Re: I finally got NVDA to work on the Windows log on screen


A note from the moderator:
The list doesn't want a lot of me too messages.  If people have specific features they like about NVDA or specific uses where they consider it better than other screen-readers or specific things they don't like or would like improved, those might lead to good discussion or be informative for users.  But please don't sendd a lot of one sentence messages saying you like NVDA or similar messages with no content that adds to knowledge or to meaningful discussion.
Presumably, people are on this list because they either very much like NVDA, prefer it, or are learning about it.  But most people wouldn't be on the list if they disliked it.

Hi. I’m from the US, and live in Connecticut, hoping to move out of there someday. I’m totally blind, though I used to have some usable vision. I love NVDA. How about you?

Hi Molly welcome to the list.

Just wondering where are you from and are you totally blind or do you have some vision?

Hey guys, Molly here again.

I posted earlier about not being able to log in to Windows using NVDA. Well today when I turned on my tablet, it announced the time and date as usual. However, since I for some reason can’t use the touchscreen on the log on screen (except when Narrator is running(, I figured I’d hit the escape key just to see what would happen. Wouldn’t you know it, it brought me to the pin edit box. After typing in my pin, NVDA immediately turned on… I guess I should have tried this last week. Jeez. I feel so dumb. Anyway, the point is I can now log in without any issues.
