Notice Regarding NVDACon 2016,

The following is a note on two lists you can join related to the celebration in 2016 of the 10th anniversary of the free Windows screen-reader – NVDA.

Dear NVDA users, developers and supporters around the world:

My name is Joseph Lee, one of the users and contributors to the NonVisual Desktop Access screen reader project. I would like to invite all of you to help us plan a major milestone for the NVDA project: NVDA’s tenth anniversary in 2016.

For many blind people, computers have become an essential tool for participating in today’s information-rich society. This includes browsing the web to keep up to date with friends and family, using the Internet for academic activities, writing complex documents and software and so on.

Until a few years ago, it was necessary to set aside a significant amount of money to purchase screen access software for Microsoft Windows. However, that changed in 2006 when a blind Australian programmer, together with his friend set out to create a free, open-source screen reader for Windows:
NVDA, or NonVisual Desktop Access. Back then, many thought this project would quickly fade. Almost a decade later, this screen reader has won numerous awards and is now part of the lives of almost a hundred thousand blind people around the world. We, the NVDA community would like to take this momentum further by celebrating NVDA’s achievements and potential next year through various events.

If you would like to help NV Access celebrate NVDA’s tenth anniversary in 2016, or would like to help plan a major event in April 2016 called NVDACon 2016, please join the NvDACon 2016 Planning Task Force. The goal of this task force is to plan activities around NVDA’s tenth birthday, especially the upcoming NVDACon 2016.

There are two task force related mailing lists:

1 NVDACon discussion: This is the main Task Force mailing list where we’ll plan activities to celebrate NVDA’s tenth anniversary and NVDACon 2016. Please visit https://groups.io/g/nvdacon for more information or to join this Task Force.
Anyone, including NV Access staff are more than welcome to join.

2 NVDACon announce: This is an announcement list for those
interested in events surrounding NVDA’s tenth anniversary. Please visit https://groups.io/g/nvdacon-announce
for more information or to sign up to this list.

We look forward to getting input from the NVDA community in helping NV Access celebrate an important milestone for a project that is opening the doors for many blind people to education, employment and so on. If you know of anyone who may be interested in joining this effort, please do let them know.

Joseph S. Lee
NVDACon 2016 Planning Task Force Chair

    Materials Wanted for ESL teachers and students
    As materials in English for ESL teachers and students are hard to come by in my country, and nothing is available in grade one, us teachers need to look for other ways to help ourselves without braking the copyright law. If anyone has anything written or would want to write something or knows of someone who did or could do that, feel free to let me know. I will accept copies in grade 1 or large print, but if someone can only do it on the computer, you can e-mail me. I can then braille it with my Perkins brailler.

New Product – BuzzClip

The newly launched BuzzClip is a small and discreet wearable device that helps those living with vision loss with day to day traveling by detecting obstacles in one’s immediate environment and then notifying the wearer of these obstacles through intuitive vibrations. It uses ultrasound to detect any obstacle it is pointing at and vibrates faster and stronger as the obstacle/person gets closer. The BuzzClip is an electronic device that offers upper body protection that is sometimes missed by a guide dog or cane. It is not meant to be a replacement for the cane or a guide dog, but rather it is supposed to work in tandem with traditional aids to provide the user more information on their surroundings, particularly at head level.

The BuzzClip can be easily attached to many forms of clothing (i.e it can be clipped on a lapel of a winter jacket, on a collar, sleeves (long or short) and the lining of one’s belt) making it a highly versatile and useful device. There have indeed been many proximity detectors that came out over the years. And the earlier ones definitely caused a lot of frustration as the functionality and reliability were far from advertised. But we have been working closely and testing our prototypes every step of the way with blind and partially sighted testers in Canada, the U.S and India. Although we do use the same ultrasonic technology, the technology has become much more refined over the years. Also The Buzzclip is not just another ultrasonic proximity detector. The fact that it is wearable and hands free makes it applicable in a lot more use cases. Some of our testers have been using it in line ups at coffee shops to determine when the line is moving forward. Some of them have been using it as a way finder in tight spaces or crowded rooms by walking in the directions where the Buzzclip doesn’t detect anything. Some have found it useful as they would be able to tell if the person they are conversing with got up to get water and when they get back. It provides extra information on one’s surroundings passively and users are constantly finding new ways to use this extra information.

A lot of effort was put into optimizing the user experience of the device. Limiting it to 1m and 2m modes reduces false positives and only provides vibratory feedback if there are obstacles or people in your path or coming directly at you. The device goes to sleep if you are at a fixed distance for over a few seconds so that it doesn’t constantly vibrate if you are talking to someone for example. It reactivates again if the distance changes for more than 10 cm. So once it is switched on, the user can simply carry on their usual routine without the need to operate the device constantly. The battery will last for a full days use (10 hours) on a single charge and it is rechargeable through a Micro-USB cable. (just like android phones) The Buzzclip is slightly larger than a lighter. The enclosure is made entirely of aluminum so that it is water resistant and durable and also very aesthetically pleasing. The device consists of 3 main sections, a sensor arm that is circular and smaller than the size of an iPod nano in terms of area. It is connected to the battery enclosure by a metallic spring clip that is similar to the ones on pocket knifes and multi-tools. The main body is rectangular with rounded edges and is roughly the size of a lighter. The micro-USB charging port is on the side of the main body. On the back of the main body is the vibration motor arm which is spring-loaded for when one is wearing loose clothing. The entire unit has a finish that is similar to the look and feel of the Apple TV remote. When it is worn, the only part that will be exposed is the circular sensor arm.

The BuzzClip is currently available to pre-order through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. For the next 15 days, we are offering Early Bird BuzzClips at a discounted price of $129 USD. After this campaign ends on November 22nd, the final batch of BuzzClips will be manufactured and shipped to our supporters by March of 2016.
More information and videos on our product can be found at

If you have any difficulty navigating through the campaign page, the Indiegogo app on the iphone is completely accessible and in case you want to order an Early Bird BuzzClip, here is the direct link to place an order.
