Back in May, we announced that we had collaborated with the Bowen Island Public Library to install NVDA, a free and open-source screen reader that makes computer content accessible to blind and partially sighted users. At the time, we planned to release resources on how to use NVDA, but these plans were put on the back burner due to the ongoing lodge issues.
Today, we would like to share with you a great resource from the American Foundation for the Blind to help get you started with NVDA. This resource will walk you through the basics of NVDA. If using this resource with the public access computers at the Bowen Island Public Library, you can skip the lessons on installing NVDA and Firefox, as they have already been installed and configured.
We hope this resource will help you on your way to learning NVDA.
