Adaptive Technology Center (ATC): NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access)

This guide details the Adaptive Technology Center (ATC) at the Anderson Library.

NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access)

"NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) is a free “screen reader” which enables blind and vision impaired people to use computers. It reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice. You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard."

While you cannot download NVDA to the computers within the ATC, you can download NVDA to your home computer or laptop.
