Re: NVDA Help Please.

Hi Monte,
Thank you as well, as this is good to know. I'm seriously thinking about downloading the NVDA 2021.1 beta, now that I have a better understanding. I've never used any other screen reader other than JAWS for at least 30 years, but I'm ready to try something different!

Thank you again.

Janet

Hi Janet,

As I said, nvda is like jaws in many ways; you can use the same version of
nvda on a laptop or desktop.
The only difference, as in jaws, you choose the desktop keyboard for a
desktop and the laptop keyboard for a laptop.

Hi Monte,
Thank you for this! As I was searching online, I kept seeing NVDA 2021
tester, so now I appreciate you telling me the current version to download.
I've also notice when reading about NVDA, it mentions a lot about using NVDA
with a desktop, but as of yet, I haven't read anything about using NVDA with
a laptop. Do you know if NVDA is accessible to use on a laptop? Do you know
the advantages in using a full version and NVDA portable, as I didn't know
NVDA had a portible version?

Thank you.
Janet

Hi Janet,

Here is the link to download the current version of nvda.

https://www.nvaccess.org/download/

The current version is 2020.4.

ON the download page you are asked to makea donation.
This is voluntary.

You will find that nvda is very similar to jaws.

Hi Everyone,
I am ready to switch from JAWS to NVDA screen reader, so my question is can
someone please tell me what is the knewest version of NVDA, so I can
download it? Can someone give me a link to download it from a safe web site?
Can someone tell me what I might need to know about downloading NVDA? Is
there a certain setting I should know about when installing NVDA? Any other
tips will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance.

Janet
