Re: Stopping JAWS from reporting slide number when on a PowerPoint slideshow


Dave...
 

...have not done this in several years. When I did, it was back around JAWS
8 or 9. I used a USB audio dongle and was able to route JAWS to that
specific device.

I suggest you plug in a second sound output device, and then Insert+J to
open JAWS. Then arrow to Utilities, and open that menu. Then you should find
an item "sound card" which should allow you to direct JAWS to that device,
and leave other sounds to a default internal sound output.

That's the best I can suggest.

Thanks. But how doo you set up a separate audio output for JAWS? I was
thinking for this before but I have dropped the idea because I thought
it is not possible. Now that you have mentioned having done this, can
you walk me through how to set it up?

announced, but for the purpose of making presentations to an audience, I
used a separate audio output for JAWS. I used the JAWS output fed into a
set of headphones, so that only I could hear it. This was important to me,
since I wanted to hear the slide numbers, and any titles, so that I could
correctly describe the slide to the audience. A separate audio (usually
the

one built into the laptop) was fed into the presentation speakers. Then if
there was any audio (music, sound bites) associated with that slide, the
audience would hear it.

This worked very well.

Hope this idea makes sense.

Hi, a pleasant day to all.
I am using PowerPoint2016 on a Windows10 machine running JAWS17 and I
am just curious... Is there a way to stop or restrict JAWS from saying
slide number while on a slideshow? If yes, can somebody tell me how?

Thanks
