Re: JAWS not speaking on Windows 10 logon screen

I think what is going on here is that JAWS is loading before the sound driver.


Not sure there’s a lot that VFO can do about this easily, because it only happens on certain machines.


All the best

Yes, when this occurs, which is often, I use my shortcut keys to get JAWS to 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 key 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,
