You don't need it on, if you're an experienced JAWS user, because you type, then check. If JAWS loses focus, it will speak the newly activated window usually. It never loses focus completely when you're in an app in my experience.

All the best

I would think it would be helpful to leave the announcement on because, say, you're typing away on a reply to an email and suddenly JAWS looses focus on the window where you're typing a reply. if the announcement is turned off, much of what you typed might not make it into the reply (or whatever you're doing). apply a similar situation to typing a letter in Word or a note in Notepad, etc.

Hi Dan!

I have unactivatated in the verbosity menue the button which gives out that message, and everything seems to be fine.

This system is only a few months old.

This should not occur at start up. Sometimes JAWS loses focus after working with one window and shifting to another but at start up is unusual in my opinion unless you have older system or programs that take long time to load. Also, JAWS is good at losing focus while working.
