You press, Control + 7, to open the programs configuration manager and navigate to, Notification voice parameters.

How do you change the voice it uses?

Hi Victor,

 

Stascom doesn't provide start or shutdown sounds, but it informs you what it's doing via a verbal message by a voice you pick.  It doesn't add anything into the, Control Panel / Sounds Link / Sounds Page.  The same voice you pick will deliver any message that is delivered by the Stascom program.  This program is based on the selected voice rather than a sound picked via a sound scheme / Media folder.  There are other voices available.  By default it uses the default Microsoft voice, which is in Windows 7 MS Anna and I forget what the default voice of Widows 10 is, maybe David?.

Hi Mike,

 

No, I think David might remember this, but at the time it was on the Jaws users page it wasn’t called Stascom, it was called by another name, as it maximized windows, provided shut and start up sounds and a whole host of other enhancements to the sound scheme.

 

It’s been a while, at least ten or more years-ago.

Hi Victor,

 

I learned about the Stascom Suite several months ago and just installed it to try it out a couple of months ago.  If it was introduced as far back as XP I don't have a clue.  If it's on the Jaws-Users website I don't have a clue as to what it's called, but it's not under the, Utilities, heading as, Stascom, or at least my search didn't find it using the Stascom name on the Programs page.

Hi Mike,

 

I just read the description of this program, and a great deal of the information sounded familiar.

 

Did this utility used to go by a different name?

 

Perhaps in the old Windows XP days?

 

I also think David had it up on the website under Windows Utilities.

 

Am I correct?

Hi All,

 

As I mentioned earlier, try installing, Stascom, it'll let you know that your computer is both starting and shutting down reliably.  Note: Don't use IE11 to access this link, but use any other browser.  I couldn't get the webpage to open using IE11.

Stanley, while the Jaws start message is mostly consistent, you’ll find the Jaws speech at Windows shut down is hit and miss.

 

I know this as I’ve been using Jaws since 4.5, about fifteen years now.

 

The only way I knew when Jaws was shutting down was when my computer shut down and Windows XP did it’s chime thing.

 

Since then, what you described is hit and miss for me.

 

For example, I just saved a draft of this message, re-started my computer and went back to the message, and I had no indication that my computer was re-starting, nor that Jaws was shutting down save for my computer fan whirring around in the background.  That fan certainly is consistent, certainly not the Jaws speech at Windows shut down.

                Hello Everyone:

 

This is Stanley Haupt from Lehighton, PA. I have been using JAWS since Window-Eyes was discontinued. I started with JAWS 18, JAWS 2018 and JAWS 2019.

 

On this list there has been some email discussion about having JAWS speak when starting and turning off your computer. I have the box check to start JAWS at the Log-in screen. The start JAWS box for all users is not checked. The final step is to run JAWS for this user always.

 

It takes my computer fifteen seconds to start. JAWS says JAWS Professional.

 

When I do Alt-f4 to shut down JAWS says JAWS for Windows. That message let’s me know that the computer has shutdown properly.

 

I am the only one in the household who uses the computer.
