NonVisual Desktop Access

NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA) is a free, open-source Screen Reader that is empowering blind and vision impaired people all around the world.

In early 2017 Human Creative successfully tendered to produce a video documenting the impact of the software. We travelled to Vietnam, Germany and the UK to film NVDA users, students, software developers and entrepreneurs. Further footage was commissioned in New York, India and Kirabati making this our first truly global video production. In pursuit of the story we spoke to blind teachers and children in Vietnam, software developers for Mozilla, Google and Microsoft, a former Thai Senator and representatives from leading blind advocacy organisations.

NVDA has 70,000 users worldwide, has been translated into 40 different languages and is in use in 120 countries. The best part of the NVDA story? The two software engineers that developed the screen reader are blind themselves.

Human Creative is proud to assist in documenting and furthering this fantastic initiative.
