From the producer: "The NVDA screen reader can be downloaded free of charge by anyone. We
do this because we believe everyone, especially the world’s poorest
blind people deserve access to computers and a way out of poverty. If
you have the means, no matter how big or small, please consider making a
donation before downloading NVDA. We rely on donations and grants to
continue improving NVDA and to ensure it remains compatible with the
world’s rapidly changing technology.

Please note: NVDA is only available for PCs running Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and later.
If you require a version of NVDA that can still run on Windows XP or Vista, please download the much older NVDA 2017.3 for Windows XP instead. NV Access does not however recommend or support running this older version on newer Operating systems."
