The NVDA Remote project we posted about earlier this week looks like it's going to become a reality, thanks to overwhelming support from over 150 donors and climbing. The project has raised $11,258 in just over two days, shattering its $10,000 goal with over a month remaining. Donations are still being accepted through April 21, and will mean more time is spent on the project. In addition, users can donate $100 or more to be a part of a beta test group for the project.
NVDA Remote will allow a user to control a remote machine and receive near immediate speech feedback using the NVDA screen reader. Existing solutions either are costly or include considerable speech lag. The beta list will be created over the coming days, according to a tweet from Christopher Toth.
@Mongoose_Q: We will be setting up the beta mailing list and preparing the NVDA RA Beta over the next couple of days.
Congratulations to the developers on their crowdfunding success.Source: Indiegogo
