on this thread has been helpful in terms of suggestions and the
things I would try myself. I am one of many NVDA certified experts
in Canada so will write you privately but mostly, this is the
stuff I would try myself.

you for this message. I will definitely check out that link.
Can you interact with these objects? This software is not
standard when it comes to controls which is part of the
reason it took me ages to learn it, LOL.
Hi Janet, I'm glad you've got something
working for now. Based on your description I think it's
unlikely JAWS scripts are being used. I am sure there's a
way somewhere to check if JAWS scripts have been installed
or not but I don't know where it is located in JAWS.
So as far as object navigation and NVDA
is concerned, it's essentially the equivalent of the JAWS
touch cursor or whatever Window eyes called it. The
equivalent of the JAWS cursor is screen review/review
cursor. I'm only familiar with laptop keyboard layout but
I know many others can explain the desktop layout
So object nav is essentially moving
between groups of object, so:
- to move to the next object, press
NVDA shift right arrow
- to move to the previous object,
press NVDA shift left arrow
- to move between groups of objects,
press NVDA+shift+up/down arrow.
NVDA is in object review move by
default. To cycle between review modes, press
control+page up/page down.
It's under the heading "using object
navigation in Windows 10 settings).
Object nav does take some getting
used to if you used a different screen reader in the
past, but once you grasp it, you can access a lot more
information. Hope this helps.

Quentin and all,
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.
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
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.
for all of your input. Any more comments or
recommendations are greatly appreciated.
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?

I am looking for someone in
Canada certified in NVDA training to work
with me to see whether there is any way to
use NVDA with the proprietary software used
by the company I contract for. The program
is supposedly only compatible with JAWS
which I am using now. I have tried NVDA with
no success. NVDA is so much faster and more
responsive. I would really like to be able
to use it if possible. This would involve
sharing my screen as the software is tied to
my computer. If this is something that you
may be able to help me with, please contact
me directly at jbrandly@....
I will compensate you for your time.
