Jaws won't tell you unless someone has written a script, but Windows can alert you if you go in the sound scheme settings, and make sure a sound file that you can actually hear is connected to the appropriate events, like Critical battery and I think there is a low battery.
You just need to go through the events and find the appropriate ones for your needs.


"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young."
"Why, what did she tell you?"
"I don't know, I didn't listen."

I'm not sure about jaws specifically (I only use NVDA on my laptop) but
Windows should tell you when your battery is low. It may not give you a
*huge* amount of time/warning. Mine doesn't -- it's an old Lenovo Thinkpad
and I even got a supposedly fresh battery for it, but never have I ever
gottren satisfactory battery life out of the thing.

Subject: battery question

Hi all,
I've decided that I should start using my laptop unplugged and only charge
it when I'm not using it, and well I know how to check the battery power I'm
wondering will Jaws tell me when my battery is getting low or will I just
have to keep checking? I'm using the latest Jaws and Windows 10. Thanks
