Re: Lenovo computers wunning Win10 and NVDA
There are a couple of talking WinPE ISO files out there that you can use for installing Windows.
WinPE is Windows Pre-install Environment, which is the environment you enter while installing Windows from the DVD.
Microsoft has made WinPE available to all for a long time, but only recently has it been set up with audio drivers to load either NVDA with Eloquence, or NVDA with eSpeak.
Brian Smart made one with Eloquence, and I think that is just briansmart.com
At the office, the other set of WinPE using eSpeak comes from a site that I am blocked from accessing from work, so someone else will have to give that to you.
When you boot up to WinPE, it’s just like you are on someone else’s computer, it has Internet access and usually extra utilities, along with all of Windows tools.
You remove the DVD and put in the Windows install DVD and run it like any other installer and it will be talking.

Subject: [nvda] Lenovo computers wunning Win10 and NVDA
Forgive me for this post looking like it does, but I have to do email with my iPhone and I'm not as good with that as I am with the computer. Ours just died tis morning and we're going to try to get a new one as soon as we can. We're currently looking at a Lenovo, but this will be the first computer my husband and I have bought solo and are going to try to set it up with little to no sighted assistance as that would cost more. I know it can and has been done by other blind people, but I don't know if this particular brand has been done. Should this be doable using Narrarator then NVDA or do these computers have some sort of funky screen that must be gotten through by a sighted person like a few years ago with some? It will have Windows 10 on it if that helps any? Thanks for any help and wish us luck. We're thinking of getting it from Best Buy.
