Tom and others, I have a very low tech way of knowing if your machine is completely shut down or not. I love listening to the Chicago Bears football games on a small transister radio, remember those? I listen on AM 780 WBBM.
When my computer is on, there is a loud high pitch squeel on the radio.
This goes away the minute the computer shuts down. Just keep a small AM radio near your computer. Turn it on before shutting down and wait for the radio signal to clear up and then you know that your computer is completely off.

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.

Subject: Re: A question about system sounds in windows 10

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.

This is exactly what I try to do, but that's not always possible in a work environment like where I volunteer.

Turning the computer on is no problem because I get the startup sound, and then Jaws comes on at the log-on screen.

It's just shutting down, and knowing that it has happened, where I have the issue.

And, if anyone knows how to turn on a sound when your computer shuts down, that would be appreciated.

I found the startup sound, but can't find the shut-down sound.

Right now, I don't have a good way to tell that my new Windows 10 computer has completely shut down.

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.

Thanks, Richard, although I'm reluctant to start messing around in the registry.

I think that, if I really find that I just can't live without the shut-down sound, my best bet would be to call the Microsoft Accessibility hotline.

Why microsoft decided to hide those very basic sound controls is beyond me; but it is what it is, as they say.

I found a nice detailed article on how to do this in the registry, which does bring the options back to the control panel sounds scheme, but it had no impact on my system. I selected sounds for exit Windows, Windows logon and Windows logoff and no sound plays. I tried it both with Fast startup on and with it off.
But, if you want to try it out, it is rather easy.
Here is the complete text with the link to the page:

How to Change the Windows 10 Logoff, Logon, and Shutdown Sounds in Windows 10 Walter Glenn @wjglenn September 29, 2016, 11:23am EDT Before Windows 10 came along, we were free to change the sounds that played when we shut down, logged off, or logged on to Windows. For some reason, Microsoft hid those sound actions from being modified in Windows 10. Here’s how to get them back.
RELATED: How to Make Windows Play a Sound When You Press Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock Windows has always been pretty good about letting you customize every nook and cranny of the OS, including what sounds played for all kinds of different system events. You can even make Windows play a sound when you toggle your Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, and Num Lock keys. While you can still customize what sounds sounds play for most OS events, Windows 10 hid shut down, logoff, and logon from view. They’re still around, though. You just need to make a few mild changes in the Windows Registry to get them back.
Add the Actions Back to the Sound Control Panel by Editing the Registry To add the shutdown, logoff, and logon actions back to the menu in the Sound Control Panel app, you just need to make a few little tweaks in the Windows Registry.
Standard warning: Registry Editor is a powerful tool and misusing it can render your system unstable or even inoperable. This is a pretty simple hack and as long as you stick to the instructions, you shouldn’t have any problems. That said, if you’ve never worked with it before, consider reading about how to use the Registry Editor before you get started. And definitely back up the Registry (and your computer!) before making changes.
Open the Registry Editor by hitting Start and typing “regedit.” Press Enter to open Registry Editor and then give it permission to make changes to your PC.

In the Registry Editor, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\EventLabels

You’re going to be making one small change in each of three different subkeys inside that EventLabels key. First, we’ll tackle the shutdown sound or, as Windows likes to call it, System Exit. Under the EventLabels key on the left side of Registry Editor, select the SystemExit subkey. On the right side, double-click the ExcludeFromCPL value.

Note that by default, the value is 1, meaning that the action is excluded from the Control Panel. Change the value to 0 and then click “OK.”

Next, you’re going to make exactly the same change in two other subkeys inside the EventLabels key: WindowsLogoff and WindowsLogon . Head into each of those folders, open the ExcludeFromCPL value inside, and change the value from 1 to 0.

No need to restart Windows. You can go ahead and test your changes right away. Open up the Sound Control Panel app by right-clicking the speaker icon in your Notification Area and selecting “Sounds.”

You should now see the new actions (Exit Windows, Windows Logoff, and Windows Logon) available in the selection window and you can assign whatever sounds you like to those actions.

If, for whatever reason, you want to hide those actions from the Control Panel again, just head back into Registry Editor and change each of those ExcludeFromCPL values back to 1.
Download Our One-Click Registry Hacks

If you don’t feel like diving into the Registry yourself, we’ve created some registry hacks you can use. Download and unzip them first. Inside, you’ll find three folders named “System Exit Sound Hacks,” “Windows Logon Sound Hacks,” and “Windows Logoff Sound Hacks.” Inside each of those folders, you’ll find two hacks: one for adding the action to the Sounds Control Panel and one for removing the action again. Double-click the hack you want to use and click through the prompts. When you’ve applied the hack you want, the changes will take place immediately. No need to restart Windows.
Shutdown-Logoff-Logon Sound Hacks
RELATED: How to Make Your Own Windows Registry Hacks These hacks are really just the individual SystemExit, WindowsLogoff, and WindowsLogon subkeys, stripped down to the ExcludeFromCPL values we talked about in the previous section and then exported to a .REG file. Running either of the hacks sets that value to the appropriate number. And if you enjoy fiddling with the Registry, it’s worth taking the time to learn how to make your own Registry hacks.

using jaws with etrade

mike mcglashon
 

Hey guys:

 

Has/does anyone here on this list who uses jaws,

Ever used it with etrade website?

 

If yes,

Are there any special tips or tricks or settings that make it more usable?

I am not incinuating that it is not working,

Just that,

I am new to etrade, (just signed up with deposit in account the other day),

Am planning on playing in day trading.

 

Some basic questions,

How does the ticker work with jaws,

I have found on other sites that the braille display will keep up with ticker but jaws remains silent,

It will only read the change if I do a “read current line command”;

Has anyone else found this as well?

Also, how are the buy and sell/short order forms as far as accessibility goes?

 

Any feedback will most certainly be appreciated.

 

Actual active traders please need reply,

Anyone else would not have the intricate knowledge of these questions unless they have actually traded successfully using this site?

(placed orders);

Hi,

So if I'm understanding correctly, you updated this new windows 10
computer a few days ago and jaws hasn't spoken since?

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
able to see what's on your screen.

I hope this helps.

He took away my pc and brought m me a refurbished one.
What i’d like help with is when i set it up, it said that i was well out of
date, so installed the update helper, this was on Wednesday and it still
hasn’t spoke to tell me if i’ve installed it correctly.
How can i check this please?
Sorry for sending such a long message, but i’m trying my best to give you
the correct details.

Glad all is working.  Rebooting can be a wonderful thing sometimes.  LOL

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.

That would tell me that it is not JAWS then. You have to look at the sound card, card drivers or the speakers them selves.

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

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!

Re: A question about system sounds in windows 10

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.

And, if anyone knows how to turn on a sound when your computer shuts down, that would be appreciated.

I found the startup sound, but can't find the shut-down sound.

Right now, I don't have a good way to tell that my new Windows 10 computer has completely shut down.

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.
