I feel so stupid: My JAWS volume was muted.

Hello Corey,

I don't think you ever mentioned whether its an HP, Dell, Lenovo or other brand with information on the type/kind of soundcard your computer has. Maybe if you give us a little more information you might get more responses.

I've isolated this issue to one having to do with JAWS as I'm currently able to hear other audio out of my headphones. When I select the "headphones" in the JAWS "sound card" menu, I'm not able to hear JAWS audio.

Sincerely,

Cory McMahon

I've had odd things happen as a result of Windows updates regarding JAWS and the headphone output on one of my computers. Among things that have already been mentioned, check what sound card JAWS thinks it's using. On my system I have to set it to use something called "Speakers (external)". When I plug 'phones in, they work. There's also a speaker inside the computer. If I select that one--"speakers (internal)"--and plug 'phones in, nothing happens. It depends not just on what JAWS is set to use, but also what Windows thinks is its default audio device.
That can be found in Settings (Windows Key + I), type "sound" and press down-arrow until you hear "Sound settings," then tab through the dialog to discover how your system is set.
