This Saturday, the free NVDACON will be of interest to your students who use Windows and screen readers.

My talk is again about learning foreign languages using NVDA ---

>From the web page:

Learning New Languages and Reading with multiple languages(Follow-up to last year's session)
Getting ready to learn a new language requires extra steps for an NVDA user, but NVDA is the most versatile screen reader when it comes to working with
multiple languages. In this talk, I will go over the Windows settings and NVDA add-ons that assist with the process. There will be plenty of time for questions
and users who work with multiple languages will be given time to chime in with their expertise. The talk is suited for beginners as well as advanced users
who can enrich our community's knowledge.
Some topics covered include: changing to an international keyboard, setting up Windows one-core for different languages, using the SwitchSynth and the
Braille Extender add-ons to assist in language learning and how to mark up a document to read properly in another language. We will also cover the quick
dictionary add-on for those who need to translate between source and target languages.

I also have a handout they will post which I'm encouraging people to publicly share.
