How to Have JAWS speech at Start-up and Shutdown

Victor Gouveia
 

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.

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!

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 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,
 
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,
 
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?.

Does this program load automatically at start up??? Does it have a System Tray icon??? Or do you have to open it before shutting down to hear its shut down announcement???

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.

your computer is both starting and shutting down reliably. Note: Don't use

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?.

You can set it to start at start-up via MSConfig and there is not a system tray icon.  You access all it's features either through its configuration manager or the program dashboard.  Below are all the keystrokes.
 
Hotkey reference
main region
article
Description of hotkeys and user preferred modifier keys
list of 4 items
• The default modifier key for the Stascom hotkeys is the control key. Should you experience a clash with another program on your system, the modifier
set can be changed to either Alt or Alt+control. This option can be accessed with the hotkey for the Configuration Manager, modifier+7, then choosing the
entry pertaining to hotkey modifier selection. Stascom has a bypass key, modifier+0, which will suspend all Stascom hotkeys for five seconds. This enables
the user to use a hotkey in another application without the need to change the default modifier or unload Stascom for the active session. An additional
option is to disable the home row 1 to 0 quick access hotkeys under the general category in Configuration Manager.
• When using either Alt or Alt+Control as preferred modifier set, the word count hotkey is excluded from the quick access home ro. This is due to technical
reasons beyond the scope of this document. However, when using a modifier other than the control key, the word count feature can still be accessed from
the program dashboard, modifier+backslash.
• It is also worth mentioning the purpose of the desktop and start menu shortcuts. If the program was unloaded during any given session, these shortcuts
will launch the program. If the program is already active, it will open the dashboard interface from where all features and configuration options are available.
 
• The table below lists a complete list of the key bindings with their associated actions. If you have left the modifier key on its default, the word "modifier"
refers to the control key. Else, replace "modifier" with the alternative you have selected, as described above.

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.

Hi George,
 
Do you have the Stascom program running?  This is the default keystroke to go to the Stascom configuration manager.

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?.

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 Rick,

No, I don't think so, it was something you could add on to your computer that ran in the system tray, made sure all your windows were maximized, and had special announcements that let you know various things.

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!

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.

Yes, it was, and it first appeared on the website where the lady died and
David migrated her stuff over to the Jaws User's site. Now it's bugging me,
as it was a great addition for the blind and screen readers in general.

Hi Rick,

No, I don't think so, it was something you could add on to your computer
that ran in the system tray, made sure all your windows were maximized, and
had special announcements that let you know various things.

I'm sure it'll come to me at some point. LOL.
