NVDA 2016.2 is released!

Our favorite screen reader NVDA – a free and open source screen reader has just announced it’s newest version 2016.2! Highlights of this version as mentioned on the release blog post:

Highlights of this release include the ability to indicate spelling errors while typing; support for reporting grammar errors in Microsoft Word; and improvements and fixes to Microsoft Office support.

It’s heartening to learn that NVDA is being used by 10s of thousands of users spanning around 120 countries. Efforts of NV Access team are indeed commendable and deserves a great support and contribution.
