Consider the following scenario:

  • You start Job Access with Speech (JAWS) screen reader on a computer that is running Microsoft Lync 2010.

  • The language of the computer is set to a non-English language.

  • In the Lync 2010 sign-in window, you press the Tab key, and then the JAWS screen reader reads the focused content in the window.

In this scenario, JAWS screen reader does not read "Sign-in address" in the local language. For example, if you set the computer language to German, the JAWS screen reader does not read "Anmeldeadresse" in German.


To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update:
