I have been waiting to respond to this persons question/concern.

I personally have experienced the same problem she describes regarding the use of Zoom and the Aftershokz blutooth headset.

I don't think it is a JAWS problem and think that it is an Aftershokz problem as every other person reporting on this topic are using a different brand blutooth headset and are not experiencing the problem like the Aftershokz.

I will be going to the Aftershokz website to see if I can send them a message and see what they say.

I have encountered the problem with Jaws2020 not talking. I can still hear the host of the meeting and anyone else present. I was thinking of calling Freedom Scientific and this would be like beating a dead horse.

Subject: Zoom with JAWS and bluetooth headphones

When I open zoom and have my aftershocks bluetooth headphones connected, I discover that I lose JAWS speech. I am using the latest version of JAWS2020. Audio from zoom also does not come through.
Has anyone else noticed this? I did install silenzio because I noticed that sound had been choppy but I have also tried uninstalling it and also uninstalling and reinstalling Zoom to no avail.
Thank you in advance for any responses.
