Hi.  This is probably not news to NVDA users.  However, for those who don't
follow the progress of this screen reader there is a release candidate for
the upcoming version 2011.1 online at www.nvda-project.org.
I've been a user of this screen reader since late 2009 and I find it to be
stable and very usable.  While it is probably not the most appropriate
choice for people in a corporate environment it is quite acceptable for many
casual and even savvy home users.  It is free and open source and works well
with Firefox, Thunderbird and Outlook Express.  It has adequate support for
Microsoft Word and Excel, IBM Lotus Symphony and, if you're willing to
invest in a little drama, Openoffice.  It is a good choice for students who
can't afford the cost of access to Windows via standard screen readers.

David
