moderated Re: Jaws with Zoom
To share your computer audio/video and not have Jaws be heard by others, you have to have Jaws on a separate sound device.
David mentioned a mixer, Marty mentioned an inexpensive USB audio device, the only other way I know of is to have a hardware USB synthesizer. Those are the most expensive devices of the options mentioned.
I have an old TripleTalk USB speech synthesizer that is run on Usb, and if you select it for Jaws, then the sounds from your computer stay on the computer and only the Jaws speech comes through the Tripletalk, and it has its own volume control and earphone jack.

Subject: Re: Jaws with Zoom
I always use with headphones. My issue is that I want to be able to play a video with sound to my students, but I don’t want them to hear JAWS as well.
The best way I have found to use Jaws with Zoom without everyone hearing Jaws is to use a head set with a microphone.
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.
