The tutorial is about 560 MB (uncompressed).

I can add a file that describes topics discussed and upload it as part of
the zip file, but this means everyone must download the file again, which
means precious bandwidth (well, some will need to download the file

As for putting up links to my website: I'd advise against that, as the

Hi Joseph

I just downloaded your tutorials in the zip file and apart from the last
couple of files they were named and the other ones had section. but did
say what they covered unless you go to the website.

Would it be possible to put into the zip file either in or html what
refer to like on the website of yours.

I know i could easy do it my self but then every one would have to do it
if they want to know what the files refer to.

If it was done by you every one that downloaded the zip file would have
either or html file to refer to.

I was just thinking if some one burned your tutorials onto a disk with a
copy of nvda and gave it away.

They might not have internet access and would not know what sections
with out the file.

And listening to the whole lot.

If the file is html they can as you know just jump down by headings then
refer on the html file to which mp3 file it points to.

And also refer to your website when they do have internet access.

Dear global NVDA community,

It is done! I'm delighted to announce the immediate release of the
long-awaited update to a popular series of free tutorials for NVDA users:
Welcome to NVDA, now in its third edition. Based on NVDA 2018.1 with some
features from 2017.4, this tutorial set will take you on a cruise around
NVDA world, including installation, concepts, usage, commands,
configuration, tools, add-ons and beyond.

The complete package (as a zip file) with introduction and what's new,
main tutorial series, and two addenda can be found at:

The changes made between 2015 and 2018 editions are too numerous to list,
but the highlights include use of a completely new speech synthesizer,
browsing using Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox, new settings and
concepts, and so many changes to add-ons and other topics. It'll take
to talk about changes between 2013 and 2018 editions, as there are so
to list.

One major announcement: this will be my last grand scale tutorial project
for the NVDA community. We have better tutorials now, including the
NVDA Basic Training module from NV Access. If anyone wants to produce the
fourth edition of Welcome to NVDA (perhaps in 2020), you have my

love this community.

financial security to pay for assistance or product tutorials. If you

media and what not). All I ask is a small citation.

Final remarks: I'd like to thank you all for your support for the last
weeks. All of you are a part of this effort.

Enjoy (and share) the tutorial set, and once again, welcome to NVDA 2018!
