NV Access staff update
Long term and valued NV Access software engineer Reef Turner has decided to move on from NV Access to pursue a new career opportunity. On behalf of the NV Access Team and the NV Access Board, we would like to thank Reef for his substantial contribution to the success of NV Access and NVDA. We wish Reef all the best for his future endeavours.
NV Access is currently putting in place a process to address the space left by Reef moving on.
Reef has set out a message that we would like to share with the NV Access and NVDA Community:
Thanks Reef, all the best.
Training and Support Manager

On behalf of NVDA contributors and add-ons community, I wish Reef luck in his new endeavor at Canva.
Reef came to NV Access and the NVDA community in 2016 and made an immediate impact with NVDA's GUI (graphical user interface) improvements. As a sighted developer, he brought his perspective on the visual appeal of screen reader user interface, particularly in the area of making NVDA dialogs more modern and appealing in terms of visuals. He was responsible for the multi-category settings dialog, wxPython toolkit testig, nad verifying the work that went into screen curtain. Reef also contributed to shift towards NVDA testing, in particular helping to define user interaction tests so NVDA can respond to common user interaction scenarios. Recently, he has shown interest in improving the NVDA add-ons ecosystem, and along with several add-on authors, helped lay the foundation for ideas around a future NVDA add-on store (this is his last major work). Some folks may have met him at NVDACon in the past, often being part of NV Access keynote sessions.
Thanks for everything, Reef - you had a huge impact on my own coding work. The work you did with NVDA impacted the community in countless ways. Please do keep in touch, and good luck as you embark on your next adventure at Canva.

Yes me also, and I know how difficult it can be to move on when you are dedicated to a cause. However if nothing else, I do hope you will be able to spread the Gospel of accessibility to other sighted programmers in the future, because until it is mandatory for developers to understand accessibility, we will always be at a disadvantage.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
Good Luck and thanks for putting up with my sometimes muddled bug reports!
