That may be what is supposed to occur, but time after time it goes mute and does not use the built in secure screen reader. Its not just that its opened behind either, even alt tabbing will not reveal it. I guess putting narrator on before an install may work, I've never tried it. Its my feeling that in some circumstances the cut down bit of nvda which is supposed to run in this situation cannot read the screen unless its actually in focus and for some reason alt tabbing never actually achieves this, at least from my experience.

Ah fantastic - ignore the email I just sent then :)

Re the dialog not reading properly - it should read ok, however it uses a
different NVDA profile. To have it read in the voice you prefer:
1) Setup NVDA as you like (synthesizer, rate, etc)
2) Press NVDA+CONTROL+C to save changes.
3) Press NVDA+CONTROL+G to open the general settings.
4) Press TAB until the focus is on the "Use currently saved settings on the
logon and other secure screens" button
5) Press SPACEBAR or ENTER to activate the button.
6) If you have any add-ons, a dialog appears warning that these can be a
security risk (not that there is a risk from any specific add-ons, just a
general warning). Press ENTER to accept this.
7) A UAC dialog appears. press ALT+Y accept the prompt.

After trying again, I was able to install the update successfully. After
the update downloaded, there was another sound which I hadn’t heard before.
I hit Alt-Yon spec and I installed and restarted successfully. In the
future, it would be very helpful if this dialog would read properly.
