moderated Re: using a pc with a fingerprint/faced reader?


Please don’t take offense. since you don’t use face ID, you should not give advice such as this. I use it on my Surface Pro7 and it is almost 100% accurate. In the case that it might not work the first time, you set up a pin number to enter much like you would use a passcode on an IPhone.
Actually, I find it much better than face ID on the phone. And it works very well in low light.

Congratulations on the new laptop. I do not know about face ID and the response of Jaws to it.  I would not use it since it would possibly be less reliable depending on the lighting conditions and other factors.

Good morning,


I just purchased a new laptop.


It’s a Lenovo IdeaPad & has both touch& face ID.


When I got to the point during setup, where it asked me to scan my finger, for touch ID, narrator didn’t say anything, so I needed sighted assistance.

Butt when its ready for me to login, Jaws says, “scan your finger on the fingerprint reader.”


Would it do the same with face ID?
