Re: Question: NVDA Starts Differently with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update

First, did you copy your saved settings to the log-on screen?

Second, it sounds as if the ease of access menu may have gotten triggered. Have you tried to do an alt+tab to see if that is running? Have you gone into the access settings to see if anything is set to start at log-on?

I have just rejoined this list and my guess is that this question may have already been discussed.

After updating to the April 2018 Windows 10 update I noticed two things.

1. NVDA seems to fully start with my default synthesizer of Acapela, even on the login screen prior to the desktop being loaded. In the past, it would default to Espeak and would then restart after entering my Pin. I am assuming this is a deliberate change? Is this the case for other screen readers, as well?

2. Before I press ctrl-alt-del to enter my pin at startup I am now hearing information about various, pre-installed accessibility tools, such as a description of Narrator, Magnifier, etc. How is this screen triggered and is there a way to suppress it?
