NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) is a free “screen reader” which enables blind and vision impaired people to independently use the Windows Operating system. 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”. Although suitable for Windows 10 S, The Store package has the following technical limitations at this time: * No support for NVDA add-ons * No support for running on the Windows logon screen * No support for reading UAC (User Account Control) screens * No support for Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. * Very limited support for Microsoft Excel
