Moderated Re: JAWS Won't Read Windows 10 Settings Window

Hey TJ!
By the way, I know somebody named TJ. He was a classmate of mine in Audio Engineering back in 2009 at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon. I use both of those commands you mentioned. JAWS reads the Control Panel just fine, but it's the new fangled Settings window that JAWS can't seem to read. Why did Microsoft have to switch out the Control Panel for something that JAWS can't read? Same thing with the Start Menu.

Hi Annabelle,

How are you accessing the setting options?

For instance, I usually use the:

windows key + I

to access the settings options, however I still use the control panel every now and then.

It was reading them fine before Windows started updating.

Regardless of these issues, you really need to let Windows 10 update.  Any version of Windows that is under Windows as a Service, that is 10 and 11 for sure, must be allowed to update.

The 22H2 feature update was quite trivial.  While it may have triggered a latent problem, it almost certainly didn't cause it, and your having done a "nuke and pave" by clean reinstalling Windows 10 means it's an ideal time to update with the cleanest baseline possible.

It’s not lack of contact with the world off campus that leads to the liberal views common in academia — it’s being trained to think critically and practicing this craft daily as we look at the world around us that makes us the libs conservatives so dislike.
