NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2020.3 of NVDA,
the free screen reader for Microsoft Windows, is now available
for download. We encourage all users to upgrade to this version.
NVDA 2020.3 includes several large improvements to stability
and performance, particularly in Microsoft Office applications.

The existence of marked (highlighted) content can be reported in
browsers, and there are new German braille tables.
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.
