A tedious challenge for me: Guessing when there is no speech

This does not happen very often but whenever either my computer decides to play tricks on me or my screen-reading technology decides to take a break, this is what happens.

I am left stranded with no voice output to tell me what is on the screen and it is the same when I type. I do not hear what I am typing.  So, when this happens I have to guess or rather make some educated guesses in order to get things back on track.

How do I deal with this?  If the offender is the computer I would shut down my computer and start all over again. If it is my screen-reading technology I would need to uninstall and install once more.

I have three screen-reading pieces of software installed on each of my computers and this certainly helps me to troubleshoot.  Most of the time the reasons for all of this are not too difficult for me to solve.
