I just tried this option with jaws2020 latest update and a set of headfones (don’t know the make).
This might be of some use to someone.
I am using windows 10 home edition and jaws2020 latest versions of everything.
When I turn on my headfones first, they still cut out, even with jaws set to keep the sound card awake.
The only way to have this option actually work for me, is to shutdown jaws2020 and then restart it.
After that, everything works fine.
However, if I then turn off the headfones and turn them on again, they keep cutting out as if the jaws option is not set.
So to summarize:
Turn on headfones.
Turn off jaws.
Haven’t tried it with speakers, as I have a pare of sony srs x-11.
They are absolutely useless, in that they connect to my bluetooth, once every 300 years!!!
Hope this helps someone,
