Very irresponsible of them to change all this without saving your jaws user settings or consulting you. Are you logged o as and administrator or standard user? you need to go to default program and switch your web browser you are using to Internet explorer, Firefox or chrome. If your a standard user all you can do is get a hold of your IT department and make them fix it they have to get it working for you. When 10 is very accessible once you get used to it but all your program should basically be the same as before.

Hello all,

I'm in panic mode. I have been out of my classroom for several weeks over the summer and went back yesterday to begin preparing for the upcoming semester.

Windows 2007 and IE was what I was using, but upon booting up I discovered that all computers had been upgraded to Windows 2010 and Edge. While JAWS did come up, it did not start announcing things as usual, so I didn't know the log in screen was up, and after much tabbing and entering, eventually got logged in. When I tried opening a program that used the internet, I again could not get logged in because it wouldn't take my password. Usually I hear *****when typing in the password field, but only heard the exact keys I was typing. I couldn't get in anywhere other than my school email, which is now Outlook 2016 instead of 2013. Again, here all configurations are disturbed.

I have no idea how to even begin getting my setup functional for me again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
