I think the rumor about NVDA dying is probably fake news.

Hello Group,

I certainly hope the answer is a resounding no!
I did install NVDA 2018.1 on my windows 7 computer a few days ago and it remains a loyal software program for my purposes, and was happy to finally donate a small gift of appreciation!

I know the group, Webaim has been supportive over the years, and when receiving services from my state blind commission in 2016, suggested they look into providing computers with NVDA for those they serve using such. Up to then, they were providing Jaws for their clients using computers. Even at a fraction of the cost, organizations would be well-advised to consider NVDA instead of Jaws from a financial POV.
Everyone would win!
Whether or not this suggestion has been acted on is unknown to me. Thank you!

Narrator has no scripting as yet, so is rather stuck with what it works with.

You know that everything has a life span. I hope NVDA still has a lot of years ahead of itself but maybe just maybe Narrator will become a great screen reader and there will be no need for NVDA or Jaws or any other screen reader.
Right now NVDA is my screen reader of choice with Jaws being my backup that I very seldom use.

You know there was an update to the latest version to fix a bug??
I find this idea annoying also but there persists in the system admin world a fewer of using open source software. I see no issues as there are hacking tools that can get into commercial software as often it to is compiled with the same tools and so easy to figure out the hacks.

GM all,


When I'm looking at a list of files in a folder, as I go down the list, NVDA interjects extra words in addition to what's on the line. These must be column headers or something? Someone told me, a long time ago, where in NVDA I can go to turn that off. Very sorry I didn't save that note or write it down somewhere. Could someone please tell me again? I'll save it this time.


Thank you.

I don't know how well it works on windows, (I've never tried the windows version), but quicktime was an excellent video editing program on the mac.  Whether that translates to the windows side of things, I don't know, though I do seem to recall that qt wasn't accessible on windows, because of the libraries used to make it windows capable, but I could be wrong on that.

I've found an old Movie Maker file and so, I'm using Movie Maker again.

Only problem now is that I also have to convert some of my video files

I to am wondering if there's any video editor that would work with NVDA?

Well, I use tab until I here timeline.

Also, Movie Maker uses ribban tabs. To get to them just press ault.

I navigate them with my arrow keys. Left and right and when I found
the tab I want, I would press down. Then lets say when you get to
animations, you have to press space to get more.

Re: python

You don't need to download anaconda, that's just the build environment they suggest.  I didn't use it, I just used the python 2.73 program, as that's the one I had at the time.  I would guess python 3.0 would probably work too, but I've not tried it with their course.  You don't need a special ide for using python, just a plain old text editor like notepad will work just fine.

As far as I know, (and I did take a couple of their courses), the EDX courses are completely accessible.  The courses I've taken didn't have any images showing data you needed to answer a question, so that's a good thing.  The discussions can get a bit heated, but that's normal, no matter what class you're in.  But, specifically the intro to python course is accessible, I know for sure, because I took that one, along with some others, like cell phone technology, and css creation.  (I still don't have a handle on css, but ...)

Narrator's not bad. I kind of like it. Sometimes.

You know that everything has a life span. I hope NVDA still has a lot of years ahead of itself but maybe just maybe Narrator will become a great screen reader and there will be no need for NVDA or Jaws or any other screen reader.
Right now NVDA is my screen reader of choice with Jaws being my backup that I very seldom use.

I think the rumor about NVDA dying is probably fake news.
Don't worry ...

Hello Group,

I certainly hope the answer is a resounding no!
I did install NVDA 2018.1 on my windows 7 computer a few days ago and it remains a loyal software program for my purposes, and was happy to finally donate a small gift of appreciation!

I know the group, Webaim has been supportive over the years, and when receiving services from my state blind commission in 2016, suggested they look into providing computers with NVDA for those they serve using such. Up to then, they were providing Jaws for their clients using computers. Even at a fraction of the cost, organizations would be well-advised to consider NVDA instead of Jaws from a financial POV.
Everyone would win!
Whether or not this suggestion has been acted on is unknown to me. Thank you!

I just have to ask, why 2018.1?
That's rather old.
