Re: Jaws vs NVDA

Laura,

 

Probably the best advice is to go to their web page, read up on it, download and try it. It is free. I believe there is also a NVDA list but as I’m not using the screen reader or on their mailing list don’t know the particulars. As with anything, each person has their own opinions and this list could debate the pros/cons of this for days. At the end of the day, it will be your personal opinion on its merits or drawbacks that will be your outcome.

Does it work well with other scanning and reading programs such as open book?

NVDA in my mind is better than Jaws.

Hello,

 

I’d never heard of NVDA screen reader until just recently …… I have only heard of and used Jaws.  I am curious and have quite a few questions but I’ll narrow it down to this one for now …… Is there much difference in the capabilities of what each screen reader can do regarding work and home use?  Thanks in advance for your input.
