Re: NVDA 2020.3 beta 1 is now available

I recently had to create a new user account on my PC in order to correct a problem which I won't go into in this message as the problem had nothing at all to do with NVDA. Once I did this I noticed snappier responsiveness when moving the cursor around in a Microsoft Word document. With the beta of 2020.3 with UIA support enabled I am noticing that responsiveness in Word 365 is almost as good as it is in Jarte. This has really pleased me and has made me more excited and willing to use NVDA, particularly with Word.

It works better in Google Chrome and Edge!

It is more snappy in many places!

Hi, Quentin,


I'm testing the new beta version of NVDA and so-far it's working great for me.

Beta1 of NVDA 2020.3 is now available for download and testing. For anyone who is interested in trying out what the next version of NVDA has to offer before it is officially released, we welcome you to download the beta and provide feedback.

NVDA 2020.3 includes several large improvements to stability and performance, particularly in Microsoft Office applications. There are new settings to toggle touchscreen support and graphics reporting. The existence of marked (highlighted) content can be reported in browsers, and there are new German braille tables.


This beta will prompt to update to future 2020.3 betas, release candidates and the final 2020.3 once it is released.


Visit for more information and to download the new beta.

Kind regards
