You may need to hit alt-super-s after you start fedora for the first 
time whether or not fedora comes up speaking at all and this may have to 
be done each time you boot fedora too.

> Hi all. After using Windows for a month, after using Linux for two months, I've noticed that everything that I do on Windows, I could do on Windows, and with the Braille note Touch, I can get the Exchange emails from the training center I'm attending, which mainly uses Windows. So, while in Windows, I burned a USB drive with the latest Fedora image, using Rufus, making it bootable. So, The installation went well, but after the computer restarted, and the flash drive was taken out, no system came up. I've never seen that happen before, and Googling didn't give any answers, so I'm stuck between Vinux, and Arch. Vinux being okay I suppose, but out of date, and Arch being hard for me to install, without scripts although the ones I know of are broken, but Arch is what I like, because it has anything I ask of it. So I tried installing Fedora a few more times, formatting the drive, but no luck. Then I accidentally pulled the flash drive out of the USB drive for a moment, and when 
 I pushed

The last time I tried the instructions for installing Arch, I got stuck on setting the clock and such, because the results I got were not the results on the ge, so I'm just not sure what to do.
