Hi Quentin,

Bible Seeker is very accessible with JAWS and NVDA.
If you download all the add ons (Bible versions) I believe there are 9 in total.

I'm not familiar with the Biblesoft PC Study Bible.  Last time someone asked me about accessible Bible software though, I did collate this list from other conversations on the topic.  If anyone finds any of these useful (or any which are no longer accessible) or any others not listed here, do please let me know:

YouVersion bible:  
Bible Gateway:
Bible Seeker: (apparently the search isn't very accessible though)
e-Sword: (possibly not completely accessible?)

Kind regards

The Program that NVDA does not read well is called PC Study Bible, made by Biblesoft.

It been around sine the late 1980's, and is still around today. 

NVDA reads a lot of things, but for some reason, does not read the window where the Text from the Bible and all other Reference Books are displayed. 

NVDA reads most other areas in the program better than Jaws, but these main display windows within this program, for what ever reason, are not read. 

It's been a while, but I think these windows can be read by using the Mouse, which doesn't help when trying to do any sort of research.

JAWS still reads one program I use all the time better than NVDA.

But to Write emails and do other things, I find NVDA works quite well.

I use Excel, and NVDA works better for me than JAWS.

Especially if you are creating Spread Sheets and writing Formulas.

NVDA has been on my System for a number of years now, mostly used in
case Window Eyes, or then Jaws might fail.  In the last year, I started
having issues with JAWS, and their Tech people couldn't figure out the
problem, so NVDA has become my Go To Screen Reader program for the daily
