Open the JAWS main screen, insert+j on the desktop keyboard.
Alt+u, o and then select your sound card.

Yes, what you want to do is possible. Not sure why you are having this situation.
I am using latest Jaws 2020 and windows 10. I have my sound blaster card selected in Jaws, but when I go to sound settings in windows and change to a different sound card, I lose Jaws speech.
I thought if I specifically selected the sound blaster card in Jaws, and not the windows default sound, Jaws would always speak through the sound blaster card, regardless of selection in windows 10 sound settings.
I am trying to route Jaws to the sound blaster card and other sounds to the built in realtek sound card.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Also, when I plug in any new sound output device, such as a camera, windows 10 makes this the active sound output device, effectively turning off Jaws speech.
