According to what I've seen on another list, it does have one.  But because of the quick boot feature, you won't hear it unless you do a full reboot if you have quick boot enabled.  That's because a quick boot is not a full boot from Windows being completely unloaded where as a reboot is.
 
I've also seen comments that the Windows 10 boot up sound can be changed but it requires making a change in the registry.

Hi, Arleen,

Windows 10 doesn't have the startup sound. This computer was originally a
windows 7 computer. When I upgraded to windows 10, I unchecked the fast
startup so I got the windows 7 startup back.

Re: NVDA Curiosity

Roger Stewart
 

I think that if all that is heard is one or two folks saying this isn't working right then it may appear there is a more or less serious bug in nvda. However, if many others say all is good (especially with the specific programs that are giving others trouble) then it would appear that isn't an nvda problem at all. This is not to "slap in the face" or deny that these problems don't exist, but just to get things into prospective so the real problems can be identified and fixed for the good of all.

YYeah same here, the only issue I am having is the espeak squisher issue and its not uber bad like I want to chuck the computer into hell and buy jaws, its just a slight accent squish that I think they will get fixed its probably something wrong with the phonem data than anything else since thats what it sounds like.

I agree with Bhavya. That's a better route in the long run, rather
than reverting to an older version of NVDA, which does not provide the
best functionality. I would also like more persons to test out NVDA,
even the snapshots or RCs, just to ensure that more bugs are fixed.

for example: i changed the language to english-US and when i opened my

i think this is a bug due to the updating of espeak version to espeak
ng.
the developers of espeak were change and it decreased the quality of
program.
if there is no way to set nvda to first selected or unselected and
then announces the selection, i stick to the previous versions for
always.
because its very important for me to hear first selected and then its

hi joseph and every one.
thanks so much for great project.
i downloaded the new version today and i faced some problem using it?
could you please help me to find a solution?
first of all, i set my nvda not say any punctuation, but unfortunately
did
not work completely in this new version and nvda announces some
punctuation
like ) in all cases and : and ? in some cases.
it happen even when i want to navigate in the local disks of my
computer.
after all of them nvda says )
second, the american accent is a little robatic in compare to the
previous
version of espeak.
and third, i did not test previous versions.
but how can i return nvda to says selected or unselected and then
announces
whats the selection?
this rool changed since version 2015.4 and now i tested, because i
mentioned
i did not test the previous versions and for this reason, the best
version
for me is version 2015.2 or 2015.3 i appreciate your help and guide.
thanks so much and god bless you.

I am going to submit an issue at some point of time expressing the

their software no longer will support vintage PC's!

So, if users insist on continued usage of old PC's/machines. Then
don't complain/whine when operating systems/software does not run
correctly on your machines!

Is there any one else that is not having any problems with NVDA 2016.2?

Exactly! When we did beta test jaws. We had to tell what version of windows we had. Back when Jaws was 5.0 there was windows xp, me, 98 and 95.  So we had to say what we were using.  Most or almost everybody was using xp from what I remember.  We also had to say the version of beta we were using.

Arlene observed, "Confirmed! If you have a certain bug. Some people can or can’t confirm your bug."

Yep, because the number of variables that come into play to make certain bugs exhibit themselves are mind boggling (which is often why the software maker cannot replicate an issue even if they try to do so in what should be "the same environment" as it was encountered in by the user).

We have folks with various versions of Windows, all sorts of different hardware, all sorts of assistive technology beyond NVDA potentially installed, all sorts of programs in general besides NVDA installed, and the list goes on.  Each and every one of those things has the potential to set things up *juuuuuust right* for you, and only you (or a very small number of people who have the same combination as you), to encounter a given bug.

I often think it's a bit of a miracle that most software functions at all given the number of variables at play that the developers have no control over and may have never even had a reason to conceive of.

With JAWS and NVDA, to read how much charge you have left in the battery is:
NVDA or JAWS+SHIFT+B

Issac,

         You're going to need to be a lot more explicit about the kind of signal you are trying to measure when you reference "signal tower."  Also, what's a signal battery?

         You also might get a quicker answer on the BlindTech group.

signal or battery signal app

hi, anyone know of a signal tower or signal battery app?

I'm sure many people are using them.  Unless the developers start asking for more testers, it can be assumed that enough testers are participating.

Jean,
I can see your point and I agree with you for the most part, but the
beta versions of a product are only good if people are actually using
them and reporting bugs.
