forward to listening to the new tutorial once it's
completed. Thank you for doing this for us.
Dear NVDA community,
A few weeks ago I asked on the NVDA users
list if I should record an updated version of the popular
“Welcome to NVDA” tutorial series, and everyone said “yes”.
Thus, I’m happy to announce that production of 2018 edition of
this tutorial series is under way. Due to a completely new
synthesizer to be used, coupled with use of Microsoft Edge for
various web browsing examples, I’m recording most sections
anew. I’m also redoing most recordings to make the sound
quality consistent throughout the tutorial set, as the 2013
and 2015 editions had varying audio quality.
Changes in the 2018 edition (part 1 is
completed and waiting to be assembled soon):
use of Windows oneCore synthesizer. Due to popular request,
each topic will be an mp3 file of its own.
(part 1): the new checkbox that offers to start the portable
copy when created is covered, along with restart with debug
logging option. Due to time constraints, new command line
options are not covered (they’ll be covered in an addendum).
(part 2): the newly expanded welcome dialog will be covered.
Apart from that, there’s nothing new in 2018 edition.
(part 3): stays the same except for new speech synthesizer.
browsing (part 4): most examples will use Firefox and Edge,
with one or two requiring use of Internet Explorer. A new
section on MathML reading will be covered.
(part 5): Some replacements and new apps. In Microsoft Word
section, I’ll briefly demonstrate braille input support.
(parts 6 and 7): Windows 10 OCR will be mentioned but will
not be covered, and a host of changes will be done thanks to
new and revised options in NVDA.
(part 8): Windows 10 OCR will be covered last.
(part 9): instead of OCR add-on, Golden Cursor will be
covered. Also, how to disable individual add-ons will be
addenda: command-line switches, NVDA on Windows 10 on ARM.
For the most part, content should be
identical to the 2015 edition. The current edition of the
tutorial set can be found at:
