Re: How to Have JAWS speech at Start-up and Shutdown

No, TweakUi was for all users, and I think it was a MS product.
This is for the Blind, for the most part and Stascom does not allow for the amount of tweaking that TweakUi did .

You may be thinking of Tweak UI.

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.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

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.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
No one has more to say than the woman who says she doesn't want to talk
about it.

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.
