usually because the update is updateing before windows is loaded no windows , no jaws.
the other thing is many times if you have a large download or a large number of files you are copying the c p u will turn off the on board sound card so free up more c p u power until it has finished its task. then it will turn the sound card back on.
that is what may happen when you hear the screen reader voice studder for a few seconds when accessing a hard drive.

Hi Mike. Okay. Thanks. Would Narrator really work if the computer is
doing an update? How come Jaws won't work during an update?

Hi Cheryl,

Somewhere along the line the start up and Turn off keystrokes for Narrator
changed. Just in case you didn't know this here's the keystrokes plus the
scan keystrokes for reviewing the screen.

Press ctrl + windows + Enter to start and stop Narrator.
Use shift + spacebar to start and stop scan mode.
when Narrator is in scan mode Its like useing the Jaws cursor. You arrow up
and down and use spacebar to activate items.
Wwhen scan mode is off its like the PC cursor you tab to controls and press
spacebar to activate them.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool. Go dodgers!

Hi Mike. I tried to run Narrator, but it didn't run. Nothing worked or I
couldn't see the screen. Oh well, maybe next time I'll ask someone to pop
in and read the screen. I don't know why I couldn't get Narrator to come
up.

Hi Cheryl,

If Jaws doesn't come up after starting the computer this means that there's
a good possibility that the operating system is doing something in the
background and rebooting the computer could possibly cause unknown things to
happen and they're usually not good to an update if that's what's happening.
If this happens again you should be able to start Narrator and navigate with
it. If the operating system is updating this means it's in a pre-windows
state and Jaws can't run in a pre-windows state. Narrator will be able to
give you an idea as to what's happening and then just give the computer time
to do its thing and it'll probably reboot on its own or give you a message
telling you it needs to be rebooted.

Hi Mike. I mean that I would turn on my computer and Jaws wouldn't start.
I didn't know what was going on. Then I rebooted several times and it
finally worked. This was a month ago. Then my sighted friend came today
and told me that an update needs to be installed. Anyway, good that he got
it installed.

Hi Cheryl,

When you say Jaws wouldn't start, do you mean the computer was running and
Jaws wasn't responding? Or, did you start your computer and Jaws wouldn't
start?

Hi guys. Has anyone experienced installing Windows updates lately? I just
had one. Fortunately, today my sighted friend was here and that was good,
but apparently my computer was trying to install a big update from May for
Windows 10 and it didn't install. Well, there was a time back on July 10
that Jaws didn't start and I had to reboot a few times. These updates are a
real pain. Jaws doesn't warn me when there is a Windows update or anything.
It's really stupid. It used to be that there were warnings and the updates
installed faster. What do you do when you get updates? How do you know
when you get them?
