Re: Installation of Windows 10

Well, it works but its not really a good idea to upgrade over an
existing windows. Hope things won't go wrong later. A clean install is
always better. Does anyone know if you are forced to use a Microsoft
account, or can you stil sign in with a local account?

I just tried it a while ago. Of course, something went wrong when trying to
activate narrator. Looks like it installed, but it is either stuck or
something. Now of course I have no idea what's going on on the screen.

Joseph and Rob,

Thank you for describing the accessibility of the upgrade process. I
completed it, and both JAWS and Windows 10 are working well.

I just want to remind you that Narrator on Windows 10 is started and
stopped by pressing windows key and enter.
after starting the upgrade, I believe the PC restarted twice, after that
I waited about 20 minutes and pressed windows+Enter and Narrator helped
me finish the setup.
At one point, Narrator would not read the screen, so I quit and
restarted it with windows+Enter.
dont forget to make a backup before upgrading.

I know there's been much discussion of various aspects related to this
topic. However, I'd like to know if anyone here has successfully
or upgraded to Windows 10 independently.
Did you use JAWS 16 or Narrator or both? I'm ready to install this but
don't know that I'll have a sighted person around to help, so want to
sure I can do this with one or two screen readers.
Any tips will be helpful.
I've got my machine set and ready to go.
