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/basic-training-for-nvda-ebook/
