moderated Re: 2nd sound card for Jaws, retaining settings


I use a usb sound adaptor and have a wireless headset base plugged in to it and I have been using this setup for over two years. once you have your setup installed, press insert plus j then down arrow to utilities and then to sound cards and press the device you wish to use with JAWS and press enter. the selection should stay once selected.

never functioned successfully.
There are too many variables to get a handle on.
Good luck.

How can I get Jaws and Windows 10 to retain my settings? I need to keep
this setup for hosting Zoom meetings.

I have downloaded System Volume View but haven’t ¢t installed it yet.
Would working with this program to set profiles for different
configurations be easier than working with the Win 10 settings?

Thanks for reading,
