I have it turned on this laptop when I got it.
Don't have to use any passwords. You setup your Microsoft account
and local. Then you get win10 startup with your choice of pin,
face with ir camera, and finger print. You can turn all that off
also to log in how you like.
now here comes the problem. You need the bitlocker key if going
to do any resets or restoring from any backups. They are locked to
your Microsoft account. That key will let you back in that drive
or anyother drive you have bitlocked..

Interesting. When you say “power on,” does
that mean 1) from a restart a.k.a. “soft boot” or 2) an actual
cold start by pressing the power button a.k.a. “hard boot” -
I last used
bitLocker in 2015. At that time, bitLocker would ask the
sighted for a power on password. This dialog was completely
inaccessible to the blind. After about 30 seconds, I would
enter my bitLocker power-on password and hope that the dialog
box was open. (Note if the computer was doing updates, then
this strategy would fail.) If I entered an incorrect password,
the resulting error dialog was also in accessible. After
waiting ten minutes or so, if the computer had not reached the
Microsoft account login keyword, I would reboot the machine
and try again. Usually I would find a kind sighted person to
help me turn on my computer. I had to get a sighted person to
turn on my computer about 50% of the time. Microsoft said
that they could not make the Bit Locker dialog accessible
because Bit Locker runs early in the power-on cycle.
bitLocker was my employer’s requirement.
your hard drive and is probably a good idea.
I would be
interested if there has been any bitLocker progress since
I have a PC
running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and NVDA 2020.4. Soon, I will
turn-on BitLocker. Will doing so trigger any accessibility
