NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) is a free "screen peruser" which empowers visually impaired and vision disabled individuals to utilize PCs. It peruses the content on the screen in an electronic voice. You can control what is perused to you by moving the cursor to the important region of content with a mouse or the bolts on your console. 

NVDA can likewise change over the content into braille if the PC client claims a gadget called a "braille show". NVDA gives the way to instruction and work for some visually impaired individuals. It additionally gives access to long range interpersonal communication, internet shopping, managing an account and news. 

NVDA works with Microsoft Windows. You can download it to your PC, or to a USB stick which you can use with any PC.

Changes for Developers:
gui.nvdaControls now contains two classes to create accessible lists with check boxes:
- CustomCheckListBox is an accessible subclass of wx.CheckListBox
- AutoWidthColumnCheckListCtrl adds accessible check boxes to an AutoWidthColumnListCtrl, which itself is based on wx.ListCtrl

If you need to make a wx widget accessible which isn't already, it is possible to do so by using an instance of gui.accPropServer.IAccPropServer_impl:
- See the implementation of gui.nvdaControls.ListCtrlAccPropServer for more info
- Updated configobj to 5.1.0dev commit 5b5de48a
- The config.post_configProfileSwitch action now takes the optional prevConf keyword argument, allowing handlers to take action based on differences between configuration before and after the profile switch
