NVDA Free Screen Reader

SUCH A Site

 

 

NVDA is a screen reading program for non-visual desktop access to information on Windows computers. It is a viable option as a means to access Windows and many of the programs it supports. It is a totally free program which is a good option for the home user. I personally cannot speak to its ability to integrate into a larger networked system one might see in a place of work, but for single station access is worth examining. Below are links to download the program NVDA and to have the User's manual at your finger tips even before you download the program. There are a series of instructional videos by the American Foundation for The Blind listed below for you to view on the You Tube app or website. You don't have to make that choice, whatever system you are on when you click or enter on the link will take you to their site or to the You Tube app. If the built in voices of NVDA are not to your liking, there is an option to purchase Vocalizer by Nuance Technologies but Given how prices change, I cannot state a definitive price on my website.
