Dear global NVDA community,
After reading recent threads on various
NVDA lists and looking at some tweets, I find myself asking if
I should do it again: record the 2018 edition of the popular
“Welcome to NVDA” tutorials set. The thing is, there are more
superb tutorials out now, including NV Access’s own Basic
Training module. I do understand that many folks have come to
know NVDA through my tutorials and some tutorials used mine as
a reference or a guide.
For reference, the 2015 edition of this
tutorials set can be found at:
If the community says I should record the
2018 edition, it’ll be done with some conditions:
- The tutorial
will be based on a combination of 2017.4 and latest snapshot
- I’ll be
using Windows 10 Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update).
- I will not
ask for payment for this set; if you insist on paying me,
I’d rather ask you to donate to NV Access.
- If possible,
I’ll come up with a text transcript and a way for folks to
provide edits via pull requests on GitHub.
- I’ll be
moving away from Internet Explorer for browse mode
demonstrations, opting for Firefox and Microsoft Edge.
Below is a list of changes between 2015 and
2018 editions provided you say I should do it:
- I’ll be
using Windows OneCore voices for most speech demos.
- Chapter 1
(Intro) will be expanded and re-recorded to improve
recording quality, as well as adding additional information
such as command line switches to start a portable copy after
creating one and a note on Controlled Folder Access.
- Chapter 2
(Basics) will go over more touchscreen possibilities, some
command changes (including copying the contents of status
bars) and others.
- Chapter 3
(Objects and object navigation) will feature new examples,
especially more universal app examples.
- Chapter 4
(Browsing the web) will feature reading PDF documents with
Microsoft Edge, turning off single letter navigation
commands on the fly and elements list improvements.
- Chapter 5
(Apps) will feature new and updated examples.
- Chapters 6
and 7 (Configuration) will feature new settings, including
Windows 10 OCR and many others.
- Chapter 8
(tools) will feature content recognition.
- Chapter 9
(Add-ons) will feature new and updated examples, including
Remote Support add-on.
- Addenda may
include a word on ARM64 support, development snapshots and
