Re: accessible password generators
So far I found 1Password less than accessible when it came to the getting started part. I was able to sign up for a trial of their family plan no problem, but once I had done this and logged in on myt laptop using Chrome I saw on the site that in order to set up the Windows app and other apps or log in on other computers you had to download what they called their emergency kit which contains a secret key you need for this. No matter what I tried I could not do so, then I asked one of my sighted employees and he said when you click on this link a pop-up appears with a download button. Once he clicked it a PDF downloaded in a second which contained the information needed.
I will continue to give 1Password a good try for the next 4 weeks and hope I find it will work better now that it’s set up.

Thank you Gerry.
My problem is that I do have an account on a site, but no 1password record yet.
Instead of having to type one in from scratch, how can I just go to a site, login and have 1password remember my existing login info?

I have found very few sites where it would not work.
Another thing you can do is start logging into a website. When you get to the password field, assuming 1Password is not open already, go to the system tray and arrow down to 1Password. Hit enter.
You should be given the option to generate a password.
It generates it and puts it on the clipboard.
You could then manually create a login record in 1Password and include the new password.

Ideally I'd use iOS and Windows/Chrome.
So far I only tried it on Windows, maybe I did go to sites which didn't work with 1password? I did not get any popup once I pressed login. Let me try with a few more sites.
