Use NVDA instead of Narrator to install Windows 10

I want to be able to use NVDA during Windows 10 Installation because Narrator is sometimes lagging or doesn't read all Information that's being displayed on the Screen.

        The point is that people don't know how to use Narrator and it is too far from Jaws and NVDA to be useful. Jaws and NVDA have a particular feel and people spend years learning how to effectively work with this type of screen reader. Narrator uses something completely different and the user experience is terrible. If you wish to really use Narrator rather than NVDA, please test on at least 30 screen reader users and implement the feedback or get rid of Narrator altogether. No one uses it. It is not recommended for accessibility testing. Government institutions can't use it because it doesn't work well enough for people to use it to work. Please scrap Narrator and use NVDA, or spend another $5000000 to really make Narrator a screen reader.

        Some Times in Windows 10 Narrator is slow and says only "Tab" when i try to tab around the Screen in some Windows on the Desktop. NVDA doesn't have this Issue.

        Narrator doesn't read the Information that when you have already activated Windows 10 you click skip. Also i can't change the Language of the Windows Setup.

        Hello,

        Thank you for your feedback. We would like to learn more about the challenges you are experiencing with Narrator. At what points is the narrator lagging during the installation? On which pages of the installation is the Narrator not reading what is being displayed on the screen?

        Sincerely,

        The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk team.
