Our current model of online home-based learning may present barriers for some children.

Children who are blind, have low vision or experience print disability will benefit from using a screen reader program.

Software called a “screen reader” translates visual information verbally to help make sense of what is on screen.

Typically, screen reader programs are expensive.

However, we are here today to share with you a screen reader program that is totally FREE of charge!

NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) is available for use with computers running on Windows.

Founded by two fully blind Australian men from the not-for-profit organisation called NV Access, NVDA is available for free download and translated by volunteers into more than 55 languages.

Donations to this innovative organisation providing a free of charge service to help remove barriers is welcomed but not necessary to download this software.
