Hi Richard,

 

You will probably have to have a sighted person to turn your computer on for you.

This was in 2015.

Indeed, I am duly concerned about this too.  However, it is a requirement of the employer to have such on a home PC used for remote work (HIPAA).  Relatedly, how does BitLocker impact making a Windows Image backup; using the legacy Windows method?

All I'll say about this, and it's not accessibility related, is think long and hard about whether you really want or need full drive encryption.  Most of us don't, particularly for our personal computers.

As a repair tech I have seen more incidents where everything was lost and unrecoverable because of "encryption gone wrong" than I care to talk about.  And I'm not talking about ransomware encryption, but intentional drive encryption.  It can be a major stumbling block if recovery is needed.  It can also be an issue if it "burps" in any way.

Give due consideration to whether this is something needed or not.

I do not understand why some seek to separate a person from their actions.  The self is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body.  What you do and say is the clearest indicator of who you are.
