I can never get NVDA to read the stuff I need to hear.
I do something like move to focus with the minus key and insert 7 for review mode, but I get more information with routing Jaws to PC and at that point, the Jaws cursor is active and I can read what needs to be read.
On rare occasions I need to use the virtual cursor to read an application.
NVDA, if it can read as much as Jaws, then the layout is so weird, that a normal person would never find it intuitive.

Subject: Dialog of heading list: JAWS versus NVDA

When we bring up a dialog with the list headings with JAWS, via JAWS + F6, the headings are presented in a linear list view. It's possible to use radio buttons to filter just to a particular heading level, but that is a little awkward with more key strokes. But NVDA does it differently. The dialog box contains a tree view of the headings, which means the heading structure can be folded and expanded easily.  The NVDA way seems more user-friendly in my opinion. But maybe there's a reason for the way JAWS does it that I don't know.  I'm curious what others think about the experience?
