moderated Win 11 2022 H2


Marie Nelson
 

A week or so ago, I was told that there was a problem with Jaws sound on this latest version of Win 11. Does anyone on the list know if this has been fixed? I am being offered the update on my desktop, but hesitate to install it just now.

Any other issues that we should be aware of?

Thanks, Marie

 


 

Marie,

I have not seen any reports of issues with sound and JAWS under Windows 11 Version 22H2 on either this group of the JAWS User's Group.

If your computer has the Intel SSt driver you may experience audio issues.

Great, it must have been an isolated occurrence.

Hello Marie,
 
Windows 11 22H2 has a bunch of different problems when it comes to the installation and upgrading of the program.  With the removal of the option to install a local account if the option to keep nothing is selected during the upgrade process then you will run into access problems with the pin code creation that the install requires.  If you choose the upgrade option from Windows 11 21H2 and your account is configured as a local account prior to the install then you will not run into the pin code problem. 
 
The sound card drivers have been updated for many of the realtek sound cards and the sound quality is absolutely horrible compared to how it was before.  Other realtek sound cards as well as other brands of sound cards don't seem to have the problem; but figuring out which ones will have the problem and which ones will not is a pure guessing game.
 
The next problem you may run into is after the reboot that takes place during the upgrade you might lose all speech.  Jaws does not always restart and narrator will launch; but does not speek after the reboot to finish the upgrade.
 
Additional problems may also happen related to the pin code that non local accounts require as narrator will be the only form of speech that you will have access to as this prompt will come up before Jaws has the opportunity to load and on several brands of machines narrator will not access the field for creating or verifying the pin code.
 
22H2 also requires that you have an active connection to the internet during the upgrade process as it will not allow upgrading or installation without an internet connection.
 
Microsoft is aware of many of these problems and they have come out with 3 updates to 22H2 since it's release to the public less than 3 weeks ago and they are planning additional updates in the coming days as the release has a lot of problems with it and it was released before a lot of the problems could be addressed according to the Microsoft technicians that support the program.
 
There are also other problems with known systems that should be capable of upgrading that they are not even making the upgrade available to yet because they know it will crash the system that it is attempting to upgrade.
 
I hope this helps.
 
Kevin

Oh, this sounds like something I will definitely postpone, and leave to the more experienced folks. Thanks for the information.
