NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) is a free and open source screen reader application for the Windows OS. It is developed by NV Access, a non-profit organization which was established in 2007 by two blind childhood friends, in order to develop and support free and open source software for visually impaired individuals. The founders of NV Access began developing NVDA when they realized that most of the available screenreader programs were prohibitively expensive, costing up to thousands of dollars. Thus, they set out to build a free and accessible solution in order to provide millions of visually impaired individuals a way of interacting with their computer. To this end, NVDA contains, among other features, a speech synthesizer supporting over 50 languages, automatic announcement of text under the mouse, and support for refreshable Braille displays.

NVDA announces "Article" before every article.
When using quick keys to navigate articles on a web page, the article text/label should be announced first and then “article” should be announced after it in order to streamline the browsing process.
