Read the “Using NVDA to Evaluate Web Accessibility” article: goo.gl/eGPDp

Watch the “Testing for Accessibility with the NVDA Screen Reader on Windows” video on Egghead.io: goo.gl/Umv8UX

If you’re on a Windows machine and would like to get started with screen readers, NVDA is a great option. The project is open source and funded by donations (please consider giving if you actually end up using it for work!). Today on the show I’ll cover the basics of navigating a page with NVDA, and share some useful keyboard shortcuts to make you more efficient. If you’ve had a nagging feeling like maybe your site could use better accessibility, but you haven’t known where to start with screen readers, check out today’s episode!

Sorry forgot to explain that! According to the web aim survey on screen reader usage (webaim.org/projects/screenreadersurvey6/) NVDA is most commonly used with Firefox.

I'm surprised to see Firefox used on the Google Chrome Developers channel.

IE6-10+ and Firefox. Yes, but why? Any assumptions?

Why does it sound such… Robotic? Could an author use Web Speech API or… Microsoft Zira, hmm.

Good Parts NVDA supports tons of different voices. from what I get from the literature and my experience with people that use such software the "robotic" has the main advantage to speed it up once you are used to it.

yeah, combine voice from M$ Win's built-in Narrator and NVDA functionality please 🙂 EDIT: under Windows, you can change synthesizer settings in the program to MS Speech API or even download addons for more options
