JAWS announcing Touch keyboard

Van Lant, Robin

Hi all,

I’m running Windows 10 on my laptop with JAWS 2018.  I have it set to require a password to login.  If I leave my computer and come back later to type in my password, I hear a sound effect kind of like an ascending tone on a slide whistle and a voice says “Touch keyboard”.  I also notice that the voice I’m hearing on parts of the login screen are different from the normal voice I use.  All reverts to normal as I am loaded into my user profile of Windows.


What does JAWS mean by “Touch keyboard” and the sound effect?   Any idea why the voice changes?  Robin
