Then you should think about getting a ChromeBook, if you want to try Chrome
OS. You can't easily put it on your existing desktop.
I don't know why you're so frightened of Windows 10, it's a great operating
system, and Narrator is getting really good.
All the best

Subject: [access-uk] android or chrome os on a desktop?
am currently running win7 on my desktop machine, but seemingly support for
this is going to end this coming january.
not only do I not really want windows 10, as I have just heard so many
stories of access issues with it, especially when it comes to those pesky
ribbon menus, but as my current screenreader is window-eyes, that seemingly
won't work with it as well.
so if I have got to change both my os and screenreader, rather than the
win10 rout, I wondered if there is any sort of android desktop machine?
as at least having used that on my samsung phone, if there is, I thought
that may be a better rout to go.
if that's not possible, another option that I am considering, is something
like chrome os, again, if I can find that on a desktop machine, so am
wondering if anyone has had any experience of this with it's screenreader,
and range of apps?
as I have heard a few good things about this, but don't really know that
much about it.
