Joseph gave you the best info.
But you can also tap your Windows key and type date and time and it will take you to the settings.

You can go to the windows settings, date and time settings.
If you have automatically adjust the time then as someone said, your battery may be going out because it shouldn't slow down.
You can get into those settings and adjust it manually, but I just leave mine so it syncs with the internet.
I also find it is easier to cope with settings if I put Jaws in Speech on Demand and launch Narrator.

Hi,
That might be because Control Panel is set to category view, not small or large icons. To find out, tab around Control Panel until you arrive at the search box, then press Tab to see what JAWS says.

Hi,
Windows+I. Try:
1. Open Settings (Windows+I).
2. Go to "Time and Language".
3. Select Date and Time (first subcategory).
4. Select "Sync now". This will synchronize your clock according to what a
time server says (default is time.windows.com). If this works, your clock
will be set to the correct time unless the hardware clock refuses to honor
what Windows says.
I'm going to forward this to an actual Windows 10 forum in hopes that folks
over there can provide guidance.
Cheers,
Joseph

I see, the reply to whatever someone wrote, but I can't see the latest message in any group message, and as far as any personal messages go, I can't see the latest message in any thread either. If I do a jaws repair, things work for awhile, but then things go haywire again for no apparent reason.  I am running outlook windows ten, jaws  2020 on a windows ten machine.

You have to unload Jaws and reload it it's been doing this for years. If you make any change in control panel this is what you have to do and then jobs will go back to your selected device within jaws itself.

I am using latest Jaws 2020 and windows 10.  I have my sound blaster card selected in Jaws, but when I go to sound settings in windows and change to a different sound card, I lose Jaws speech.

 

I thought if I specifically selected the sound blaster card in Jaws, and not the windows default sound, Jaws would always speak through the sound blaster card, regardless of selection in windows 10 sound settings.

 

I am trying to route Jaws to the sound blaster card and other sounds to the built in realtek sound card.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

 

Also, when I plug in any new sound output device, such as a camera, windows 10 makes this the active sound output device, effectively turning off Jaws speech.

Rick:

Yes, I have speakers into my sound blaster card and headphones into my on board Realtek audio. Today, I plugged in my camera for a Zoom meeting. Jaws stopped speaking through sound blaster and tried speaking through the speaker built in to my camera. It was too quiet to hear, but fortunately, narrator was loud enough to hear through the small camera speaker.

I had to go to windows 10 sound settings and switch the focus back to the sound blaster card, and all audio came through fine.

I still have the sound blaster card checked in Jaws, which should mean that all Jaws audio comes through it, even when a different audio output is selected in windows 10 settings.

I would like to figure out how to make this work properly.

Subject: JAWS and Zoom

 

Dear Listers:

 

I am taking part in a class at church via Zoom.  I know how to join a meeting and how to mute and unmute my microphone, but there are a few things I am having problems with.  First, when you join a meeting, how do you get to the Gallery view using JAWS?  Also, when I get to the list of participants JAWS won’t read the list whenever I arrow up and down.  Also, I know there is a spot where it says, “Find a participant.”  I assume you enter the person’s name and then the person’s name will show.  But if you want to send a message to that participant, how do you do it?  Whenever I find the “Find Participant,” link and enter the person’s name, when I tab again it just gives me the option to either clear the search or cancel.  So what does this mean?

You have to unload Jaws and reload it it's been doing this for years. If you make any change in control panel this is what you have to do and then jobs will go back to your selected device within jaws itself.

Hi,

  Yes, what you want to do is possible.  Not sure why you are having this situation.

Subject: Sound Card Question Windows 10

 

I am using latest Jaws 2020 and windows 10.  I have my sound blaster card selected in Jaws, but when I go to sound settings in windows and change to a different sound card, I lose Jaws speech.

 

I thought if I specifically selected the sound blaster card in Jaws, and not the windows default sound, Jaws would always speak through the sound blaster card, regardless of selection in windows 10 sound settings.

 

I am trying to route Jaws to the sound blaster card and other sounds to the built in realtek sound card.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

 

Also, when I plug in any new sound output device, such as a camera, windows 10 makes this the active sound output device, effectively turning off Jaws speech.

I don't believe so, but why not just turn your monitor or laptop screen off.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

HI All,

 

Is it possible to disable the feature that the screen curtin turns off when you click the mouse? I like to play swamp, but when using the mouse it deactivates the curtin.  Is this possible at all?

 

Thanks.
