Agreed. The entire thing is so petty. If you want to know if your computer is on or off, do like I have done. Arrow up or down, if it makes a screen reader sound, it is on, if nothing happens, either your computer is off or someone has shut off the sound. For those who bitch about M S, if you don't like it, get a MAC. Time for the little kitties to go to bed and let the adults worry about the important things.

Guess that is what I was thinking as well. I understand all the input on the subject. I guess I just don't understand all the hoopla. What is the big deal? None as far as I can tell. But opinions are vast and everyone has one. Some are more in depth than others. Not everyone will be happy with all when it comes to accessibility. I guess I wish it was more uniform across the board.

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
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?

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.
