Greetings David.

Despite its prohibitive cost, JAWS definitely dominates the screen reader market due to governmental endorsement through purchase orders for educational institutions and other services.


Regarding making your site accessible: generally, if it's accessible to NVDA, it will more than likely be accessible to the bigger screen readers (JAWS, Window-Eyes, System Access, etc). Feel free to test your site with NVDA. At worst, you'll get some strange JAWS behaviour, which can be rectified upon user input.

Subject: Re: [Audyssey] Windows screen reader software?


Thanks for the advice, everyone! NVDA and System Access are workable, but clumsy. JAWS is much nicer, it approaches VoiceOver in usability, but it's incredibly expensive (you could buy a new computer for less). Of course, I can use it in the free demo mode for my purposes, but do people really spend so much on JAWS?

I guess the most important question is, what software do people actually use? I see after a quick inspection that all of these options read my webpages slightly differently. I don't want to waste time making it work well with a program that no one uses.

Thanks,
David
