I have a new student who is newly blind and has been using Microsoft’s “Narrator” which is the in-the-box screen reader for Windows. She is not an expert by any means and is willing to learn another screen reader if I recommend it. I have no current knowledge of Narrator so I don’t feel qualified to answer her.

She is a freshman, an athlete and not majoring in a STEM program.

Why do my wise colleagues think? Does she need to learn JAWS or NVDA? Or can she stick with Narrator for her college career. BTW, she depends on her Android smartphone for most things.
