Re: JAWS announcing Touch keyboard

I do have a touch screen laptop. I do not knowingly have the onscreen keyboard turned on. I’ll try to investigate. With my bit of vision, I have never noticed it, but who knows!

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
