Two technology questions from a high school student

Hello! I am a blind high school student and use assistive technology every day. I had two questions. I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight into the accessibility of Dropbox? This is a program I have heard much about and would like to try using. I am a JAWS user but am interested in exploring the accessibility of Apple products. I was wondering what your thoughts were on the accessibility of a Mac laptop with VoiceOver as opposed to a PC laptop with JAWS? Thank you!

There is also one programm which you can download and try to use it.
You can use Gmail or even Wikipedia really comfortably.

Dropbox is very much accessible with screen readers like JAWS, System Access and NVDA. I'm also a screen reader user and are using drop box from few years now.

VoiceOver is built into the Mac system and works great for the system, although third party software may not be as well integrated. That being said, PCs with JAWS is still the industry standard, so when you are working, there is a much greater chance you will get a computer with JAWS than VoiceOver (although that depends on what your job is and where you work).
