Need or Want to Switch to NVDA?

Firstly, I’d like to put your mind at ease. I made the switch more than three years ago, from Window-Eyes to NVDA and the learning curve wasn’t steep at all. NVDA is now a fully-fledged and fully-functional screen-reader that is considered by many to be the best around. The best of all? You can simply download a copy of NVDA and start to use it at no cost.
Donations are welcome, but cost should no longer keep you from having access to the latest version of a tool you can use to access your PC, the world wide web and beyond.
Check out the link below for a concise tutorial on switching from Window-Eyes to NVDA. At heading level 3, near the top of the page, there is also a link for switching from JAWS to NVDA and near the end of the article, there is info on how to join a list for users of NVDA.
Please feel free to pass info on to others who might be finding themselves needing or wanting to change screen-readers.

Tech Treasures – Tutorial on Google Chrome

Today I am sharing a podcast that was done by David Moore on the accessibility and basic operation of Google Chrome.
If, like me, you have been wondering about the accessibility of Google Chrome, feel free to have a listen by going to

Here is what David wrote in a recent post about the abovementioned tutorial.

“It is a MP3 file that lasts about an hour. I go over how to brows with Chrome, I go through all of the settings, and I show you how to download files using Chrome. It is accessible. There is only one vertical menu called the Chrome menu that you get to by pressing the alt key. Everything you need is in just one menu instead of many.”
