As I said, the screen reader [VoiceOver], is also inferior to JAWSAll I can say, Steve, is that you are among the JAWS fanboys. I am not.
After more than a decade of dealing with JAWS I know it has its pluses and minuses and works better in some settings and not so well in others.
I tell all my students that I tutor in JAWS that they would be well advised to learn another screen reader, at least for basic tasks, in addition to JAWS [and, I hasten to add, were I tutoring NVDA or Narrator would say the same]. I haven't seen a single one of them not get stuck somewhere that, for whatever reason, an alternative doesn't.
For me, while JAWS is the granddaddy of them all, it is not and never has been the ne plus ultra of screen readers. At least not for a number of years now.

Explanations exist; they have existed for all time; there is always a well-known solution to every human problem — neat, plausible, and wrong.
