Window-Eyes version 2.1
Installing Window-Eyes 2.1
Window-Eyes must be installed using the INSTALL program provided.
This is run from DOS, not from Windows. If you like, run your DOS
screen reader so that the installation program speaks.
Please make sure when selecting set files to ONLY select the version of the
application you plan on using. Do not select more than one version of a SET
file. For example, don't select Word 7 sets and Word 8 sets. Only select
one version of the same application and make sure the version matches
the application you are using.
If, after completing the Window-Eyes installation, you copy old
set files into your Window-Eyes directory (as you might if someone
has shared set files with you), you'll need to run the WEFIXSET
program supplied with Window-Eyes 2.1. Remember, this is only
necessary if you have manually copied old set files into your
WINEYES directory after installing the 2.1 upgrade. If you have
accepted the default drive and directory names for Window-Eyes
during the installation, type the following to bring old-version
set files up to date:
For your convenience, the entire 2.1 manual has been supplied on
disk. Each section can be found in its own standard ASCII text
file. The following files constitute the entire manual:
If you would like a Braille manual, contact PC Place in Sacramento,
California, USA for prices and shipping information. Their phone

General notes for Window-Eyes 2.1:
For the best performance with Window-Eyes we recommend that you use
256 colors and also that you use the Windows Standard color scheme.
Our graphic definitions depend on this to function correctly. We
also recommend that you use a resolution of 800 x 600 or better
yet, 1024 x 768 for best performance.
*** Set Files and Graphics Dictionaries:
We've added many new set files and dictionaries to Window-Eyes 2.1
and are adding more all the time. If you have a modem, check the
bulletin board or FTP site from time to time to see if we've added
files for any of your Windows applications. Be sure you have
Window-Eyes 2.1, since the format of the set files has changed with
the upgrade and older versions of Window-Eyes can't read new set
files. If you don't have a modem, give us a call.
