moderated Re: Jaws with Zoom
I got a 6 channel mixer from Amazon, I can’t remember how much, I just remember it was cheap for the options it had. I think it was around $29.95. I have JAWS running through it. So, the zoom calls run through separate speakers, thus no one can hear JAWS save me, through headphones. I have the best of both worlds. Perhaps Marty is correct though, you could get a suitable secondary audio device to run JAWS through, I just like the fact that I can run, 2 headphones and a mic with the normal headphone jacks and 3 USB ports for USB devices. Thus the 6 channel mixer idea.

Cynthia, That will require that you have a separate sound card for JAWS, so you can plug in headphones to hear JAWS without your meeting participants hearing JAWS. You can get a USB sound adaptor that has jacks for a microphone and headphones from Amazon for around $12. You would then set JAWS to play through that and your computer sound would still be played in the normal way.

So, what if I want to share sound, or music, through zoom without having everyone hear JAWS?
With your Zoom client open, Tab to the tab list and go to the Home tab. Tab to the Share Options button dropdown and hit Space. Down arrow to the Share Computer Sound check box and hit Space to check it. Now, what ever you hear from your computer will also be recorded and heard by your meeting participants. You may want to do a test to check the levels, as JAWS may be too loud. HTH

I am trying to record a Zoom meeting and I need my Jaws voice to be heard. When I play a practice recording, the Jaws voice is really low in the background. I have tried turning my volume up to 100 percent with no success. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
