Good afternoon Ratshtron,

Can you please tell me what is the exact brand name of this USB sound adapter that you have had success with in setting up jaws to go through, so I can do an exact search on amazon to get one of these USB sound adapters to put my jaws through? This USB sound adapter must have its own volume knob? and if you don't mind me asking, what was the price of this USB sound adapter? Any help you can maybe give me on this would be muchly appreciated! Thanks muchly in advance for any possible help with this.

Kindest regards,

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.

I am using a similar setup to yours. Mine

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.

I hope everyone is doing well. I have my Jaws

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
havenâ€ââ„¢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,
