Very interesting, Sieghard.

I guess I can live without the shutdown sound, and figure out other ways to determine whether my computer has indeed shut down.

That has been discussed a few times on the list. There is no simple checkbox to turn on the shutdown sound, you have to create an elevated task using the Task Manager to do this. I did quite a long time ago and it was not very reliable, but since the 1809 update which I happened to get in early October before it was pulled, the shutdown sound is I think consistent on my laptop. I should say that I did not bother to do this on my work desktops. As was mentioned in previous discussions, hearing the shutdown sound is not a 100% guaranty the computer has in fact shut down. I had it a few times when I thought I shut down my laptop in the morning only to find when I cam ehome at night that it was not shut down because something had blocked the shutdown, the sound played, but then the computer didn't shut down.
I believe there is also a way to do this in the registry with one of these registry hacks one can download.

Subject: A question about system sounds in windows 10

Hi all,

On my new windows 10 laptop, I would like to set up a few system sounds associated with certain events. For example, under windows 7, I used to hear a ding when my cursor encountered the top or bottom of the current window. Also, I used to hear a sound when a download completed. Although I've found the system sounds in settings and reviewed the list of program events, I can't figure out how to set these sounds. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

Re: A question about system sounds in windows 10

 

There is no officially supported shutdown sound in Windows 10.  I have a workaround that functions very well on some machines and not so great (as in it's inconsistent) on others.

I submitted feedback via the feedback hub quite a while back about this.  It would not hurt for someone else to do so as well, then post the link to that feedback here so it can be upvoted by others.

Hello, everyone.

 

I am in the process of setting up a new Windows 10 computer with Jaws 2018.

 

I hadn’t used the computer for a couple of days, and when I booted it up this evening, Jaws came up, but was rather distorted and crackly at times.

 

In other words, the audio simply isn’t as it should be.

 

I raised and lowered the speaker volume, but the overall Jaws sound is still distorted.

 

I only have the latest build of Jaws 2018 on this computer.

 

This computer has 16 gigabytes of RAM, and a new I7 processor, so I know there are plenty of resources to work with.

 

What am I doing wrong here, and how can I correct this issue?

 

Thank you!

Hi Tom,

 

To check to see if the RealTek drivers have been screwed up by an update you can try the following to see if all the sound effects and the equalizer is still installed.  Here's how to check to see if the equalizer is installed.  I've done this with both Windows 10 & 7 systems running Jaws 16 thru J2019.
1. Go into the Control Panel / Sounds Link / Playback tab, arrow up or down to highlight the RealTek soundcard.
2. Tab to, Properties, press the spacebar to open.
3. Control + Tab to the, Enhancements, tab / page.  In here you should have 6 items.  Only Equalizer should be checked.  This enables the sound effects. 
If this isn't there you will need to get the RealTek package for your computer from Dell.
 

Also, if you don't have this Enhancements tab / page this means that your RealTek soundcard could have possibly been screwed up via an update and reinstalling the driver package will take care of your sound problems.  On the other hand if it's there then there are other settings that need to be looked at.  Let us know what you find.

 

Take care.  Go Rams!

Hi Tom,

 

It's very possible that a Windows update played hell with the soundcard driver.  It seems like whenever Windows 10 does a big update this happens.  What soundcard is your computer running?

Re: Muffled And Distorted Audio With Jaws On New Windows 10 Computer

Well, I re-booted my computer this morning, and Jaws was no longer muffled or distorted.

 

So, I wonder if it was some sort of a temporary sound driver issue from a recent Windows 10 update, as a few others have suggested.

 

Will keep monitoring the situation here, and hope that it was just a temporary issue.

Re: A question about system sounds in windows 10

Mario
 

nope, Brian's right about that. I recall there was one instance where
navigating to the beginning or end of a Wordpad document sounded a
double ding sound. and JAWS users were wondering why this was happening.
the fix was to disable the topandbottom event to be silenced in quick
settings, due to that Wordpad had it's own topandbottom sound which
could not be disabled because it was embedded and there wasn't a setting
to disable it. but that was some time ago.

Hi Loreal,

 

Whether or not you are working with a .doc or .docx file shouldn't affect how track changes work.

 

To toggle track changes on and off while typing, press shift+control+e.

 

Probably the most efficient way to review changes in a document is to press windows key+semi-colon which brings up a JAWS dialog of things you can review such as comments and footnotes. From the resultant list, choose "revisions" and press enter.

 

The changes should now appear in the virtual viewer, with a numbered link above each. Activating this link will take you to the relevant part of the text in which the change appears.

 

I hope this is a useful start.

 

Cheers,

 

Ed

So if I'm understanding correctly, you updated this new windows 10

Try turning on Narrator which is the built-in windows screen reader.
The key combo to do this is windows + control +enter. This key combo
is a toggle so press it once to turn narrator on and press it again to
turn it off. Using it you will be able to see what's going on and get
to the jaws icon so you can start jaws. At the very least you will be

Re: A question about system sounds in windows 10

 

Kim,

          "Top/Bottom of current window" and "when download completes" are not standard Windows sounds.  Are you certain you didn't have some sort of third party software installed that was doing this?

Hi Kimber,
 
I don't know which program event is supposed to notify you when you are at the top or bottom of the page but, to turn this on you do that in the Jaws quick settings, Insert / Jaws key + V for each application.
Take care.  Go Rams!

Subject: A question about system sounds in windows 10

Hi all,

On my new windows 10 laptop, I would like to set up a few system
sounds associated  with certain events. For example, under windows 7,
I used to hear a ding when my cursor encountered the top or bottom of
the current window. Also, I used to hear a sound when a download
completed. Although I've found the system sounds in settings and
reviewed the list of program events, I can't figure out how to set
these sounds. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

Kim

Got my Jaws 2019 disk on Friday November 23. Might make a nice coaster if it did not have that big hole in the middle.
