moderated going into the bios


Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me, is it possible for a totally blind person to access the bios
on a computer? If so, how do I do this? My laptop's keyboard got replaced today
(the down arrow key broke) and somehow my function keys got inabled when they'd
previously been disabled. I know we could just take it back and have them
disable them, but they're closed until Monday and I'd like it fixed ASAP. My
laptop is a Lenovo Thinkbook 13. I'm running the latest Jaws and Windows 10.
Thanks for any help,
Madison

Madison,

If you are wanting to switch your primary function keys back to doing f1
through f12 instead of other functions such as other computer functions;
Try using fn key plus escape. On many laptops, this toggles your function
key primary functions.

Regards.

Tony
