Questions Regarding The Donation Form on

David Goldfield

Hi. As I wanted to upgrade my copy of NVDA from the release candidate to the final 2020.4 release I decided to download the executable file from the Web site so that I could access it offline in the event that I should need to do a reinstall. I also decided that I wanted to make a donation to NV Access while doing so and I will say that I was successful in doing so.

On the donation form is a series of radio buttons for specific amounts along with one to specify a custom amount, which I’m fine with. The one thing that confused me is that there appears to be two separate groups of radio buttons in one list. The first group contains several amounts along with an “other” choice. Following that are more radio buttons in the same list, with another radio button labeled “other.” I gather that the first group of radio buttons are for one-time donations and the second group is for monthly donations but please correct me if I’m misinterpreting what I’m hearing.

The problem is that there is no explanatory text to differentiate these two seemingly separate groups. I kind of figured this out when for the second group Paypal indicated that I would be making regular donations to NV Access but the first group seemed like a one-time donation. If this is the case I’d like to make a suggestion that these be separated into two separate lists with explanatory text clearly indicating the purpose of each list: one time donations vs monthly donations.

Again, if I’m not interpreting this form correctly by all means please do let me know. I’m only pointing this out because those of us who are able to do so are quite happy to donate to NV Access due to how important NVDA is to so many people.
