Lately NVDA quits on me all the time without a restart, no matter
what I do, how much I reinstall/reconfigure/don't install specific
add ons. So teamviewer is a nice addition when NVDA remote stops

honestly, NVDA never ever quit on me on the remote
If I had to restart the machine for whatever reason, NVDA
always restarted itself and NVDA REmote along with it.

That’s because JAWS Tandem,
like NVDA Remote, relies on the screenreader to be up
and stable to work. If JAWS or NVDA crashes, good
luck. That’s why I was kind of hoping for Teamviewer.
I don’t care which screenreader I end up using,
honestly. But the ability to restart it when it
inevitably falls over without needing to be in front
of the machine would be helpful.
I did use TeamViewer now
and then, with JAWS being installed on all
I remember that I had to
do quite a bit of key pass-throughs to control
some of the remote JAWS’ features.
Your best bet is to
install NVDA on both machines, have it start up
on the machine you want to control, and install
NVDA Remote on both.
Works very well, and it
will even come up when doing updates and
restarting the remote machine or when your
connection is bad now and then.
JAWS Tandem has the
disadvantage of not reconnecting or losing
connection when JAWS restarts for some reason or
