Cecropia64, I agree. if it's trivial to do, why can't MS do it?

Subject: shut down sound for windows 10

It's not like they have to change the program or add any major increase
in size or anything.  Just put the sounds back where they used to be. I,
personally, want to make my own choices and want the sounds there. If I
choose to disable them, it's my own choice.  But I'd like to have a
choice to make and not have someone else do the choice making for me.

But even with JAWS 2018, there is still no shutdown sound in Windows

sound, then it might aswell eliminate all system sounds.  What’s the
point of keeping some sounds while eliminating others?

jaws version 16. If you're using jaws 2018 then you should be able to
hear all of your system sounds with jaws. This doesn't mean that jaws
16 will not work with this latest update of windows 10. It actually does.
