To the best of my knowledge, and I'm not really an expert in either, but
neither NVDA

Or System Access allows you to add to a dictionary the page break symbol.
NVDA might but I don't think SA does.  Since NVDA is free, try it and see.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] O_T screen reader delemna


Hi you all,


I am at a cross roads and need to make a decision.


I have currently Jaws version 9.0 Professional, as I have XP Professional on
my desk top and my netbook.  I use my netbook for internet access.


Anyway, this version of Jaws does not work well with Firefox, nor with IE 8
or above.


I contacted Freedom Scientific and found it will cost me about $600 to
upgrade to the current version of Jaws.


A lot of money right not, o.k. a lot of money at any time.


I have downloaded the demo of Window Eyes, I like their installment plan


Are there any of you who use WE, System Access or NVDA as your main and
exclusive screen reader, what do you like and don't like about them.


Regarding Bookshare how do these programs handle Bookshare and proofing
books and submitting items to the site.


Are there any things I need to be aware of before I consider which screen
reader I should consider going to, or whether upgrading Jaws might be my
best option, I am wavering, more towards find something new.


How does WE, and SA work with Excel spread sheets, web page design programs
like Dreamweaver and Facebook?


Help guys, smile.
