There is a bit of a trick to check for windows shut down. Wait a bit and try opening your CD drive. If it opens, you're not totally shut down. If not, shut down has taken place.

Re: shut down sound for windows 10

 

Related to Maria's trick is just using a jump drive or SD card.

If you plug in or pull either of the above you will typically get a system sound telling you that it's either connected and ready for use or that it (or some other) USB device has been removed.

If you yank a jump drive after doing a shutdown, and after waiting at least a reasonable amount of time for a shutdown to complete, you should be pretty safe in assuming that you are shut down if you don't get an auditory signal related to removing a USB device.

I have bent over backwards trying to find a consistent way to trigger a shutdown sound, but have not as yet found it.

Re: shut down sound for windows 10

as I understand, Microsoft has disabled the ability to enable such a
sound, and many sighted users have tried rather involved methods but
none of the attempts have seemed to work reliably.
but, if some smart and savvy dude out there knows how to enable it,
please do post how with complete and concise steps.

Re: Firefox and JFW 15

Richard Turner
 

If the person is truly sticking to Jaws 15, he probably also needs to stick with Windows 7, if that is even possible.
Perhaps he needs to call VFO and see if he can update for less than an arm and a leg.
Even if Jaws 16 kind of works, it is not going to provide a very good experience.
Just my two cents,
Richard

Re: Jaws question

 

As others pointed out, Google has made it easier to narrow your search, the "Search Modes" has "All" selected by default, but here you can narrow your search down to images, maps, news or shopping,
You can still use the headings quick nav key "h" to find the beginning of the search results and go from result to result with heading level 3.

Hello all:

Recently, I've noticed Jaws saying "search Modes" whenever I do an Internet search for something. This announcement is fairly new, and I don't remember hearing this phrase announced before.

Has some setting been inadvertently changed(either Jaws, or pc), and if yes, is it OK to leave this alone?

Sincerely yours,
