More InformationThe cost of adaptive technology is often a significant barrier to the training and/or employment of blind and visually impaired people.
Screen-reading software makes it possible for blind people to access computers and the Internet to perform a myriad of tasks related to employment, communication, shopping, banking, finding information and much more.
One such software is NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access), a free screen reader for computers running on the Windows operating system.
• NVDA can be installed directly on to your computer, but it has the ability to run entirely from a USB stick or other portable media.
It has built-in speech synthesisers for English and more than 43 other languages.
"The NVDA screen reader can be downloaded free of charge by anyone. This allows some of the world’s poorest blind people access to computers, and a way out of poverty.
If you have the means, no matter how big or small, please consider making a donation before downloading NVDA.
