Hi David. Thanks for the info. I thought by now I would have gotten the
original creators update since most other people I know have it. Is there a
way to check on when I might be getting it if I was curious about that?
I'm still using audacity 2.1 so I'm a bit behind on the program at this point.
I'm sure version 2.2 also comes with new vst plugins and effects that aren't
available in 2.1.

you say that you wait for the updates to propagate to your machine on their
own, and this is what most people, including microsoft recommend. My guess is
that you will get the original creators update at some time, and then latter
you'll get the fall one. The fall creators update is due to start rolling out
mid October, but it seems to take several months until the roll out is
complete. If your computer does skip an update, there probably won't be any
problems. But with Microsoft, you never can be sure.

Hi there. I still haven't gotten the original creators update so if I don't
get it by the time the fall creators update gets here, will the fall update be
the only one that installs since I'm assuming it will include whatever was in
the original update. I would have thought by now that I would have gotten the
first update but I haven't and I'm not one to install those things myself,
rather waiting for them to propagate to my machine on their own.
Thanks for the help.

Subject: [audacity4blind] Jaws and Windows 10 creators update
This is an update on the problem of Audacity crashing which using Jaws on the
Windows 10 creators update.
The good news is that Jaws 2018, which is now in public beta doesn't cause
Audacity to crash. Jaws 2018 beta can be downloaded from this page:
In addition, when the Windows 10 fall creators update is released in October,
it looks like any version of Jaws will be able to be used without causing
Audacity to crash.
Also, as mentioned in previous posts, the Audacity nightly build does not crash
when using Jaws, although you need to look out for a number of changes. The
nightly builds are available from:
And the introduction to my Jaws guide for Audacity 2.2.0 includes the changes:
You can of course use NVDA and Audacity, as this combination has not been
affected by the Windows 10 creators update.
