Re: Using Express Scribe with JAWS

That's not the half of it. Express Scribe is the software this particular
company wants me to use just for a sample transcription because it's free.
If they would hire me, I need to buy Start Stop power play which is another
kettle of fish altogether.

I do transcription work too and used to run into that problem. I don't know
what to tell you, but it sounds like a bug with your transcription player.
I currently don't have a way to adjust the volume levels of the dictation
software player independently of the volume of JAWS on the system. I do
have a separate equalizer with ear buds that are "noise reducing" and the
sound quality is a little better, but it's painful when the volume level of
the dictation is so low that the only way to hear what's being said is to
turn up the volume on the system, which makes JAWS yell at me. I transcribe
with the typing echo off, but have to adjust the volume to proofread my
work. Different players have different controls. Hopefully, someone with
more expertise can help us both out.

Short of buying another sound card, reassigning JAWS to it and trying
to have dictation going in one ear and computer speech into my other
ear, is there a way to separate the JAWS volume from the dictation volume?
