All suggestions are great!

No one has mentioned that if you are using Windows 10 you can hold down Control + Window Key and press Enter to bring up Narrator which will then give you speech access to your computer to get to your volume control and un-mute your sound.

just a trick,
if you feel that, the volume got muted, open the run dialogue and type
the command, "sndvol" and press enter and wait for 2 to 3 seconds.
now, the volume tray opens, just press the home key. the volume will
be raized.
note: in this process, do not press any key other than the home key
once the volume tray opens. if you press tab or shift tab, there might
be a chances of shifting your focus.

Jaws key + Escape sounds a lot easier and less problematic than restarting
the computer. If a bunch of applications are open the computer may not even

application and if there is no sound you'd just sit there and wait not
knowing what's going on.

Hi, Jed. Another way besides INSERT plus ESCAPE to unmute JAWS is simply to
restart the computer. When JAWS comes up, if the computer has been muted, or
the volume has been turned down all the way, JAWS will automatically unmute
the computer, and turn up the volume enough so that you may hear how to get
to the volume and raise it further. It is not necessary in this instance to
use JAWS key and ESCAPE to unmute. It happens automatically when JAWS

On my HP laptop, its f6 by itself.
I'm constantly muting my sound, including jaws, by accident.
So, I wish I could change this keystroke.
Does anyone know of an easy, accessible way to do this?
I have a feeling it'll help both of us.

Hey guys,
OK, just had a major problem. I have no idea how i did it.
Fortunately someone was able to help me out of it, but i muted my
system volume. Curious, when this happens, what is the keystroke to
hit with the latest jaws to unmute everything?
