    Default W-10 Narrator

    My brother sent me this.

    Seems to be handy at times:

    )If you or friends are visually impaired - or live through Typonese like I do, there is a program in Windows 10 called 'Narrator'.
    When activated it will tell your what function or site you are in, and will narrate your keystrokes. It can be annoying in chat, but is easy to shut off, too
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    I just bought a Chromebook laptop, just for surfing the web , posting here that kind of thing, and it has a similar option in the accessibility options. Just turn it on and it pretty much reads every keystroke as well as telling you what web page you are on etc etc, I find it annoying myself. I accidentally turned it on and it took me awhile to figure out how to turn it off. But once you know how it is easy.

    I have a friend in another site who is functionally blind. It is a great help to her.
