Re: JAWS, Skype, and other audio/video files

The only way that I have been able to accomplish this is with the use of a
mixer. It's been a while since I've had to do this, but I know that I had
to route the audio from my sound card back through my mixer. On the
surface, that may sound like a bad idea do to receiving feedback, but with
my mixer, I was able to pull it off. I believe I also muted the playback of
the audio back through the soundcard that I was using at the time. I think
it really would have to depend on the type of sound card you're using, and
if you have a mixer, or could use one.

I've had the same issue for years, and would also appreciate any tips on
this matter.

Hello,



I have a question regarding using Skype, a screen reader, and a third party
such as YouTube or an audio file.



I was working with someone via Skype on something, and he allowed me to hear
something he'd been working on which was actually a YouTube video. I could
hear both the YouTube video and his voice coming from his computer.



Am I able to do that, even if I have a screen reader such as JAWS? If so,
how would I go about doing it?

I tried testing it out with my friend by going to YouTube and playing a
video, but what he heard was barely audible, except for what I was saying,
which was fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Jim
