moderated Re: JAWS Not Reading Controls
I would first check that JAWS is set to “use on the lock screen”. Otherwise, when the UAC pops up, just press the left arrow once and then press enter.
Or you can change the User account control settings to stop it from coming up in the first place.

Subject: JAWS Not Reading Controls
I have a friend who is using Windows 10 with JAWS 2020 and whenever a User Account Control dialogue box opens, it does not read anything to her. She tab and shift tabs and presumably there should be a Yes and a No button on whether she wants to make any changes but it is silent. I’m using Windows 7 with JAWS 2020 and am not having the issue. Is anyone else having this issue and do you know what may be causing it?
