Vocal Eyes Does Not Read Screen in MS-DOS Session


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows versions 3.1, 3.11


When the Vocal Eyes program by GW Micro is loaded before you start Microsoft Windows, the screen speech option does not operate in an MS-DOS session.


Vocal Eyes is a product developed by GW Micro for visually impaired computer users. The purpose of the product is to "read" the MS-DOS screen for the user. Vocal Eyes also includes a keyboard key speech function. When keys on the keyboard are pressed, their values are spoken. This part of the Vocal Eyes program still functions properly under Windows 3.1.

The program does work with MS-DOS-based applications under Windows if the Vocal Eyes program is loaded after you choose the MS-DOS Prompt icon.


GW Micro is researching the problem. For more information, please contact GW Micro.

The product Vocal Eyes is manufactured by a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
