I am just playing with Narrator in Windows 2004. To be honest, for pure
responsiveness, it blows JAWS and NVDA out the water. I was very surprised,
although I shouldn't be, as it is baked into the operating system.
If they keep this up, they could kill commercial screen readers quite
Also, because some of the commands are very similar to JAWS now, it's not a
great leap to try Narrator.
Give it a go, you just might be pleasantly surprised.
Even with Outlook now, it goes straight to reading the message
automatically, without much preamble, it's pretty darned good, and I could
get used to this.
All the best
