I meant to mention that :)

 

The NVDA certification exam is available here: https://certification.nvaccess.org/

 

It is free for anyone to sit.  When you pass, if you would like to have your name added to the list and receive a certificate, the cost is $100 Australian (roughly 246 Israeli New Shekel according to Google).  We know a number of organisations are using it for their clients to demonstrate proficiency in computer skills.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Hi Afik,

 

Well, you're here in the NVDA users email group, so that's a great start :)  One thing you can do from right here, is endeavour to help when people ask questions and are stuck with how to do things.

 

As you know, being open source means NVDA can accept input from anyone, regardless of where you are, and we do value our many volunteer contributors around the world.  We have our list of open issues at: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues which you are most welcome to either contribute to, if you find a bug which isn't there, or investigate to confirm the current status of reported issues.  We accept pull requests for issues, or if you have an idea which might not fit in NVDA core, you might consider creating an add-on for it: https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html

We also have a developers email list you might be interested in joining: https://groups.io/g/nvda-devel

I can't help directly with a job - unless you are based in Australia, in which case we do currently have a developer position we are looking to fill: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nv-access-seeking-software-engineer/  Please note, you do need to be an "Australian resident for tax purposes" to be eligible (you can find the Australian Government's definition of that term here if you are unsure: https://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/international-tax-for-individuals/work-out-your-tax-residency/#:~:text=The%20primary%20test%20of%20tax,physical%20presence).

Kind regards

Quentin.
