Does Windows 11 have fast boot on by default?   If so, as in Windows 10, you won’t hear the Windows sound unless you restart Windows, not shut down then boot.  If you restart with fast boot on, that completely reboots Windows.  If fast boot is on and you shut down, you aren’t doing a full boot of Windows.  Some of Windows remains ready to run which makes boot faster.

    Has the windows start music been removed in windows 11?  My friend is in the windows insider program and he has the developer version and the windows start sound is checked but when the pc starts there is no start up music.  If this true than if nvda for some reason does not read the log in screen then we won't know if our pcs are on the desk top or not. He does like windows 11 but he did not like windows 10 11 is faster on start up and everything else the edge loadsmuch faster.

Hello everyone,

As per a directive from forum moderators, if you have any questions about Windows 11 (currently being tested by Windows Insiders), please write to me or to Win10 Forum for Screen Reader Users:

 

For those who are watching Twitter universe: I’m delighted to announce that NVDA runs on Windows 11 Insider Preview (build 22000), and NV Access retweeted it. As implied by folks here last week, as Windows 11 is under active development, things can change without notice, including issues and resolutions. More info about Windows 11 issues for screen readers (as reported by Windows Insiders) can be tracked here:

win10@win10.groups.io | Windows 11 (thread): first impressions, things to be aware of

 

If you are indeed a Windows Insider and happen to be using NVDA, I’m tweaking NVDA to work better with Windows 11 via Windows App Essentials. For best experience, please install:

  • NVDA 2021.1 beta 5 or later
  • Windows App Essentials June 29th development snapshot or later

 

Again if you have any questions or comments on Windows 11 preview, please write to me directly or ask on the forum I linked above.

Cheers,

Joseph
