Webinar: NVDA: Non Visual Desktop Access: The free and
open source Windows Screen Reader that’s closing the digital divide!

Imagine! A free public Webinar about a free screen reader that really
works and is being used by more than 8% of all screen reader users world
wide in over 20 languages! It’s NVDA ­ it’s free ­ it’s open source ­ it's
portable - it works on any Windows based PC -and it’s functionally
comparable to commercial offerings.
NV Access inc. an Australian not-for-profit organization supports and
manages NVDA. "We believe that accessibility should not be an extra cost
for the user. Blind and vision impaired people have the right to access
technology at no more cost than their sighted peers.
Our goal is to make that happen!"
So register to hear one of the founders of NV Access talk about how well
managed Free & open source software can further these goals and hear how
NVDA is really closing the digital divide for blind and vision impaired
users across the globe.
