the Accessibility Software
We get that learning something new takes time and practice so we have gone the extra mile to provide tools to make it as easy as possible. In addition to the built-
Now, let’s get started on that pesky learning process.
The menu below is a duplicate of the Main Menu in the Speak ACCESS program. Everything leads from there. Saying the Menu title take you to the that menu which is made up of commands and/or other menus.
To navigate the User Manual, click on a menu title to go to another page in the same window. Each page will have what commands are available along with an explanation and any instructions.
Get learning and have fun, or at least a chuckle, along the way!!
Lady A: Main Menu is loaded. There are 6 items in the list.
When the program has been successfully installed type "Speak ACCESS" in the Windows search bar. The program will open with the female voice of Lady A providing an introduction and asking if you are a new user.
Each time Speak ACCESS is opened for the first time or after rebooting the computer Lady A will walk you through a minute-
Saying, “Thank you, ACCESS.”, will pause the program; a handy feature when you’re talking to someone and saying, ““Hello ACCESS ” get you the response, “I am here and ready to rock ‘n roll.”
This is what you will hear when the program opens:
I am hoping life is good. Please reply with “hello”.
Speak calmly and think about your words so you can communicate them clearly. When I say go, please repeat after me until I say stop. I will keep going even if you do not get it right. Ready, go.
Lady A will walk you through a series of words that change each time you open the program.
Hello, I hope you are well.
When in doubt, say, ACCESS Help.
For available commands say ACCESS menu. Ready.
User: ACCESS Menu.
Main Menu is loaded. There are six items in the list.
Lady A will start reading the list. You can stop her by saying any of the commands in the list. In fact, clearing your throat will stop her from speaking. She's sensitive that way. Once you’ve used the program a few times, it will become automatic to just say what menu you want.
As an alternative to saying a menu title, you can say the number in which case Lady A will describe the main contents of the menu.
Saying "Navigate the Internet" will open Chromium Edge and provide a list with numbers and words needed to use the browser effectively.
Saying the numeral '1' prompts Lady A to read the description, “Commands to browse the Internet and use tools like bookmarks and history.”
The commands in this menu are designed to help you use ‘Lady A’ easily.
‘Thank You ACCESS’ puts the Lady on pause from any menu; a good idea when you’re talking to someone.
She responds with “I am paused.”
‘Hello ACCESS’ wakes the lady up in the same menu where she was paused.
She responds with “I am here and ready to rock ‘n roll.”
Help is a command available in any menu.
Menu Home loads the Main Menu.
Previous Menu takes you back one menu.
Close Menu closes the current menu.
Search Menus Use key words to find a specific command for a task.
ACCESS Read Tells Lady A to read the current menu again.
Menu Number Say the number instead of the works to hear a description of the menu.
Drum roll, please.
