Van Lant, Robin

I saw one on for $12. I think I'll give it a try.

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.

How, exactly, did you accomplish this? I tried it a while back and was
totally unsuccessful, but would like to try again.

Hi group,

My selections for using Jaws with a second sound card seem to be
staying where I set them. Thanks to all for the suggestions.

I am using a similar setup to yours. Mine was a bit unstable at
first but, cross my fingers, it has been stable for a couple of years.
On the other hand, we tried a separarte USB
card in my wife's desktop and it
never functioned successfully.
There are too many variables to get a handle on.
Good luck.

Hi group,

I hope everyone is doing well. I have my Jaws
2020 going through a USB sound card. I have all other sounds going
through my default sound card to external speakers. I am running
into times when Jaws gets set back to the default sound card and the
system sounds come through my headphones. Or all sounds come through
the default card (external speakers) Ã' or through the headphones.
Or Jaws goes through the default card and the system sounds through
my headphones.

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 havenâEUR(tm)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,
