He said even the sound which happens when you press the JAWS key+SPACE BAR, to open the JAWS Layered Keystroke Menue, does not sound.

In addition, he said that he had restored the system to a previous restore point, as a result, JAWS is now using the previous update to JAWS. He is not going to use the latest upgrade to JAWS.

Hi David,
I know you stated that the sounds are turned on in the Settings Center, but did you check to see if sounds were still assigned for entering and leaving forms mode? 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Dear List

After installing the latest Jaws 2021 April Update this week I have lost all Jaws sounds  events – that is no form field sound, no sound if I press insert space etc.

I have also checked Speech and sound scheme and it is set to classic as normal.

I have checked settings centre and Jaws sounds is set to on, as is Form Field sounds.


I have run a repair of Jaws but still no joy in restoring Jaws Sounds. Windows system sounds like the sound events in Microsoft 365 are still working fine.

Any suggestions?
