Re: screen reader using UEFI?

I think what he is sayying is what we have all said. The bios is often defaulted to use the function keys as media keys, not function keys. Changing this at bios level is impossible for the blind as obviously, no code is running. however it does transpire that a year or so back one particular laptop had a special bit of software that saved the contents of the cmos ie the bios data, and allowed one to alter things then reboot at which time the data was loaded and the configuration changed on the rebooted machine. Sadly from what I've been able to find out, this is certainly not universal, and often not done, possibly due to security concerns.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Your only option if it is not function key changeable by some key combination, is to get a sighted person to do it.
I have heard of I phone users using the short text mode of the seeing Ai App to do this, but it seems this is quite a laborious process!
Good luck drag some unsuspecting sighty in and let them tell you what is going on!
