The only thing I can think of is that Windows was trying to give you a notification about something or another.  Check out the tutorial below about turning notifications on or off.

 

From: James Flusche
Try the following.

 

****How to turn W-10 sound notifications, on and off for all  apps on your computer.
1. Press Windows key+I, for the settings area search  edit box, Tab one time.
2. Press Enter on System, Tab one time.
3. Down  arrow to, Notifications and Actions, press Enter.
4. Tab 2 times to, Get  notifications from apps and other senders Button checked, If you don't want to receive any notifications from any apps or other
senders press the Spacebar to  uncheck / turn off all the app notifications.
5. Now if you leave the button above  checked, Just press the Tab key, and you can individually press the Spacebar, to  check or uncheck, any apps you
wish to get a sound notification from.
6.  So leave this checked, Get notifications from apps and other senders Button  checked.
7. Now Tab across this screen, you will have buttons for all the  apps installed on your computer, press the Spacebar to check or uncheck  them.
 
*Note: As an example, this is how the man that wrote  these steps  have his set up, on his computer.
Show notifications on the lock screen  Button checked.
Show alarms, reminders, and incoming VoIP calls on the lock  screen Button.
Hide notifications when I'm duplicating my screen  Button.

Microsoft Office Click-to-Run (SxS) Button  checked.

Outlook 2016 Button checked.

I hope this helps, Smiles.

Hi Mike, I don’t remember it happening when I was on the internet, but I do remember it happening while I was in Word and also while I was using Outlook 365.

 

Does that give you any ideas?

 

Thanks very much for all suggestions!

 

Sincerely, Vicky V

Hi Vicky,

 

Is this happening on the internet only or, when you use say all anywhere?


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi David, My computer does have a touch screen, but this is not relevant I believe, since I am using an external keyboard.

 

One of the statements I can think of that it says just before it freezes is, “Desk top notification.”

 

I know there are others, but right now I do not remember them exactly.

 

Thanks for your thoughts!

 

Sincerely, Vicky V

Vicky, does your computer have a touch screen? I'm just wondering if it might be that you may have inadvertently touched the monitor or perhaps the mouse during the reading.

Hi List, I am using Jaws 2020 on a Windows 10 computer.  I have found that with increasing frequency the “Say All” is derailed by Something.  I am not sure exactly what happens, but I think a message may have flashed up regarding some Windows happening and this both stops the reading and sends the reading back to the beginning.

 

Have any of you experienced the same thing and have you found any way to prevent this from happening?

 

Thanks for any suggestions!
