Well, orca is good for what it can do.
It has the best braille support as long as i can tell.
Even better than jaws or nvda.
Voiceover is a pritty good screenreader if you're willing to tolerate a few things  that does not work.
For example the braille support in voiceover is not as half as good as any windows screenreader which is pritty frustrating.

> Orca not as good as Jaws? What? While it's true that the last time I used Jaws was probably 10 years ago, it was getting progressively worse and slower, and crashing the whole computer more often at the time I stopped using it than it was when I started using it. Yes, Oracle's failing to maintain Orca caused a few setbacks, but Joany and others have been working extremely hard to make it much more usable than it ever was, and in fact, Orca now works much better than what I have heard reported about VoiceOver. Additionally, even if we count out Linux entirely for a moment and only focus on Windows, NVDA is better than Jaws, so we can certainly count out Jaws as even being a contender in the battle for screen reader supremecy for a very long time to come.
> Yes, Orca does some things differently, e.g. it doesn't have a forms mode or virtual buffer in the browser, but that alone makes it better than all Windows screen readers. The only thing it has trouble with at this point is Flash, but everything has varying degrees of trouble with Flash, and I have never thought of it as a workable solution for embedding media on any website.
