Re: JAWS not speaking on Windows 10 logon screen

Hi, Dan.
Do you have to unload JFW, then use the shortcut to load it again? I
am running JFW17 and have to use Seeing AI to see what is happening.
JFW doesn't start speaking till the desktop is loaded.

From what I can tell, JFW only will give tech support for the current
version. I e-mailed them regarding an issue I have with Word 2016 and
JFW17 and was told they don't support JFW17, and that I should get the
latest version of JFW. So I haven't contacted them to address my JFW
logon issues with Win10.

Yes, when this occurs, which is often, I use my shortcut keys to get JAWS
speak and JAWS then speaks the LogOn screen information. Do you have an HP
machine? VFO has never given me any great assistance in the matter. Even
if I hit any key JAWS will not speak until I use the shortcut method. Like
you, JAWS is set to start at logon.

I posted yesterday about a problem I was having whereby JAWS wouldn't
speaking on the lock screen. However, JAWS did speak when I pressed any
to dismiss the lock screen and bring up the password field.

I have since disabled the lock screen, but JAWS doesn't speak at all on the
logon screen now regardless of how long I leave it. JAWS does speak when I
enter the password and the desktop comes up. I have checked, and JAWS is
set to load at the logon screen.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

HP Spectre laptop, Windows 10 latest version, JAWS 2019 Beta.

Thanks a lot,
