Hi,

 

You don’t need the snapshot any more, just go to the TWBlue website and download the latest Windows installer.

 

All the best

Hi, when I used this link to download the file, it downloaded a 54 bit version as a zip folder.  Do I need to extract these files and within that folder I’ll find the TW Blue.exe file?  Should I then press Enter on that? 

 

I did delete the %appdata% and deleted TW Blue from that folder before I downloaded.

 

Thanks,

TW Blue suddenly stopped working on my computer this weekend.  I am running JAWS 2022 and latest version of windows 10.  Is anyone else experiencing problems with TW Blue?

 

Does anyone have suggestions for an app for getting and responding to tweets on a windows 10 computer?

Hi Tom,

Looks like you can't any more. I thought there was a sound associated with it in your sound theme, but I can't find it.

Sorry for misleading you.

All the best

I've never heard of that one.

Fast Start Up is uncheck on all my machines, and the Windows start up sound works.

The issue I believe is that no start up sound is defined in your sound scheme, in that case, it won't work.

Dave and all:

I followed the instructions below for activating the windows start-up sound, and play windows startup sound is checked.

However, when I shut down and then re-boot my computer, the start-up sound does not play.

I am referring here to the older computer that I recently updated to Windows 10 from Windows 7.

I believe that the windows start-up sound played immediately after I did the update, but no longer plays after I downloaded and installed new Dell drivers for my system.

Is there anything else I should check?

How to turn on the "play Windows startup sound" function in Windows 10

1. When you are at the desktop, tap the WINDOWS Key, and type "change system sounds" (without the quotes, in the search edit field. Generally, as soon as you type the two letters ch, Windows usually delimits to this result. If it does, press ENTER, to open the utility.

2. When the utility opens, JAWS will speak some Windows information about system sound themes. If you do not wish to listen to the information, Tap the CTRL key, to stop JAWS speaking the infomation.

3, Tap the TAB key, until JAWS says, "play Windows startup sound". JAWS will tell you it is unchecked. This is the default setting.

4. Tap the SPACE BAR, to check the check box.

5. Tap the TAB key until you get to the Apply button, press the SPACE BAR, to apply the change

6. Tap the TAB key, until you get to the OK button, Press the SPACE BAR or, the ENTER key, to activate the OK button, to close the utility and return the system to the Desktop.

7. When you turn on the computer, restart Windows or, you wake the computer using either the Sleep mode or, Hibernation Mode, the play Windows startup sound will be played.

8. After you hear the Windows Startup sound, if you are someone who needs to enter a Windows password or, a Microsoft account password to log in to Windows, and you have not installed another screen reader or, you have, but it has not been set to start at the Log on screen, this is where you need to press CTRL+WINDOWS KEY+ENTER, to start Narrator. When Narrator starts speaking, Narrator should tell you , that you are at the point where you need to enter the Windows password or, the Microsoft account password to log into Windows.

9. If you are someone who has disabled the default log on screen, when you hear the play Windows startup sound, Windows is at the Desktop. If you have not installed another screen reader or, you have, but it has not been set to start after Windows Log on, this is where you need to press CTRL+WINDOWS
KEY+ENTER, to start Narrator and get access to Windows.

Go to Sound and press enter
Pres Control + Tab twice to go from the Playback tab to the Recording tab and finally the Sounds tab, you can also press Shift + Tab until you hear "Playback tab" and then arrow right twice to Sounds
Tab until you hear "Play Windows Startup Sound" and make sure the checkbox is checked, then tab to OK and activate it.

9. If you are someone who has disabled the default log on screen, when you hear the play Windows startup sound, Windows is at the Desktop. If you have not installed another screen reader or, you have, but it has not been set to start after Windows Log on, this is where you need to press CTRL+WINDOWS

Thanks, Bill.

I appreciate your continued patience.

And, I sincerely hope this set of instructions benefits more than just me.

I'll give them a try when I get the chance, and will post the results of my efforts.

Bill or anyone:

I hate to ask this, but could you send me any instructions for checking fast start-up?

Up until now, I've avoided this because it seemed like having fast startup enabled created more issues than it solved.

But, perhaps I'm wrong, and need to re-think this.

I can get away without the Windows start-up sound, but it is nice to have so you get a quick indication of the status of your computer when re-booting.

Thanks!

Dave and all:

I followed the instructions below for activating the windows start-up sound, and play windows startup sound is checked.

However, when I shut down and then re-boot my computer, the start-up sound does not play.

I am referring here to the older computer that I recently updated to Windows 10 from Windows 7.

I believe that the windows start-up sound played immediately after I did the update, but no longer plays after I downloaded and installed new Dell drivers for my system.

Is there anything else I should check?

2. When the utility opens, JAWS will speak some Windows information about system sound themes. If you do not wish to listen to the information, Tap the CTRL key, to stop JAWS speaking the infomation.

3, Tap the TAB key, until JAWS says, "play Windows startup sound". JAWS will tell you it is unchecked. This is the default setting.

4. Tap the SPACE BAR, to check the check box.

5. Tap the TAB key until you get to the Apply button, press the SPACE BAR, to apply the change

Hi

My understanding is I would need JAWS 2022 to work with Windows 11. So how would I block my computer from automatically launching windows 11 until I can gat JAWS 2022 and allow microsoft time to work out some of the kinks that will likely happen with windows 11?
