Re: Accessible Apps for Writers, Learning NVDA

Bob Cole

That's definitely another way of going. I thought about trying to learn LaTeX, too, as I have some different ideas for novels, and auto generated table of contents as well as other things certainly sound nice. If I go that route, I'm certain I could use Notepad++, as I believe that's pretty accessible.

My goal at this point is to learn NVDA as best I can, try to find some good, straightforward resources to maybe learn LaTeX, and then get to work.

Awesome! Thank you for that information!

I'm definitely going to check into that. As an extension though, do you
know if there are any other accessible applications for writers? I know of
LibreOffice, but like I said, it's literally been years since I've been on
the Windows side.

I've been a magnification user all of my life so far, what magnification
it's really not an option for me when it comes to my laptop. It seems like
my vision isn't as good as it used to be. So I'm trying to learn a new way
of life.

I really appreciate all of your input.
