Does anyone remember the speakwalizer? This was a hardware device developed by someone in the NFB whichI had heard of it, though I don't know if I knew its name. It was this mythical amazing thing that could let you do BIOS/CMOS configurations and accessible OS installs. In my circles there were rumors floating about it, but nobody knew where or how to get one.
I eventually got so good with the DOS setup process, that I could do the whole thing without sighted help; but being able to do POST and firmware work would have been grand indeed.
That was a much more necessary technology to have back then, if you were in the PC building game. I was, but never had any money to really try and track that gadget down.
