I don't know if there's a way to have Jaws read this screen for you.  Have you 
tried memorizing the screen and maybe timing when this login screen comes up?  
I imagine that the cursor will by default in the User ID field by default.  You 
would only then have to tab down once to the Password field.  My only concern 
is that that Jaws not reading may not be limited to the Login screen.  It's 
possible that Jaws might not read anything in the terminal window.  Which 
version of Jaws are you using by the way?  I thought I had read somewhere that 
Jaws 7.0 would allow people to access the remote access window.  Window Eyes 
has had this capability since their last release and I thought Jaws was going 
to add this feature as well.

  hi list, i have a query...

  i need to use "Microsoft terminal service center", for accessing machine 

  I could connect to the machine successfully but as the user login appeared 
jaws went blank.

  It was not reading anything except icons like "graphic480" etc.

  i could not understand where I was.

  with my colleague's assistance I filled up user name and password.

  But jaws was not able to read anything on any of it's screens.

  Actually my work requires me to connect to different machines remotely and 
make some configurations, run  things and monitor the responses.


  Do we need to make any special settings in jaws to make jaws read the ui?

  Thanks in advance.
