Found it. I'm not the original author. Here you all go.

with JAWS loaded:

1. press JAWS key 0 to go to the script editor
2.  press shift control D to bring up the default script
3. locate the
Void Function AutoStartEvent ()
4. add the following lines just before the EndFunction statement

SayString("Greetings John Smith , ")
SayString("you are running Jaws version 7 point 0 0 point 1 3 5 U ,")
saystring("Today is")
Say ( SysGetDate(), ot_string)
Say (SysGetTime(), ot_string)

5. change John Smith to whatever you want and change the version number to
whatever version you are running
6. save the script with control s

It should compile correctly otherwise correct any errors and resave.

Hello Dave,
Can you or someone else elaborate on how to  change  jaws start up message?
Can you give step by step instructions for me?

Here are the instructions posted earlier:
in the default.jss file:

Locate the following string:

Void Function AutoStartEvent ()

Then after the very last end if
and before the
end function, insert and edit the following lines:


SayString("Greetings John Smith , ")
SayString("Jaws 11 ,")
saystring("Today is")
Say ( SysGetDate(), ot_string)
Say (SysGetTime(), ot_string)

File/save and if no errors, you're ready to go.

Hi guys: Anyone know how to change Jaws's startup message? Instead of saying
(I use jaws in Spanish, thus translated would be Jaws ten is ready) how can
I change it to something more original like I'm ready or something like
that? Also I've heard on English podcasts on Jaws that you guys have English
Jaws saying Jaws for Windows is ready, thus I'm hoping with the info I might
get from this question you guys might learn how to change to Jaws ten is
ready or Jaws eleven is ready, especially for those who have more than one
Jaws on your system.
Gerardo
