Among the new features is support for braille translation tables and EcoBraille displays, recognition of Unicode math symbols, a keyboard shortcut to toggle single letter navigation on or off, and improved navigation in web apps such as Gmail, Twitter and Facebook. This includes several bug fixes which enhance performance, usability and responsiveness of the screen reader when in use.
Windows 10 support in NVDA 2015.3 is still experimental and NV Access recommends users wait for a supported NVDA update before using the screen reader with Microsoft’s latest operating system. Full details have been provided in a statement from NV Access covering NVDA and Windows 10 on Monday.
For more information on the NVDA user experience, check out Dr Scott Hollier’s hands-on impressions with NVDA 2015.1.
