Dave:

Back in the days when motherboard expansion slots were I D E, including those for video, I had a KTS braille display, which had an expansion card that allowed access to the BIOS. I also know that the Papenmeier Braillex 2D Screen, also had this capability.

It was wonderful, being able to make changes to settings in the BIOS, without having to depend on someone with vision.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber

So, the consensus is that we need someone sighted to work with BIOS. Pretty
much no change since forever.

I'm sure it can be used. When I need assistance with BIOS I use a VGA to
USB grabber. Connect the VGA plug to the computer where I want to see
the BIOS and the USB to a computer where I talk to someone on Skype and
let him/her look at the VGA grabbers screen window via TeamViewer. Then
I can use the arrows to navigate around at the BIOS and he/she can tell
me whats in focus and selected. The person help does not need to have
big computer knoledge to help with that. It's always a good idea to look
in the motherboard manual to know the exact name of things ou want to
find in BIOS before starting the help sesion.

Hi gang, I have been struggling with this problem for a while now.There is
one solution that I think might work, but I have not tried it yet. Using
the
new smart phones, we have face time or video sharing. I think that we
should
be able to show someone else the screen this way and they could help to
guide us through it. Hopefully the screen could be read from someone this
way remotely.

No way that I know of. We're pretty much dependent on sighted help.

Hi folks! Correct me if I am wrong, but as far as I know there is no way
for a blind user to work in Bios with speech? Someone has asked me this
question. Is there a way to have speech when booting up and getting to
the
Bios screen? He is using an HP computer, and his function keys are not
working right. He needs to change a setting in the Bios settings so he
can
have the function keys back. Many thanks!
