Subject: [nvda] nvda and react os

I keep checking on the react os project. It is up 04.40 now.
So far in accessibility they came up with a built in magnifier and looks like some kind of access wizard.
I think they need blind computer users to show an interest in it.
May be they will get it accessible.
The read me is belo.
ReactOS™ Version 0.4.x
Updated January 5, 2016

1. What is ReactOS?

ReactOS™ is an Open Source effort to develop a quality operating system that is compatible with applications and drivers written for the Microsoft® Windows™ NT family of operating systems (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, Seven).

More information is available at:

2. Relationship with the WINE project

ReactOS has always intended to work with the WINE project to share as much programming effort as possible. This mainly concerns User Mode DLLs and still happens to a degree today. Other areas of cooperation lie in applications and testing suites.

3. Future compatibility

The ReactOS project, although currently focused on Windows Server 2003 compatibility, is always keeping an eye toward compatibility with Windows Vista and future Windows NT releases.

4. Supporting other System Applications

The Windows NT architecture allows for subsystems, as does the ReactOS architecture. A subsystem is an implementation of the APIs of another operating system, allowing ReactOS to run applications from other systems.
We are already looking at subsystems for: Java, OS/2, and DOS and possibly others in the future.

5. Tutorials

Developer and User Tutorials:

The tutorials contain more information on the project, compiling and testing ReactOS - amongst other topics. Contributors to the project are always welcome.
