To whom it may Concern:
I am Laura Cornwell one of the members of NVDACon international planning
Committee. NVDA (Non-Visual Desktop Access) is a free and open source screen reader that allows blind people around the world access to technology at no greater cost than their sited peers. You can find out more about NVDA at http://www.nvaccess.org. The NVDA conference started out in 2014 so that users of the screen reader
could connect and talk to other screen reader users around the world. In 2015, a group of community members decided to set up a two-weekend global conference that would occur during the tenth anniversary of NVDA. We had several events ranging from how to utilize NVDA for employment of blind people, new technology being developed allowing NVDA to interface with dictation technology, and much more. You can find out about our past conferences at https://www.nvdacon.org
We are currently planning our 4th conference for the NVDA community. As one of the members of the planning Committee I would like to kindly ask if you all can please take the time to join in on all the fun. You can follow us on twitter @NVDACon. Here are the dates for it.may19 through the 21.
