Re: Strange behavior of NVDA and Windows 10 at machine startup

Hi Group,

I got in late on this topic, so I didn't closely examine all the posts. However, I believe you can set up different profiles for different users beginning way back in Windows XP wherein the other users to your system can log in with their own user name and password and then speech will be automatically shut down.  The only speech they would hear would be the pre-log-in screen chatter. Once they log in, the speech would be disabled. If the sighted folks can't bear even that brief inconvenience, then tell them to shut up and buy their own equipment.

honestly if they can't deal with speech at log on they can just not
use my stuff. It's not that big of a deal.

No one wants that to have speech on login or anything.

In fact when I have speech running even at home or on another computer,
People get annoyed because they want me to close it, or say, I had to
reset the computer because it was talking to me so sightlings don't
appreciate blindy software running on their system at any time so having
it on login, just not a real option if its shared.

I also find it strange that the NVDA desktop copy seems to start
before I'm logged in.

Well, if you want to use it on the Windows login screen, it must start
before you (or anyone) is logged in.  Every screen reader I know of
has the option to do this, and it is an exception behavior, as most
programs don't have the capability.

It can, of course, be toggled off in settings if you inadvertently
turned it on.
