moderated Re: where to set volume control

Hi Shirley.


Go to the system tray with either JAWS+F11 or WINDOWS+B. In either case, you’re looking for your sound device. It will have a percentage after it, which is its main volume setting. Right click on it. If you used the JAWS method to get there, it’s something you can TAB to to activate it. Once you do that, you’ll be in a menu. If you want to change the volume of all your sounds, choose the sound option. If you just want to change the JAWS volume, activate the Volume mixer.


Hope this helps.


Have a blessed day and don’t work too hard.

Subject: where to set volume control


Hi Everyone,


I’m using a desktop computer running Windows 10 and JAWS 2020, latest update. This may seem like a silly question, but I haven’t needed to change volume for JAWS in a very long time. Now, for some reason, the sound that comes through my ear buds is so loud it’s painful. I can’t seem to find where I turn volume up or down. Please, someone help. I want to keep my ears.
