Only one correction, windows protection is a form
of windows pe, you can look at boot.wim and it will tell you this by checking
each image in boot.wim with dism.

That is the reason behind my frustration--not that you asked the

than myself understands and shares this frustration. I am virtually
driven mad on the various blind technology lists I'm on by the frequency of
the same question being asked, or the same answer being given (and, yes, this
is frustrating) over, and over, and over again because folks just won't read
through an entire thread before making their next contribution. I've
said this, more than once, but it falls on deaf ears. It makes
understanding a conversation, and particularly in retrospect if reviewing an
archive, hellishly more difficult.
The point I am now trying to make,
and was trying to make, is that the nature of the information shared on this
thread has been fragmentary, at best, and not entirely clear.
well intend to download the Windows PE from the sites mentioned and see if I
can fire up either Narrator or NVDA or any kind of speech, as I have never
experienced this firsthand and will openly admit that I "won't believe it
until I hear it."
I am also frustrated by the fact that it seems a very
large number of participants do not understand the difference between Windows
10 bootable media, which allows one to use Windows System Protection to
attempt to roll back to a prior restore point, or to do things like trying to
repair startup, with Windows PE, which is an entirely different animal used
for entirely different (or at least almost entirely different)
I've been in this business for decades now, and when people
are saying that you can do something that has, historically, been impossible
it is really, really helpful if they can be crystal clear about what special
workarounds are required (and it sounds like the alternate WinPE is one of
those) and the specific steps needed to "pull it all together" even if a
tutorial is not presented at the time.
Even though it's "heresy" on a
JAWS forum, I don't care one whit whether the pre-Windows steps are accessible
with JAWS or not. I just care that they are accessible in some way with
tools that can be obtained by anyone that needs them, at no cost, and are
fairly straightforward for that demographic. Very often "single
environment" tools are required to do anything prior to the booting of the OS
with which one is intimately (or not so intimately) familiar.

real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place
but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
