Re: NVDA won't install on win10

One way I have used in the past is to use a registry entry hack to have your sound drivers come up in “safe mode”.  When I had to then go in to “safe mode” I could use NVDA. I have not tested this on Windows 10 yet.

Good you got it fixed.  What a pain in the but you had to get a sighted person to help you get it out of safe mode. I wished Microsoft created some sort of talking softwear  to get us out. That’s if you can’t get a sighted person to help. If you live with one or have access to someone who can help. Great. Some of us blind folk may not be as fortunate to have a sighted person near.

Hello Everyone,


Thanks to all who offered suggestions. I got the machine fixed. It was

in s mode, the narrator on it wasn't speaking well at all so I

borrowed a pair of eyes, got it out of s mode, and then was able to do

an NVDA install. After that an update from 1803 to 1909 and the

machine was humming along much better.

Again thanks.
