Re: Article on Screen Reader History (including NVDA)
It’s possible that Window-eyes wasn’t mentioned in the article for two reasons.
First, the article’s focus was on blind programmers who were solving the accessibility barriers from Windows.I’m not sure if the WE developers were blind. Also, Window-Eyes isn’t available anymore and so cannot be considered as a modern solution.

the article is interesting and it has good information about JAWS and NVDA. But it has problems. It should have said something about Window-eyes because a lot of people used it and it was a good screen-reader.
It helped in development of screen-reader innovations in ways that should have been noted.
