I was in the windows 8.1 OS with Window eyes.
Then we started the update without window eyes being on (due to me trying to do
the update without sighted assistance and the 8.1 OS being so damn slow and not
responding to my inputs.
Then I had to leave because it took 3 hours to
download the windows 10 update to a 7% completion.
The next day my wife went tothe ER with signs of a
stroke, and I have been with her for the past 4 days and now I am home, but when
her cousin told me that the H D M I drivers were not installed with the windows
10 update, and the window eyes screen reader having been uninstalled due
to not being supported by windows 10, he is at a loss. The computer is
over at his house, so I can not tinker with it.
