moderated Re: Is bitlocker accessible with JAWS

Van Lant, Robin

We also use bitlocker and it loads before JAWS, so it can be a bit tricky if you don’t have light perception.   I can see when the screen is dark because it’s just starting up with the HP logo, then I can see when the screen is filled with a light color, which means I can enter my Bitlocker password.  A hint I was given and love is to use a numeric only password for bitlocker so you are not stuck if caps lock is on or off.  I use a childhood phone number so all I’m entering is the numbers on the number row.

At work we use Bitlocker too.

It starts before the login-screen appears.

I have to type my pincode with blind-typing but it works for me.


Before that we have used RSA Tokens and that is more a challenge.

Yes, as long as it doesn’t prompt for a password while loading the operating system, which it shouldn’t if your machine has Trusted Platform Module (TPM) hardware. If there’s no TPM, I’m not sure what BitLocker does – it may ask for a password, and if so, this would probably happen before JAWS starts.


I’ve used it successfully with JAWS on laptops that have TPM modules.

Can anyone advise if Bitlock encryption is accessible with JAWS on a windows 10 system?
