This is a change of topic but it is in the realm of the subject.

I just installed Jaws 2018 and am using Win 7 64 bit.� I am having a sound issue and it does concern volume.

When I first start up my computer and Jaws starts, it sounds fine.� But when I start to do anything it starts out at a lower volume and then increases to normal.� This will happen until I get onto the internet and start listening to a show or movie.

While doing this and multi tasking, the sound is at the normal volume no matter what I am doing.� But the moment I get off the internet, it starts again with the lower volume and going louder.

Freedom said that it sounded like a sound card issue as even a reinstall didn't fix the problem.� But the strange thing is that no other version of Jaws ever did this and when I was using NVDA because of Firefox, it didn't happen.
Anybody got any clues about what the problem might be?� I'm stumped and can't stand this.

Then, alt+x gets you to the mixer controls where you can adjust programs separately, supposedly.

Here is what I found:

Yes,you can create a Master Volume Shortcut and also assign a Shortcut Key.

Right click on a empty area on desktop, and click on New and Shortcut.

Paste the following in to the location of the item area:-

�

%windir%\System32\SndVol.exe -f 49825268

�

Click Next button and give a name to the Shortcut and click Finish.

�

Now You right click on it and select Properties.

�

Click Shortcut tab.

�

Assign your desired shortcut key like F8 or F9 in the Shortcut Key area.

�

Click OK/Apply.

HTH,

See if your speakers are in the system tray. If they are, hit enter on them, and see if you can open up the master volume. If you can you can lower your volume. You can also do it in control panel in sound link. Jim

Hello all: I was working with another person in a remote session on my Win10 laptop, and JAWS was very loud. ��I was frantically trying to find a hotkey for regulating that, but there seems to be nothing anymore. I checked in the JAWS commands as well. Anyone have a clue?
