The desktop is loaded then after about 1 minute or more, Jaws will speak. ----- Original Message ----- From: Dave 'SqueezeBox' Carlson To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, June 18, 2008 1:22 PM Subject: Re: starting jaws Rob, If you mean that it takes a couple minutes before we get the logon prompt, that is normal. I have a 2.4 G laptop and I know that the prompt for the network password is on the screen 30 to 40 seconds before JAWS starts speaking. Don't know of any way to speed it up.
