Do you mean the ease of access settings panel of the
windows settings app is opening at login?
I've experienced it too. It's like Windows is presenting me with all of the
built-in accessibility options for me to select from, before logging into
Windows. Nice for those who don't know about them. Not so great for those of
us who do.
The problem is that I've already chose NVDA as the accessibility option to
be use at startup, and having to navigate out of this screen to reach the
screen for inputting my pin is a pain.
Chris, it is not so. Firstly, I don't hear Narrator speaking and in such
a case I should, because it uses a different voice from NVDA. Secondly, I
don't see the Narrator Cursor on the screen and with my settings I should,
if Narrator is running. Thirdly, I checked in Control Panel -> Ease of
access -> Change sign-in settings and Narrator there is not set to run
neither on the lock screen, nor after I sign in.
Part of the described in my first message behavior (the one about
displaying user information on the lock screen) might be considered as
normal, specially if Microsoft have done some changes as to how things load
after a "Fast Boot". But I don't think displaying the "Ease of access" menu
without me invoking it manually could be considered a normal behavior. And
some more food for thought: shouldn't the user's things and information be
loaded after he signs in and not before that (?).
I could, and probably will, contact Microsoft about this, but firstly I
wanted to ask if I'm the only one experiencing this. I don't think so,
because I've experienced it in my virtual machine with Windows 10 Insider
Preview, but I've attributed it to the slowness of the virtual machine.
Apparently that is not the case.
I've temporarily disabled "Fast Boot" and will test how things go.

It sounds like you have both narrator and nvda to start
on the login screen, check settings in both narrator and
As for the other stuff you can change them in settings
> personalization > lock screen
So nothing unusual at all really 😃
I've noticed this strange behavior after the update of Windows 10 to
version 1803. The behavior is the following. When the machine starts and
Windows 10 loads, it gets to the lock screen as it should. Initially it
all looks normal, but only for a while. Moments after that, the lock
screen displays not only the time and date as it normally does, but
user-specific information as well (e.g. weather forecast, upcoming alarms,
etc.). Not only that, but the NVDA startup sound is heard, as if the
desktop copy of NVDA is loaded, even though it should load only when the
specific user signs in. I can't tell for sure if the desktop copy of NVDA
loads, because my NVDA settings for the desktop and secure screen copies
of it are the same. On top of that, the "Ease of access" menu appears and
NVDA starts reading its menu items one by one. This happens when I power
up the machine with "Fast Boot" enabled. I haven't tried with "Fast Boot"
disabled, but when I restart the machine, the behavior described above
does not occur. So, it must be related to "Fast Boot" somehow. And this
did not occur before the update to version 1803 of Windows 10.
Has anyone else experienced the behavior described above? Have you
found any solutions besides turning off "Fast Boot"? Turning off "Fast
Boot" is also a solution, but I'd prefer to keep it on if possible.
