About this page.
This page holds links to applications that work well with NVDA.
Winamp is a media player for windows that was revised in 2018. It can now even play podcasts and rip CD's.
VD is an open source video editor that just so happens to be accessible. The developer did not code with accessibility in mind, which is why a few controls in the preferences dialog still do not read, but this is included here because all main menus read and the program has a wide array of keyboard shortcuts.
Zoom is a conferencing application that can also double as a screen sharing application. Since Zoom has made a commitment to accessibility their software keeps getting better in regards to accessibility. Below will be links and contact emails for feedback.
