Re: JAWS Not Starting At Logon Screen Windows 7 Pro

Hi Brian

Michelle Stevens here, 

Although I am a new jaws user. I wonder if you have checked start jaws at logon which is different to starting jaws after logon. Think there are two check boxes. I set mine through basics and arrowed down. 

I maybe wrong because am still new to this programme. Apolagies if I am wrong.

Hi Everyone,


Someone at my work doesn’t hear JAWS at the logon screen in Windows 7 Pro.  She logged out successfully yesterday.  However, when she went to login today, there was no speech.  The cursor was in the password field when I sat down at her computer.  Once I logged her in, JAWS started up.  I checked the automatic settings for JAWS, and it is set to “Automatically start JAWS at the Logon Screen.”  She is using the latest build of JAWS 17 64-bit.  Any ideas as to why JAWS wasn’t running?


Thanks for your help,
