Add Narrator support in the Windows Advanced Startup menu.
When accessing the Advanced Startup menu, Narrator cannot be used. This is the menu you access from settings>update&Security>Recovery that allows you to do things like boot from a disk, access system image backup, etc. When I access this menu, I receive no speech feedback. Pressing Control+Windows+Enter does nothing. If I press it too many times, the computer reboots into Windows again. This is another one of those essential features that needs to be completed ASAP! As someone planning to enter the IT field, this is essential if I want to independently troubleshoot Windows, boot from external drives, etc. Ideally, I'd love to see this capability added by March of 2018. If not, it should be included in the update scheduled for October at the latest. I can't express just how happy I am that the Windows installer finally supports Narrator. This is another step in making Windows troubleshooting more accessible for those with low or no vision.
Yeah that is really unfortunate. especially that if I land in an actual winre it works. I am not even sure if it's not the case that narrator is actually there but it cannot be started, as I remember managing to launch it few times by accident.
Are there any updates on this issue? This is really important and I still cannot find this in the October 2018 update. Please add this very soon.
I have reported this a number of times, Narrator used to work on this screen before creators update but all I get back is we know about it and nothing gets done. Unfortunately most blind users will only find out this doesn't work until they start having trouble with their pcs and by that time it will be too late to complain.
Stop on screen keyboard from popping up all the time?
Thank you for your suggestion. We will pass this on to the product team. We are happy to hear you like the changes made in the most recent update regarding Narrator working with the installer.
