Hi, Hareth. When you open Quick Assist, there is a window which opens first, that tells you there is an update to Quick Assist. However, this is not actually true. There is a problem with the app. Try tabbing to the button that says, Already installed it, open. If you click that, a new window will open which you cannot tab through. This is the window in which you press Space Bar, followed by E for Edit. You can then put in your code. I think you were trying to find the edit field in the wrong Quick Assist Window, the Update Window. You first must open Quick Assist from this window, before the Narrator steps will work.

Hi,
Did you have any luck using it that way?
Because it doesn't work with me.
I've tried it a few days back, and after I read your e-mail gave it
another shot, no go.
BTW, checked if there is an update for the quick assist, already have
the latest one.
both narrator's scan modes off and on gives "no next edit, no previous
edit" bla bla with the "e" and "shift plus e"

I just spoke with Microsoft, and for now, there is another temporary
solution to not being able to use the Quick Assist app with a screen
reader.
They told me that, with Narrator, it is usable with the following
instructions:

1. Quit whichever screen reader you have running, unless your screen reader
is Narrator.
2. Start Narrator with CONTROL plus WIN Key plus ENTER, unless Narrator is
already running.
3. Open Quick Assist with CONTROL plus Win Key plus Q
4. While holding down the Narrator Command Key (usually CAPSLOCK), press
the
Space Bar to start Scan Mode.
5. Press the letter E to navigate to the edit box where you would enter
your
code.
6. Press the Space Bar to enter forms mode.
7. Enter the code, and proceed as usual.
