    Do you get that on the log-in screen? I get that sometimes.

    What I do when that happens is to press the button in the bottom left corner
    and select the bottom item, and press OK. Then I press the button again and
    deselect the item and press OK. Seems to work fine after that, and you can
    type the password without the narrator speaking again.

    I put it down to some weird bug.

    Does the customer happen to have a version of MS Office installed that by
    default installed the Office Toolbar. I believe Office XP was the last
    version of Office that included it and installed by default. If yes, you
    can turn off Narrator in the Office Toolbar.

    Hello Drnick,

    Narrator might be set to automatically start on the logon page. If you don't
    need Narrator at the logon page, here is something you can try: go to
    Start -> Control Panel -> Ease of Access -> Ease of Access Center, and then,
    in the left pane, click Change Aadministrative settings. Under System
    Administrator settings, clear the Apply all settings to the logon desktop
    checkbox, and then click Save.

    I hope this helps you with your problem.

    That doesn't work on mine. None of the above does. The box in ease of access is already unchecked.
