NVDA 2023.1rc1 available for testing

The Release Candidate (RC) of NVDA 2023.1 is now available for download and testing. We encourage all users to download this RC and provide feedback. Unless any critical bugs are found, this will be identical to the final 2023.1 release.


A new option has been added, “Paragraph Style” in “Document Navigation”. This can be used with text editors that do not support paragraph navigation natively, such as Notepad and Notepad++.

There is a new global command to report the destination of a link, mapped to NVDA+k.

Support for annotated web content (such as comments and footnotes) has improved. Press NVDA+d to cycle through summaries when annotations are reported (e.g. “has comment, has footnote”).

Tivomatic Caiku Albatross 46/80 braille displays are now supported.

Support for ARM64 and AMD64 versions of Windows has improved. There are many bug fixes, notably Windows 11 fixes.

eSpeak, LibLouis, Sonic rate boost and Unicode CLDR has been updated. There are new Georgian, Swahili (Kenya) and Chichewa (Malawi) braille tables.

Important Note:

  • This release breaks compatibility with add-ons made for NVDA 2022.4 and earlier.
