Re: Can NVDA be used in the Nepali language

Quentin Christensen

Hi Jo,

According to our translation page at

NVDA was last translated to Nepalese in 2016 and we are in need of a new translator.  That means that some of NVDA's user interface will still likely be correct in Nepalese, and anything added since 2016 won't have been translated.  That's the user interface itself.  In terms of reading out information from the computer, eSpeak NG (the more robotic voice which is the default on Windows 7) does work in Nepalese.  I don't have a list of Windows OneCore voices, so I am not 100% sure whether it is available in Nepalese in Windows 10.

As for our user interface, if you are, or you know someone who might be interested in helping translate to Nepalese again, the details are available on that page I liked to.  The first step would be to join the translation mailing list and say hi - that way if anyone else has expressed an interest in it (but not yet updated the translation) you can discuss between you how best to proceed.

Kind regards

Does anyone know if NVDA can be used in the Nepali language?   I saw a reference to Nepali in a list of languages supported by NVDA but couldn't find any detail.  There are some specific language NVDA user groups but Nepali is not one of them.
