Definitely N V D A. Just study the key commands, of which some are same as JAWS and some not; very easy.

Subject: Recommendation: Open source screen reader program
Hello list members:
Since retiring I have been involved in a number of volunteer activities. Recently I had a conversation with a local agency who is looking for a volunteer to assist clients in completing an online registration form as part of an interview process regarding potential receipt of specific services.
I understand that I cannot legally use one of my additional Jaws licenses because I have the Home version. Truth to tell, other than JAWS, I have never really worked with any other screen reader programs. Some years ago, Idid a cursory review of NVDA. I understand that Narrator has improved in some measurable ways. I know that there are other programs out there.
For purposes of this opportunity, where I would need to load a screen reading program onto a laptop in order to conduct the interviews, I am looking for any recommendations of open-source screen Reader programs.
Any assistance is appreciated.
