Hi all,

Apologies if this is off topic, but what is the opinion of the list members
as to the most accessible virtualisation software to use with a screen

I've read that Virtualbox is much more responsive and efficient, but it uses
the QT framework and thus its UI is not screen reader friendly.

On the flip side VMWare is a bit of a resource hogger  but is much more

Would this be the opinion of  people in general?

Note I would be using the virtualisation software  both with Jaws on Windows
and Orca on linux.
