Re: i'm new to this list and have a strange issue with NVDA on the windows log on screen
Hello Molly and welcome to the NVDA list,
This might depend on your actual startup options. When full disk encryption is enabled on a computer, then the operating system is not fully running when the user name is being prompted for. I am more familiar with this on Macintosh computers, but I expect the same could be happening on Windows. So, even though a sighted person sees a login screen, not all the features available in the OS can be accessed until the startup disk key is enabled.
To test this, try logging out of your system and seeing if NVDA then prompts you for login credentials.
