Van Lant, Robin

Maybe another option is to turn JAWS to speech on demand when you want to share the audio content. This is done with insert Spacebar, then s. The same keystrokes toggle speech back on. I do this is someone calls me via the softphone in my computer when I do not have headphones in.

Hello Afik,
Thank you for your reply. If the devices were the same in JAWS and Zoom, then the sound of JAWS would be emitted on the other person's computer if I shared computer sound.
I am trying not to have JAWS heard on the other side and just the audio of the music or occasionally video from Youtube that I would be playing.

No! the devices have to be the same in jaws and zoom.
Just press alt s, then tab to share computer sound. Check this
checkbox and press enter. You're done.

I am trying to share computer sound in Zoom so that I can play some
audio to meeting attendees.
I have a USB headset/microphone and I was told that the way to
accomplish the task at hand is to change the sound card in JAWS to the
headset and change the sound in the Zoom audio settings to speakers
but even when I did this, from the audio settings menu in the Zoom
meeting I had, the JAWS sound still came through.
I also tried changing to the internal system microphone in audio
settings, but this still did not resolve the issue.
How do I go about ensuring that JAWS sound is not heard when I go to
share computer sound?
I know that I can also turn off JAWS speech, but I would rather try
to find a solution that does not have me doing this step.
Thank you in advance for any responses.
