There are headsets and then there are headsets.  Better devices have less lag.  As far as that goes, though, I can't stand having any keyboard echo turned on, extra stuff rattling on while I'm trying to think just ruines the process.  Much better to check things over after they are written.

And just on another note I can't stand using a Bluetooth headset or speaker with my PC because of the lag which every device has. I type and do stuff too quickly for that not to be a problem mand prefer devices without a lag. On my laptop this means that if I want to use a wireless headset I use the Logitech 800 which comes with a USB dongle similar to Logitech keyboards and that is exactly the reason as well why I would never use a Bluetooth keyboard on my PC, just too much lag.

I use jaws with bluetooth on a fairly regular basis, and I'm not having those problems.  Many times I have to hit the play button on my bluetooth headphones after I've turned them on to get all the sound to switch, but once done, it stays right there.  You might want to make sure your sound driver is up to date.

Hi all,


Does anyone find Microsoft Windows 10 and JAWS with Bluetooth devices quite inconsistent?

Sometimes JAWS seems to just stop when using a Bluetooth speaker and seems to swap to a different sound device.

Don’t think it is JAWS but possibly Windows.

If you go in to JAWS, utilities and sound cards, you can change the device but sometimes the name of the sound device doesn’t seem to relate to the one I would expect e.g. the Realtek Sound device being the laptop internal speakers will send JAWS output to the Bluetooth speaker.

You click on the Bluetooth speaker name and JAWS goes to the internal laptop speakers.
