2020.1 Released #NVAccessNewsFeed
By NV Access
NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2020.1 of NVDA, the free
screen reader for Microsoft Windows, is now available for download. We
encourage all users to upgrade to this version.
Highlights of this release include support for several new braille displays
from HumanWare and APH, plus many other important bug fixes such as the
ability to again read math in Microsoft Word using MathPlayer / MathType.
Please note, after updating any software, it is a good idea to restart the
computer. Restart by going to the Shutdown dialog, selecting “restart” and
pressing ENTER. Updating software can change files which are in use. This can
lead to instability and strange behaviour which is resolved by rebooting. This
is the first thing to try if you do notice anything odd after updating.
While downloading NVDA, please consider becoming a monthly donor. Contributions like
yours help NV Access continue our important work.
We also have a range of training material in the NV Access Shop to help you increase
your skills with NVDA. Start with the popular Basic Training for NVDA in electronic
Save with the NVDA
Productivity Bundle. This includes Basic Training, all our Microsoft
Office training, and telephone support.
