Laura explains what the NVDA Screen Reader is and how you can get started using NVDA on your Windows computer. Robert goes into detail about the NVDA Conference history and what is in store for us on December 5 and 6 of 2020.

This year the NVDACon theme is, “Bridging the Distance”.

What is NVDACon?

NVDACon (The Non-Visual Desktop Access Users and Developers Conference) is an annually held online conference of users, testers, developers, translators and other beneficiaries of the free, open source and community-driven NVDA screen reader.
Inspired back in 2014 by community interest, NVDACon has been conducted regionally in Asia, Korea, Japan, the United States of America, etc., and internationally each year. A steadily growing conference, NVDACon has become more exciting each year, and has furthered its reach to impact the lives of more people each year.

Stay tuned for opportunities to network with fellow NVDA users, learn about related projects, discover how you can optimize the usage of your favorite software with NVDA and hear from and interact directly with the gentlemen behind this life-changing screen reader.
