As you know, the check boxes on the items to which
you are referring, , are not spoken by Jaws when you use the SPACE BAR, to
either check or uncheck the items. By default, all the check boxes are
unchecked. Once you have highlighted an item and tapped the SPACE BAR, to check
it, route the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor, then, use the Read Current Line
command and JAWS will announce whether the item is checked or not.

is something in an ini-file.

Terabyte Drive Image Backup and Restore Suite is 100% accessible beginning
to end, including the recovery disk. There's an option to set in an INI file
when building the recovery disk that will automatically start Narrator when
said disk is booted. Works a treat, as they say. Best fifty bucks you'll ever
spend on your computer. http://www.terabyteunlimited.com

I use a solution which is I suppose is 3/4 accessible.
Snapshot will allow a fully accessible disc image backup. Provided you can
get into Windows at all the restore of the image is also a fully accessible.
You simply select the image you want to restore to and Snapshot will simply
restart your computer and about 20 minutes later you will hear your screen
reader announce your Windows login for the restored image. I have done this
several times with success without sighted help. Where it falls down is if
your system is in such a state it cannot boot into Windows. The developers
provide an ISO file to create a bootable CD drive but of course there is no
speech here on that disc. They did tell me what I needed to type once the CD
loaded to restore windows but in practice in these situations I have always
resorted to sighted help and a fresh windows install.
If you boot to Win PE, you can use 7Zip to zip up your
HD and unzip it if you need to at a later time.
Also, when you do this, you can delete two system files
that are temp files, and will save you the amount of twice your
So if you have 4GB of RAM, you can save 8GB by deleting
pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys before zipping up your HD, and windows will
recreate those two files on boot-up.
They are just temp files Windows uses as virtual

has been addressed before, but could someone suggest an accessible system

well with Jaws?

I’ve always understood that these backup image programs have accessibility
issues at certain points, but perhaps I’m wrong.
