Open the Jaws settings center with insert+6 on the numbers row.

Press control+shift+d to open the default settings.

Arrow down to user and right arrow, then arrow down until you find this setting:

JAWS Settings Center - Default (All Applications)
Avoid speech cut off when using Bluetooth headphones or some sound cards

I’m assuming it is not checked, so hit your spacebar and then tab to OK and hit enter.

Subject: Bluetooth Headset Not Reading First Dozen-or-so Characters or Line of Text


Greetings – I have recently paired my Toorun M26 Blue Bluetooth headset with my HP laptop. I am running the latest Jaws 2021 and Windows 10 with all updates. When I attempt to read an e-mail message or text file, the first characters of a line of text or a whole line of text will not be read. Sometimes I can get the whole line to read through the headset if I press the up and down arrow keys to move off and back onto the line of text. I do not have this problem when using wired earbuds with the HP laptop. I have not been able to find any setting that has any effect on what is read with the Toorun M26 headset and Jaws 2021. I have not had any problems with the headset failing to provide audio output as expected with earbuds or headset.

Any suggestions for getting consistent reading from my headset/laptop combo?
