I like NVDA because it is affordable as well. It might have been my computer or something. It has been spastic lately.
You can change settings on both NVDA and JAWS to read or not read punctuation. I think it is annoying so i tell it not to.

Re:Angry at my Screen Reader



I have to the default stuff. I've turned automatic forms mode off though. I prefer the old way.

But... that's why rehabilitation for the blind, and using the ida clause to tell your district what you need is so very important.


Re:Angry at my Screen Reader



Well, beb there, done that. I have been frustrated with screen readers. I mean, I have no issue with JFW, Window Eyes, oir both of those. I don't have an issue with System access To go. I have o experience with any of those other screen readers.


Re:Angry at my Screen Reader



OK, jaws users. Can jaws read this? Note!! You will need to have unicode enabled or whatever your browser needs.

NVDA reads them perfectly, especially with the Greek voice of e-speak.
Yes folks, they were a few Greek letters, like Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon and so forth.


Re: Angry at my Screen Reader



I would be so irritated.
