    The screenshots do not help your blind student but I will add them here just to be sure. Here we go, it's a pleasant challenge to try to reply in a way which could also be possible to understand by someone unable to see, with a help of a screen reader .

    You need to download and install Windows Phone 8.1 emulators from Windows Dev Center: https://dev.windows.com/en-US/downloads. Scroll down the page a bit, you'll find the correct download links at left under the title Other download options in section Windows Phone 8.1 Emulators.

    You need to have any edition of Visual Studio installed and Hyper-V enabled and set up with a working external virtual switch (ask if you need help in this) before installing the emulators.

    When the emulators are installed you can see only one of them in Hyper-V, the basic WVGA 4 inch 512 MB emulator. The rest of them will be added to Hyper-V as soon as you use them to debug your application in Visual Studio.

    The emulators will also add an internal network switch to your Hyper-V setup, Debugging an application in an emulator will require both the external switch and this internal switch added by emulator installation.

    Now start the Visual Studio. When you are ready to debug, in other words ready to build and deploy the app to the emulator and run it, select any of the Windows Phone emulators from the list in the toolbar under the menu bar. Let the CPU selection be the default Any CPU. By default the basic WVGA 4 inch 512 MB emulator is selected, being roughly the same than the smallest Lumia 500-series phones. When you have selected your emulator press F5 to start debugging, alternatively click the small green arrowhead in front of the emulator name or open the Debug menu and select Start Debugging. Stop debugging with SHIFT + F5, from Debug menu selecting Stop Debugging, or by closing the emulator.

    Click image for larger version

    Notice that starting the emulator first time can take a long time, even up to three or four minutes depending on your hardware before the emulator has fully booted and you can see Visual Studio starting to deploy your application.

    That's it for now, please ask if you need more information.

    About enabling virtualization in BIOS, I am sorry but cannot help you there. Each manufacturer has a bit different BIOS. We might get some help for you in this matter if we knew the exact BIOS version. Please try to tell as much as you can, at least the make and model of your PC if it is a standard PC bought from a store, and the make and the model of the motherboard if it is self assembled.

    About Hyper-V, check these two tutorials, they might be too difficult to read using a screen reader and contain a lot of screenshots which will not help you. Just ask for a clarification if there's something you don't understand in them:


    Don't you worry about the pronunciation of my name . It's written K, A, R, I and is a typical name in Finland where I come from. Both the K and the R are pronounced very hard, each letter pronounced short.
