Hi, Curt,

Also, the link splits between lines on my email client, so had to enter it
copying both to the run dialog and vuala, it works.

Hi Joseph, One thing to warn people about the download from that location
is only running about 1.2mb a second so its going to be quite a long
What is needed is a faster site.

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
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, the 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, web browsing using Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox,
new settings and concepts, and so many changes to add-ons and other
topics. It'll take > pages to talk about changes between 2013 and
2018 editions, as there are so many 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 > official 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 blessing.
All I ask of you is that you do it not for fame or glory, but
because you love this community.

Also, regarding payments for my work: the Welcome to NVDA series is,
was, and should remain free in consideration for many people who do
not have financial security to pay for assistance or product
tutorials. If you > insist on paying me for this tutorial, I'd
rather ask you to donate to NV Access instead so NVDA screen reader
development can continue. If you still > insist on paying me (apart
from offering me a scholarship at Cal State LA; > joking), I'd still
ask you to donate to NV Access, or if you want, a worthy project that
improves lives in the long run.

Other final matters:

* Text transcriptions are always welcome.
* Translations are more than welcome.
* Converting this into other formats is welcome (including DAISY).
* I hereby give you permission to quote my tutorial for different
purposes (writing essays, as part of a research paper, websites, >
mainstream 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 six weeks. All of you are a part of this effort.

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