There are several Windows screen readers to choose from. Come discover how this free, open-source option compares. If you know how to type, understand Windows basics, can commit to attending twelve sessions, and would like to become more confident and proficient with the NVDA screen reader, this workshop is for you! Please plan to join us each week for a hands-on lesson and discussion. This workshop also includes a group mailing list where you can post your questions and discoveries for other members of your cohort to read and respond, as well as a weekly recap that is optional attend half an hour before the official start of each class. We’ll cover the basics of customizing NVDA settings, getting around in Windows 10, working with text, managing files and folders and exploring the web.

This workshop will be limited to 30 participants, so please apply to participate soon!

This event will take place online.
