Hi, Don't even need Narrator if you know the drive letter. Just press Windows+R then type in drive:\nvda\nvda.exe where drive: is the drive that the pen is on.

The only way would be with the help of Narrator typing the letter of your flash drive, then a colon, then a backslash, then the full path to the NVDA executable simply named nvda.exe.

The site says to put 'Autorun' onto the pen, and that this should automatically launch on plugging in the pen drive. Although we did this, my sighted colleague says that on connecting the USB stick to the PC, the box still comes up asking if I want to run movies, open folder to view files, take no action and all that. > > Does anyone have any ideas as to why NVD is not running without the need for further clicks? > > Thanks, > Clive > > > > Clive Lever > Diversity and Equality Officer > Kent County Council > > Office: 01622 221163 > Email: email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> > > > Kent County Council > Room G37 > Sessions House > Maidstone, Kent. > ME14 1XQ > > > > -- To find out more about BCAB and the benefits that membership can bring, please visit our website: http://www.bcab.org.uk/ To manage your subscription to the BCAB mailing list, please visit our website: http://www.bcab.org.uk/bcab-discussion-list/ To discuss matters relating to the mailing list, please email email@example.com.
