[access-uk] Re: Getting started with an XP asus 901 netbook

Hi Barbara -

The     set up screens you mentioned, such as user name,
language etc, are the ones that both James and Chris seem to be saying are
accessible with Narrator, I hope they can confirm this for me; have you guys
actually booted up an XP machine strait out of the box, and got going
without any sighted help for those initial set up screens, or are you just
thinking it can be done? -

Andy

Sorry Andy, I was confused as to why you were talking about the Asus and
Vista as it is XP. That will teach me for jumping into the middle of a
conversation!

I was able to get sighted help when setting up my Asus and this consisted
of things like your name, keyboard language etc, I can't remember exactly
what else. I am not sure if bypassing this will have any affect or if you
can launch this later. Guess I was lucky in that I could call on sighted
help.

Barbara - I have been asking if it's possible to get the Asus 901 working
witout sighted assistance; it hasn't arrived yet. The replies I have had
suggest that Narrator will work imeediately, but I wasn't feeling too
confident about that as it didn't on my Vista laptop. I am imagining that
there will be certain screens on boot up of the Asus that will be asking
for user registration etc, that sighted help will be needed to get past.
Chris and James are saying that using ALT N will get me past these
screens, and I was queerying this key stroke, as it doesn't do anything
on my Vista laptop, but I guess it might under XP on the Asus.

Perhaps as you are using one of these netbooks, you can tell me if you
managed to get it working without sighted help?

Thanks -

Andy

Andy, have I lost the thread but are you using an Asus 901 netbook?
Sorry if I missed out a few messages and this is not the case.

Well I've just pressed alt N on this Vista laptop, and nothing
happened, it issued the tone that says it's an invalid key stroke! -

In Vista it launches Narrator, since Windows u actually brings up Ease
of Access Centre not Utility Manager. Guess Microsoft wanted
consistency though and Windows e is already taken up.

This is different to Vista then Chris? With Vista, I couldn't get
to Narrator until I'd by-passed a couple of screens with sighted
help! -

Narrator will speak that. Usually you go straight into Windows
setup.

Chris - Isn't there a screen first that asks for a user name or
some log on details? -

Andy, you should be able to use Narrator from the word go. As
soon as you hear sound or music, press Windows u, and Narrator
will load.

Hi all -

Firstly, many thanks to all that help me understand about
netbooks, and enabled me to make my choice of the Asus 901.

This machine comes preloaded with XP, is it possible to get
started on this machine without sighted help? Can anybody tell
me which screens come up first, and how to get past them to the
point where I can make use of Narrator?

Thanks -

Andy
