Hi everyone,


The next installment in Welcome to NVDA 2018 tutorial set is now available from This one (part 5) is a bit livelier than the last one, as it covers a diverse set of features, including more than 20 applications, several add-ons, and couple NVDA features.


Changes from 2015 edition:


  • Completely redone and reorganized, including division into three themes: Microsoft Office, universal apps, and other apps and tools.
  • Microsoft Word: enhancements over the years are showcased, including elements list, formatting commands, moving to next/previous spelling errors, spelling error buzzer, and a brief demonstration of braille input (complete with word echo (speak typed words, in this case, speak back-translation results from contracted braille to text).
  • Microsoft Excel: cell comments, column/row headers, and a word on using browse mode to read protected sheets.
  • Microsoft Outlook: introduction to calendar and other facilities besides sending and receiving email, address auto-completion when composing new messages.
  • Microsoft PowerPoint: creating and delivering presentations, speaker notes.
  • Universal apps: mostly first party apps are showcased (requires Windows 10 App Essentials add-on for some features).
  • Microsoft Store: completely revamped interface, keyboard navigation and object navigation.
  • Calculator: the modern version is showcased, including calculator modes, unit and currency conversions and others.
  • Alarms and Clock: running a stopwatch and countdown timer and how to deal with toast notifications.
  • Mail (universal app): basics of this app, including message composition and a note about navigation issues.
  • Skype (universal app): reviewing messages, basic shortcut keys, and how to answer incoming calls.
  • GoldWave: the new Windows Store version is used, along with looking at track information (GoldWave add-on required for additional commands).
  • StationPlaylist Studio: playlist viewer basics (for enhanced experience, install StationPlaylist Studio add-on).
  • Microsoft Visual Studio: code editor and Intelli-Sense.
  • Notepad++: basics and a live example of indentation tones.
  • Kindle for PC: reading a sample book and basic features.
  • 7-Zip and poedit: overview and 7-Zip File Manager, along with a brief visit to Poedit.
  • Command-line tools: Command Prompt, PowerShell, Windows Subsystem for Linux/Bash along with a review of review cursor basics.


You may notice different audio qualities for some segments, but overall, it is much better than the 2015 edition. Comments are appreciated.
