Re: Using Microsoft Narrator to download and install JAWS

Keith,

 

Not 100% sure if this works in Windows 7 or not, but you can give it a try. Narrator was beefed up in Windows 10, and I know these steps would work on Windows 10:

 

Press the Windows Key + Enter simultaneously to start Narrator. This works at the login screen in Windows 10.

Hold down Caps Lock and use the left/right arrow keys to move between objects/buttons/controls. This works at the login screen and on web pages.  

 

I was able to use Narrator in this fashion to login, download, and install JAWS on a new Windows 10 installation. However, Narrator was far less sophisticated in Windows 7 so this may not work.  

 

I hope this helps!

Subject: Using Microsoft Narrator to download and install JAWS

 

Hi,

 

I have 2 new computers with Windows 7 Pro that do not yet have a screen reader.

 

I think I’ll need to use Microsoft Narrator to gain Administrative  privileges to download and install JAWS.

 

Do you think this will work? How can I activate Narrator? Any advice on practical use within Narrator will be much appreciated.

 

Is there any way to activate Narrator from the Login Screen? I doubt it, but thought I’d ask.

 

Best,

Keith
