Plantronics also makes a single-driver unit mixing the two sources, like the one I’m presently using.  Works pretty well, without the cauliflower ear I had with the dual unit a few years ago.

You will need a hedset that allows you to hear JAWS in one ear, and the phone (or whatever audio source you are listening to,) in the other. Plantronics used to make such a device years ago. You will need this regardless of whether you work from home, or out of the home.

Hi list members,


I’m currently searching for a customer service, medical transcription, or other home based position  but am not sure what extra equipment I might need to do these types of jobs from home.  Do I need special software, special headset and/or ear bud, etc.?  I use Windows 7 and Jaws 15.


Could somebody please share their current or past experience with home based employment?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
