Laura,
 
You can assume that the first blank is your user id and the second your password. Then hit enter to see if a more accessible page shows up. Have you tried using JAWS Convenient OCR on the page to read the labels?

Unsuccessful …… I followed these steps and did fine until I got to the page to type in my user name and password.  Once I was at that page Jaws would only say “blank” when I would press the arrow keys and would say nothing when I tried to tab or press enter.  The Jaws curser was even more limiting.  Does anybody know why this would be happening? …… Using Jaws 18, Windows 10, and Internet Explorer.

Open your browser (chrome or ie) and control-o to open an address.

Enter 192.168.1.1 

 

You’ll be prompted for user id and password.

Dave,

 

I already have a user name and password of my own …… Someone did this for me many months ago.  I need to learn how to do this myself due to a security breach.  How do I log into the router using this address you gave me?

Laura,

 

You need to log in to your router using a web browser. Usually the address is 192.1680.1. But check your documentation. If you've never set a password, then the user names is admin and password is admin. The web GUI is usually quite navigable with JAWS.

Hello,

 

Is it possible to change the password on my wireless router myself using Jaws? …… If so, could someone please tell me how to do this?

 

Thanks,

Laura
