Re: need help unmuting volume
Not such a good suggestion, I just muted my volume and started Narrator and heard nothing. Starting Narrator at least on my laptop did not unmute the volume, I know this for sure because when I unmuted it (I simply use the appropriate function keys on my keyboard) Narrator as well as Jaws were running. This is also aother small issue, Narrator will start and run with Jaws, but then you have both screenreaders running and potentially conflicting.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Anybody who has a laptop should also learn about which function keys mute the volume and which function keys turn volume up and down, I have yet to see a laptop who doesn't have this feature. At best if your function keys behave as traditional function keys or if you have done something to make them behave this way, you have to press the FN key along with whichever function key to get the Mute, Volume Up and Volume Down functions. On my Asus Zenbook FN+F10 mutes/unmutes the volume, FN+F11 is volume down and FN+F12 is volume up. This can be useful if you use a USB soundcard because I am pretty sure the screen refresh command, Jaws Key + Escape, will only unmute the default soundcard in the computer and not any other soundcards or USB devices such as USB speakers or headsets.

All suggestions are great!
No one has mentioned that if you are using Windows 10 you can hold down Control + Window Key and press Enter to bring up Narrator which will then give you speech access to your computer to get to your volume control and un-mute your sound.

Hi, Jed. Another way besides INSERT plus ESCAPE to unmute JAWS is
If anyone knows the command, it would be awesome
