Hello, I’m using the most recent versions of windows10 and Jaws2020. I used the Chrome and FireFox browsers. I go to onedrive.com and hit enter on sign on. I then enter my email and tab to next. The next screen asks me which account I want to use. I hit enter on the one and it just sits on that location. Two days ago it worked fine as after I pressed enter on the specific account it would then ask for my password. Now That never comes up. I couldn’t find an error message anywhere on the screen. I called Microsoft accessibility. The person was able to get to the password screen without any problem. I asked what she did and she just said press enter on the specific account. She must have done something else as that didn’t work. I then used the jaws cursor and did a double left click on the account. Then the password field came up. I entered the password and pressed enter. I was taken to the address bar and couldn’t get off it. Any thoughts? Kevin

The best way I have found to use Jaws with Zoom without everyone hearing Jaws is to use a head set with a microphone.

With your Zoom client open, Tab to the tab list and go to the Home tab.  Tab to the Share Options button dropdown and hit Space.  Down arrow to the Share Computer Sound check box and hit Space to check it.  Now, what ever you hear from your computer will also be recorded and heard by your meeting participants.  You may want to do a test to check the levels, as JAWS may be too loud.  HTH

Hello all,

I am trying to record a Zoom meeting and I need my Jaws voice to be heard. When I play a practice recording, the Jaws voice is really low in the background. I have tried turning my volume up to 100 percent with no success. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

Cynthia,  That will require that you have a separate sound card for JAWS, so you can plug in headphones to hear JAWS without your meeting participants hearing JAWS.  You can get a USB sound adaptor that has jacks for a microphone and headphones from Amazon for around $12.  You would then set JAWS to play through that and your computer sound would still be played in the normal way.

I don’t want Jaws to speak differently, I just want to change the dictionary language.

Documents can be multilingual. So the dictionary and speech output can change within each document. So, first go into your Outlook/Word settings and make sure your default language is US/Canadian. But then if you are replying to a message from somebody in USA it could probably be switched back to US.
In JAWS there is a setting to not only switch synthesizers on language but on dialect. If you click this, then JAWS should speak differently for US English and UK English and Indian English. I am not sure if there are any speech synthesizers for Canadian  dialects. So perhaps my suggestions of toggle that JAWS setting won't help you to recognize you have switched dialects.

Only way I know is to have Jaws on a different sound cardand zoom
shares your default sound card.

when she knows that the UAC comes up, she can right arrow and press the space bar.
some say it is more of a pain to deal with, but I would recommend not to disable or lower the level of protection the UAC provides.

Or you can change the User account control settings to stop it from coming up in the first place.

Hello,

 

Have you gone into the Settings of Zoom and opened the Audio Settings? You may have Auto Gain Control on and this may be causing recording volumes to be on the low side.

 

Another thing you should check and that is do you have Audio Ducking turn on in JAWS.

 

If you are running the public beta of JAWS 2021 you may want to turn the Voice Assist off.

 

That just some thoughts to look into.

JM & David,

           If you have focus on the actual YouTube player, the full screen keyboard shortcut, f, will make the YouTube player go full screen.  It is a toggle so hitting it again reverts back to the player being embedded on the YouTube page.

           If you have high resolution video, going full screen may be helpful.  If you have low resolution video, it can make matters worse as everything becomes very pixellated/fuzzy.  But you can't know what a given video will look like any more easily than by throwing it to full screen and then going back if it doesn't suit you.
