Hello.  This is Sky. I would like to thank NV Access for the great screen reader they’ve come out with.  I had no idea that 11 years ago that NVDA would even be as good as it is now. 11 years ago , when I looked at NVDA, it was quite primitive compared to today. It didn’t support SAPI 4 until 2007, only SAPI 5. When you went into a dialog box, NVDA would read the entire dialog from top to bottom. For example, if you went into the run dialog, it would say, run dialog type the name of a folder, document, or internet resource, and windows will open it for you. OK button cancel button browse button. This was 11 years ago, 2006. Also, in 2006, You couldn’t install NVDA on a computer, you could only run it via USB, or if you had the folder on one of your drives, you had to launch that folder, and then run NVDA. Here’s to a great future with this product!
