moderated Re: Bluetooth Headset Not Reading First Dozen-or-so Characters or Line of Text
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)
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?
