moderated Re: USB condenser mic and JAWS2021

Once you plug in the mic, if it has a headphone jack, all sounds will
come through that jack. So, now you have to change your sound output
device back to what you want.

I hope this is what you were looking for.

If jaws is playing through your speakers, and the microphone is picking up the speakers, Jaws will come through the microphone.
I have not heard of any way to avoid Jaws being heard in a Zoom meeting unless you are wearing headphones.

I am considering a USB microphone for use in Zoom meetings in lieu of
a headset with microphone and I was wondering if JAWS speech would
come in on the microphone if I were to use this set up? The JAWS
speech coming through is something that I would like to alleviate.
This was occurring with the laptop and built-in microphone.
Thank you in advance for any responses.
