Re: remote desktop program question with screen reader

This would be better answered on a JAWS or NVDA mailing list. Essentially, JAWS and NVDA have remote modes, in NVDA you need to add the NVDA Remote addon which might cost some money. In JAWS there is a remote feature that requires an license. In both cases, the screen reader is running on both sides of the connection, and the local copy runs the speech while the remote copy interprets the screen.
