At least once a year, NVDA users and developers gather to talk about NVDA and its development. We call this NVDACon (after Python Conference, or PyCon for short). If you use NVDA, or is a programmer (both blind and sighted) interested about making programs accessible or want to learn more about NVDA, you're welcome to join NVDACon.

Testing latest features

For those who would like to test latest NVDA features, go to NVDA Snapshots page.

Apart from official snapshots, the author of this website maintains snapshots for the following features:

A few notes when using these snapshots:

  1. The build is equivalent to portable version of NvDA. Thus it may not work under UAC and secure screens.
  2. The snapshots does not support automatic nor manual updates - you need to download the installer when the new version is released. All the features in the snapshots are based on current NVDA/master branch.
  3. These snapshots are not the official snapshots from NV Access (except when specified. For official snapshots, see the link on NvDA snapshots.
  4. As noted, these snapshots are bleeding edge code/features, thus may break. Use them with care.
  5. For Post-XP builds, if you are using Windows XP/Server 2003, use it with caution.
  6. For Windows Insiders Canary builds, only Windows 10 users who are Windows Insiders should use them, as they may contain unstable changes.
  7. If you have questions about these snapshots, please email joseph.lee22590@gmail.com (except for Microsoft Edge builds).
