I don’t understand. If your hard drive crashes, you need
a rescue medium to perform an image restoration from a
backup external drive. This rescue medium, whether it is a
DVD,flash drive or portable external drive has some kind of
user interface which must be navigated. But there is no
speech on the rescue medium so there is no way to navigate
it without sighted help. You cannot simply plug a rescue
medium into a USB port an automatically initiate the
restoration without some kind of intervention. Options must
be selected. Check boxes must be checked, etc. How is this
done without speech orsighted help?

As stated in at least two messages in this thread today,
one must have a secondary accessible operating system to
boot in order to run the Image for Windows program. This
is accomplished in one of two ways: (1) Obtain the most
excellent Windows 10 pre-installation environment from http://www.opopanax.net/download
and write it to a USB drive or DVD, or (2) obtain the
Windows Media Creation Tool from https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691209
and make a Windows 10 installation USB thumb drive or DVD,
boot it, and start Narrator.
There is one more thing one has to do which has not been
mentioned so far, and that is, to build an external, or
"portable," copy of IFW on another drive. I have recorded
a short program detailing how to do this. Download it from

Just for my own edification, I would like to
know more about how a JAWS user goes about actually doing
a restore, if/when necessary/desirable, using Image for
I have yet to know of any way that is accessible, at least
in any conventional sense of the word, to recover from an
external system image on a system where Windows either
will not boot or, if a new HDD replacement was needed,
does not even exist.
If this utility has some sort of speech enabled recovery
process that would be most useful to know about. And I
mean specifically recovering from a disaster where you are
not going to be booting into Windows in order to kick off
the entire process.
