Hi.

 

I’d be using an iPad with no WI-FI, so would your solution work?

 

Thanks.

OCR might be tricky, but you can definitely call on an AIRA or Be My Eyes agent to assist.

How often would you need to access the bios. By not having an OCR, app on a  smart phone help out. I don’t know. That’s why I am asking about it.

Hi.

 

A problem that those of us that can’t see a computer screen encounter is knowing what’s happening before Windows starts. Specifically, we can’t work with the BIOS on our own. I was wondering if something could be designed to intercept what’s on the video area and convert it to speech. I used to have such a device. It was the Speaqualizer, and with it I was able to change things in the BIOS. Sadly, it didn’t work with Windows, but it did work with operating systems that weren’t DOS, just as long as the video area was text, it worked. What I’m asking about would need to be a hardware solution, and it would probably need to have its own basic keypad for screen review.

 

Just throwing this out.

Re: Is there a way to intercept what's on a PC screen before Windows starts?

Now back in 1985 a Speaqualizer, came out with a ASI long card those where 13in cards. That had its own keypad and did read dos after boot but not before.

The NFB worked on one named the same Speaqualizer, and it did hook up to video, it also worked after boot.

in 1995 me and a few techs from GW MICRO had a double talk reading the bios. However, you had to program its driver for your video card on the system. Witch back then was easy no onboard video. Everything was ASI cards. The other problem was you had only read screen once and then you had to do it again on every move in the BIOS.

The project was dropped because of exspence and reading the BIOS was its only job. you couldn't use it as a screen reader because it was only one function read screen. you can think of it as a talking screen shot.

Changelog:

Updates a remote code execution exploit in the Windows Print Spooler service, known as “PrintNightmare”, as documented in CVE-2021-34527.

 

Details:

 

Version 20H2 (build 19042.1083):

Addresses a remote code execution exploit in the Windows Print Spooler service, known as “PrintNightmare”, as documented in CVE-2021-34527. After installing this and later Windows updates, users who are not administrators can only install signed print drivers to a print server. By default, administrators can install signed and unsigned printer drivers to a print server. The installed root certificates in the system’s Trusted Root Certification Authorities trusts signed drivers. Microsoft recommends that you immediately install this update on all supported Windows client and server operating system, starting with devices that currently host the print server role. You also have the option to configure the RestrictDriverInstallationToAdministrators registry setting to prevent non-administrators from installing signed printer drivers on a print server. For more information, see KB5005010.

 

Version 21H1 (build 19043.1083): same as 20H2.

Re: Is there a way to intercept what's on a PC screen before Windows starts?

Jason White
 

My laptop has Intel Management Engine firmware, which can be used to access the BIOS (that is, the UEFI) remotely. I don’t know whether this process is accessible with a screen reader. If it is, you could use a second machine to configure firmware settings over the network.

Of course, Intel Management Engine has to be set up and enabled, but this should be a once-only process.
