yes and that is why i use talking dosbox with nvda in sleep mode. so i can use all my favorite dos programs once more in a real dos environment with a real dos screen reader. and its nice that the dos screen reader talks using whatever voice you have set in NVDA, even if that voice is

with windows10 no recovery disk is really needed. you just go in and hit the reset button in settings. but before i reset i always try to fix the issue first. On 3/8/2017 5:28 PM, Shaun Everiss wrote: You know what scares me the most. People who can not fix anything when it breaks. I had

Hi Pretty sad that a simple question on here gets people bashing. Come on! Why should your basic computer user, who only wants things to work, have to enter a million commands, troubleshoot, figure things out if it doesn’t interest them in the slightest? It’s not their job nor should it be. It’s

Hmmm. I do agree some of those commands are a bit inflexable. the cd command yes you could switch folders but still remain in your home drive. You have to switch to that drive first. But it all depends how you were brought up. I was born in 1982, in 1991 I got my first computer. for 5.5 years I

You know what scares me the most. People who can not fix anything when it breaks. I had someone I was working with. I ask her, what do you do if it breaks. Her answer, incert the recovery disk, tell it to run then it just works. Ok, I say then what do you do with it, load everything up was her

that's not complicated at all. for me at least. I got my first pc back in 1992 when I was 10. It only had dos on it. dos is what I grew up with. for me, dos is just as easy as windows or mac or android is today. In my opinion dos is very very easy to learn and use. On 3/8/2017 11:18 AM,

Josh, That's because dos commands are complicated, confusing, and involve far more detail than 90% of computer users ever want to deal with. Consider the following basic example: c:\users\john> cd e: c:\users\john> Change directory to e:? Why am I still in my home directory? Its because cd is

it amaizes me that people today do not know how to use even basic dos commands. they don't know about stuff like extended memory, upper memory blocks, how to enable them, the fact that for example lotus123 for dos requires xmb and extended memory and upper memory to be enabled to run and so
