Yup, as a user experience NVDA feels a little clunky at times, but I'd
still recommend testing with that on Windows. My thinking is that NVDA
currently has the least amount of quirks in terms of how it interprets
HTML, so although it's a bit raw, a page that is easy for you to use
with both NVDA and VoiceOver shouldn't throw up any surprises no
matter what people are using.
For the record, your "JAWS is much nicer, it approaches VoiceOver in
usability" comment gave me a good laugh. Talk like that would get you
the cyber equivalent of a standing ovation from some groups of blind
folks, and thrown to the lions by others. Fortunately, this list is
Good luck, and if there's anything specific you get stuck on
accessibility-wise just shout.
