It's really not that weird.  To this day, because JAWS was "first to market" (or at least "first to successfully market") it predominates the screen reader market, particularly in business settings.

When companies are choosing to do custom work for one screen reader, that screen reader will almost invariably be JAWS.  

It's an accident of history that's still supported by user base size in professional and educational environments.

None of the above should be taken as any comment on the quality of competitors of JAWS.  It's simply a fact of both history and the present situation as far as market share.
