Hi all,
I wonder what other free  voices are out there? I'm concerned I won't 
understand the british accent of the Espeak voice.

Also how do you turn NVDA off and do you use the numeric keypad for reading 
commands? Do you press insert up and down arrow to read current and say all 
lines?

Hi Ashley,

As Joshua said, you can download NVDA from www.nvda-project.org. You might 
also want to check out mainmenu.acbradio.org. The Main Menu team put 
together a comprehensive ZIP file which includes the NVDA screen reader 
itself along with a lot of tutorials on how to use it.

As for comparisons, I can't really speak to that. I did download NVDA as a 
backup screen reader in case JAWS didn't work for something. However, after 
a couple weeks of using it, I didn't really like it and uninstalled it. I 
don't know if this was just a matter of my inexperience with using NVDA and 
my experience with using JAWS or if it's just that JAWS is a better screen 
reader, but I'll leave that up to more experienced NVDA users to decide.

Chris

Hi all,

Where do you download NVDA? Are there tutorials to learn to use it?
Also, how does it compare with paid screen readers such as jaws? Does it 
read the internet just as well?

I’m thinking of downloading it if I volunteer somewhere.

Thanks.
Ashley
