How can I give my screen reader administrative access?

Episode 1383 (1:49:41)

Joseph from Massachusetts

Joseph is blind and he uses a screen reader. He wants to customize his Windows sounds, but he is having trouble doing it. Leo says to create day to day limited/standard user accounts to run. If his screen reader needs an administrator level, then that's OK.

How can he give administrator privileges to his screen reader? Leo says that for security reasons, he'll have to verify he's choosing to give that access as an administrator. This prevents automatic acceptance. Leo recommends contacting Microsoft support and ask to speak to the Accessibility department. Microsoft treats accessibiilty as a high priority so they'll help him.
