[AI] is BIOS accessable

I have heard of a motherboard having a talking BIOS. Unfortunately, I do not
remember its name. Generally speaking, there is no way to access the BIOS
since it loathes before the operating system. No screen reader can work in
this environment unless it is specially designed to work with the BIOS.

In older computers, there used to be software utilities that accessed the
BIOS. As far as I know, such utilities no longer exist.

Hello list members
I want to know is BIOS accessible ? Some of the settings are to be made
through BIOS example setting booting device priority . To carry out these
work I have to take help of a sighted person. Since JAWS does not speak in
BIOS, is there any way out. Is there any alternate through which I can
access BIOS independently. Do let me know.
