Hi Guys,


I’m chiming in on this thread a little late; however, have you tried uninstalling the sound card through device manager, then restart your computer and let Windows reinstall the sound card. Or have you tried updating the drivers through the manufacturers website or through the device manager. Just some things to try if you haven’t already. HTH

Would an external USB sound card be an option?

That is just a shot in the dark.

This sounds like a pysical problem. I have JAWS and Duxbury and do not
have this issue. I, too, find this disturbing. What about replacing
the sound card?

Hello, As some of you may know I had the static problem when Jaws speakes.


was able to stop this from occurring by disabling enhancements under the

sound card. I just installed Duxbury software for sending text to my


printer. When in Duxbury the static was back. I went into word and it was

static like it was before. Now it is not just when typing, it is all the

time. I closed out of everything and rebooted. The static noise went away.


went into word and there was no static. I then went into Duxbury and the

static came back. I checked enhancements under the sound card and it was

still disabled. Now what? Is there something on the internet that gives

ratings for sound cards?
