I agree--I tried NVDA and found it a lot more functional than I expected, 
and its view of the UI and navigation commands are easier to use IMO, and a 
lot more logical.  The only thing that tripped me up last time I used it was 
the fact that it uses espeak instead of eloquence, which I'm used to, and 
the espeak voice was not as clear to my ear.  Also, when I tried to do a say 
character twice rapidly, which in jaws speaks the phonetic word starting 
with that letter, NVDA just spoke the ascii value.  I complained about this 
on the NVDA list as I think being able to hear the output is important 
without memorizing the ascii equivalent of everything.  But all in all I 
think I prefer NVDA for many operations over jaws.  It's not there yet, but 
for free software it seems to be a nice little package.

NVDA actually has quite a few of the same keystrokes/shortcuts as jaws, but
it also has a few that I sometimes wish jaws has, like the ones that let you
a bit more easily navigate parent/child controls, etc.

My main use of NVDA is either as backup, or for different languages, but I
also keep the portable version on my flash drives since it means I can quite
easily work on other people's machines without any software installation.

In other words, while I need/use jaws for lots of work tasks etc., NVDA is
definitely my second best choice, and it's getting better all the time - and
it's _free_.

Stay well
