We have a sample chapter of the "Basic Training with NVDA" available, which lists the concepts covered in the whole book, and the full review cursor section - so you can get a feel for the style of the material (and learn the review cursor) before buying:

It does include using a Braille display, yes. As the exact feature set & key locations vary between displays, it doesn't go into detail on using all the features of the Braille display, however, hopefully, you have documentation with the display which will cover some of that.

One of our contributors created this document with tips for transferring: Broadly, many of the key concepts are very similar between screen readers, and NVDA is very configurable and extendible if you do have a particular way of working you are used to.

We're certainly more than happy to talk to any government agency (or company) in the US or elsewhere about their support contract needs.

I might need to play with Edge more (and Mick and Reef probably know about this) - but what is the browser task manager in Edge? I can't find any info about it, and shift+escape doesn't do anything when I am using Edge (Windows 10 April 2019 update 1903, build 18362.53) ^Quentin

It should have used a caption & alt text: "Cover image for Microsoft Outlook with NVDA eBook edition.". Also, apologies, since the image didn't add anything I hadn't already said, I didn't think to add a description to the tweet.

Excellent :) It's easy to overlook since many laptop users simply close the lid rather than shut down, and even shutting down, Windows 10 "Fast start" doesn't fully close everything, so it's easy to go weeks without properly restarting the computer.

Is the focus definitely still in Firefox? Mouse routing is more exact in some places than others, but for links and buttons etc it usually gets to the right place. Do you have any Firefox add-ons or other programs that might be interfering?

Are you using NVDA+ENTER or just ENTER to try to activate links? If you've moved the mouse to the current navigator object (NVDA+shift+m since you're using laptop keyboard layout), it usually works, though for Google search result links, I'd just use either enter or space. ^QC
