Re: windows program for creating a recovery drive is not fully accessible

Well, I had to do the same thing on Thursday.
You are correct that NVDA reads the beginning of the recovery wizard.
You can accessibly get to the recovery wizard and go through the steps to point where you start the recovery process thereafter, NVDA only reads the Cancel button. Using Objective Nav or any other methods does not read anything on the screen. Even when dialogs come up, they are not read.
When doing my recovery disk, I was asked to insert a 16GB memory stick which I did but, this was insufficient. I got an error and had to get sighted assistance to realise that a dialog was on the screen.
Once I ran through the process once more, I inserted a 32 GB memory stick, the process completed but, NVDA did not read the success message and I had to use object nav to eventually find the “finish” button to dismiss the dialog. This is not accessible.

Subject: [nvda] windows program for creating a recovery drive is not fully accessible
I decided I needed to create a fresh recovery drive. I discovered that NVDA speaks the buttons but nothing else. Has anyone else seen this? Is this an NVDA issue or a windows system issue?
