Curious Regarding Impressions of the Dolphin Supernova Screen Reader

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

I'm aware that Dolphin's Supernova screen reader has been around, probably for as long as JAWS. I occasionally hear about product upgrades and I have sometimes perused their list of newly added features but I have so far never met anybody who has either used it or who has admitted trying the demo. I'm just wondering how it compares to JAWS: what it does well or even better and what features it may be lacking. I'm not interested in switching screen readers but was just curious.

Dear David & List:

I first heard of Dolphin when they were selling their original MS-DOS screen reader, HAL. HAL was merged into their current product, Super Nova, believe you still configure Super Nova with MAP files as HAL was configure.

 

Have not heard much of them lately, as Dolphin Systems is in the UK, their Screen Reader has little if any presence in North America. Not sure about the rest of the world, after all, Queen Victoria had an Empire upon which the Sun never set!
