Los Angeles, California, Boulder, Colorado, San Francisco, California – The organizers of NVDACon US, one of the largest gatherings of NVDA users, developers and enthusiasts around the world, is proud to announce that San Francisco Light House, a blindness agency in the Northern California region, will be joining the conference as keynote speaker. With over a hundred years of service to the blindness community in the San Francisco area, coupled with recent donation to DictationBridge project, the organizers felt the agency is best suited to let NVDA community know what they think about the NVDA community to provide advice and support for members of the community.
“This is a perfect opportunity for us, especially during the midst of our tenth year celebration,” says Derek Riemer, a student at University of Colorado at Boulder and the chief organizer of NVDACon US. “Just donating a massive amount to DictationBridge and other actions show that SF Light House is dedicated to making sure NVDA is successful in the North American region, and having an outside agency talk to NVDA community members is a great opportunity for us to bring fresh perspectives in this important occasion.”
