    The NVDA Remote add-on is fantastic and it was a privaledge to have been a beta tester. Now that it has been released to the world, however, I find my thoughts turning to ways in which we might better leverage the tool. One idea I’ve been pondering is how we might use the remote add-on to help with training? Whether end-users or developers, NVDA Remote provides the opportunity for someone new to the technology to work directly with a more experienced user. I’m excited about what the impact of this might be.
