Hi guys. I’ve never used Narrator, so I wouldn’t know.

Narrator does a great job at letting you find the JAWS installation download, you can press enter on that, then turn off Narrator, because the JAWS installer begins talking.
You could also use NVDA installed on a USB memory stick. You’d have to know the drive letter of the USB drive in order to start NVDA, but you could press Windows R to bring up the run command, and then try different drive letters, i.e. E:\NVDA. If this doesn’t work, press escape, then Windows R followed by F:\NVDA, etc.
The nice thing about running NVDA from a thumb drive is, unlike Jaws, you don’t need to install video intercept or anything else.
You, of course, will need to have Jaws, or another screen reader running in order to download and install the portable version of NVDA.
