Yeah...I suppose so. That's just remote sighted assistance...*grins*...but oh well. You gotta do what you gotta do. And while people have been recommending other encryptions in this thread, the OP stated that his employer leaves him no choice in that matter.

You could also use something like Be My Eyes's Microsoft support option, to contact Microsoft each time you boot. Assuming you have a smartphone.
I wonder how many of those calls people would have to make before MS would devote some time to making that interface somewhat more accessible.
Likely wishful thinking.

You wouldn't have to show them the password, just get them to tell you when the prompt is on screen, put down the phone to type it in, and if it fails they can tell you that.
