Re: Minor thing — NVDA and Windows Hello

I wouldn't assume it’s a bug. Screen-readers function in complex environments and at times things happen that cause minor anomalies that don't matter. I suspect in this case, that the screen-reader is repeating because of something visual that is occurring such as the messages flashing on screen. It would be interesting to have a sighted person look at the screen and see if something that can be seen is causing the repeated behavior.

Subject: [nvda] Minor thing — NVDA and Windows Hello

My work laptop is running Windows 10 Pro and has Windows Hello enabled for face recognition at the logon screen. There are three messages spoken aloud as the system attempts to authenticate you: ”looking for you,” ”making sure it’s you” and ”hello (username).” NVDA repeats each of these three phrases exactly 3 times. Not a big deal and certainly doesn’t impede functionality, but obviously a bug so I thought I would share.
