We believe that every Blind + Vision Impaired person Deserves the right to freely & easily access a computer. WE create the software which makes that possible.

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. NVDA can also convert the text into braille if the computer user owns a device called a braille display

NVDA works with Microsoft Windows. You can download it to your PC, or to a USB stick which you can use with any computer.

NVDA is available in 43 languages worldwide. you can install eloquence add-on to use popular text-to-speach voice by nuance with NVDA which is also provided below.


Millions of People:

There are 285 million blind & vision impaired people in the world. They all have amazing gifts to contribute to society, but they need the right tools to realise their dreams.

Technology Is The Key:

Technology opens up so many doors. But for those of us without sight, computers don’t work straight out of the box.

Software called a

screen reader

is needed to translate visual information verbally, so we can make sense of what is on screen.

Unfortunately many screen readers cost thousands of dollars — often more than the computer itself. This holds millions of people back from affording to use a computer and discovering their potential.
