It depends on your OS whether or not JAWS will work because with Windows7 (using some registry files) JAWS would work while in Safe Mode, but this unfortunately does not seem to be the case using Windows10. Microsoft claims that Narrator will work while in Safe Mode in a video on YouTube, but others say that it is not true and that Narrator will not successfully work within Safe Mode.
As far as getting into Safe Mode.
BootSafe is something that you may want to look in to (description and URL to download below).

After all the discussion of getting sound in Safe Mode, it would probably help to discuss actually booting
I have earlier talked about using MSCONFIG or bcdedit methods for doing this, but both have the
disadvantage of making that boot sequence "permanent" if you don't undo the change while you're in
Someone on Bleeping Computer just pointed me to a freeware utility, BootSafe, that fills the bill
perfectly to allow you to either directly restart and boot into Safe Mode a single time, or to stage things
such that when you choose to Restart next that you'll boot into Safe Mode. It's also 100% accessible
The program runs as a portable program from any non-networked drive (that means copy it somewhere
on a disc drive that's internal to your machine). The only big proviso is that you must not remove the
program or move it from its location after you've used it to stage a Safe Boot on next Restart. Once
you've gone to Safe Mode, and then later rebooted into regular Windows, you can safely remove it
The options, for anyone used to using Safe Mode or looking to use Safe Mode, are self explanatory. All
are controlled by radio buttons and as you move among the 4 options the radio button is automatically
selected. The default is Safe Mode, Minimal, which means without networking. You want to down arrow
once to get to the Safe Mode with Networking option. After that you simply tab to one of two buttons:
list of 2 items
1. Configure only (no restart) - which sets the stage for the machine to enter Safe Mode
when you next choose to Restart it or Cold Boot from complete shutdown.
2. Restart Windows - which instantly begins the Restart process, so close out your programs before
hitting this to save your data, and boots straight into Safe Mode. list end
If you change your mind after having fired up the program, and have not yet activated either of those
two buttons, simply close the program.

BootSafe is a tiny application that allows you to restart your PC in Safe Mode with a single click. Without it, starting in Safe Mode usually requires
a manual restart and hitting the F8 key.There are four restart options in BootSafe's single...
