Yes, NVDA works on Edge (and Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer). For best results, we generally recommend using the latest versions.

For our new issue template: fill in as much as you can. Not everything is relevant in every situation, but it's easier to ascertain that, EG, something works the same across the board (so we may disregard the OS you use) than have to come back & ask for it

Hi, we make the free NVDA screen reader, used by blind computer users worldwide . We've been contacted by a user of your software who advises it is inaccessible. Can you please email us at info@nvaccess.org (there's no contact info on your website)

Hi Tina, all I see is "This tweet is unavailable". Looks like your friend's tweets are protected so you can't retweet them. If they email us at info@nvaccess.org we can endeavour to help them. - Quentin.

Configuration profiles can set how information is read in different programs (even which synthesizer is used, etc). Basic keystrokes are in the User Guide: It is covered in more detail in "Basic Training for NVDA" from

Make sure you check the "Skip donation this time" radio button first :) Sorry!

Sorry, we've had a bit of feedback about that - yes the first button simply skips a little further down the page. Be sure you select the "Skip donation this time" radio button then the SECOND orange download button should work. Sorry for the confusion!

Mick and Reef are away at a conference this week, so that's why there are no new builds. You are right it appears odd that we change process then suddenly stop new builds - it wasn't intentional!

Hi Michelle, the 1st link is indeed just a link to jump past a little of the text. I'll feed back the confusion it causes. Please select the "Skip donation this time" donation radio button, then the (2nd) orange download button should work. Let me know if you have any problems.

Is it similar to this request? I think what you are asking is a bit broader. There are "Macro" programs in Windows (which record & playing back keystrokes). I haven't looked into them, but Google should find them. They may do what you have in mind?

It depends on the skill level of the person developing the add-on or script. Add-ons arguably require a slightly higher base proficiency, but then a more accomplished developer will give you a better result anyway. Either way, it's still technically possible was my point :)

The review cursor is a way of navigating text, especially text which can't be reached with regular navigation keys like arrows. The user guide has keystrokes: The recommended way to learn it though is with Basic Training for NVDA:

You certainly could make a suggestion! In fact, a few people have asked for that recently, so I've finally created an issue for it:

The updated process is at - basically instead of Next & Master, there is "Alpha" which comes out regularly. "Beta" versions start appearing 5 weeks before the next stable release. If you know all that & something is currently broken, let us know :)

Hi Robert, you can download the alpha or beta versions from Be sure to have a stable version (eg NVDA 2018.2.1) handy just in case something doesn't work.

We can understand wanting to stick with the one screen reader (whichever one works for you) between home and work. Just to dispel the myth though, if scripts can be written for JAWS, an add-on can be written for NVDA - Quentin.
