Re: Problem with Bitlocker

I would report this.
I have the same problem when unlocking an encrypted thumb drive.
Narrator or NVDA will do the trick but JAWS is useless on this task.
I reported my problem and encourage you to do the same.

I think it only happens under Windows 10. I haven't found a way to get around
this using JAWS yet.

Hmmm... I have bitlocker for my hard drive at work and do not have
focus issues, but maybe it's different for just a partition.

Hi all,
does anybody know if it is possible to unlock a Bitlocker partition
with JAWS 2018? Whenever I want to open such a partition the focus
jumps into the password field for a moment but immediately jumps to
another element of the screen. It seems to be impossible to enter a
password there so I have to use NVDA or Narrator to do this right now.

Best regards
