Re: shut down sound for windows 10


you're right. and in addition, why do they disable some sounds even
though the sounds are still there?

But even with JAWS 2018, there is still no shutdown sound in Windows 10.
The way I see it, if MS has decided to eliminate the shutdown 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.

Although I loved the shutdown sound, and see why it can be useful,
even on a laptop there are easy ways to tell if a computer is shut down
or not. Just place your hand near the fan exit vent and you will feel
the stream of air, which is usually significantly warmer than any room
temperature, cease flowing upon complete shutdown, as the fans are the
last thing to shut down.

The shutdown sound is a triviality in the world of accessibility.
Pick your battles.
