David, thank you. I will try to do it. Thanks for your
encouragement that it will get easier over time.

The NV Access Web site doesn't have a direct download link.
When you select the Download link the file usually doesn't begin
downloading. Instead, there is a form which gives you the option
of donating to the NV Access project. There are radio buttons on
the page where you can choose an amount to donate but there is a
choice to skip the donation, which you are absolutely free to
do. Once you complete this form the download process should
start. Depending on which Web browser you are using and how it
has been set up the download might begin automatically or you
might receive some additional prompts. I think that the more you
try it the easier it will become and the more your confidence
level will increase. The bottom line is that we really can't
provide a link that will immediately initiate the download

And, as you said, it's something you need to get over. When you
go to the nvaccess.org website, the folks who created and
maintain NVDA, the Download link is at the very top of the page
and there's another option elsewhere.
It is absolutely, positively not up to anyone to provide anyone
else with direct links, even though I, and many others, do so
quite frequently. If you can't trust the site of the entity
that makes something then trusting anyone providing you a link
is a much bigger leap of faith.

become just another voice in the room; it has lost its
platform. Now, you simply declare your own truth.
