I was going to suggest the same thing Tom. Worst case it doesn't help - recheck the box.
Good luck.

Hi there. In zoom, you can adjust your settings thus. Press tab until you hear setting button, wack enter or, press the space bar to activate, arrow down to audio, tab until you hear adjust your microphone volume automatically, uncheck this box. Your microphone audio issue should then be resolved.



I hope this helps.

Subject: Strange Zoom Volume Issue



Hello, everyone.



Recently, I have been doing some online teaching via Zoom, and have noticed a very strange issue with my microphone volume.



For these meetings, I use a headset with an attached microphone. I have experienced this issue with two different headsets. Both headsets are connected via a USB port.



My issue is that when I'm teaching, my microphone suddenly looses volume for no apparent reason.



I can't identify a consistent pattern to these failures, but I'm told my volume suddenly disappears to the point that my audio is unintelligible.



Has anyone else had this issue in Zoom meetings, and if so, how did you solve it?



Is there something I can do to keep my volume levels more stable?



I'm using Jaws 2021 here on a Windows 10 PC. I also put Jaws in Speech On Demand mode as I'm conducting my classes, because they involve screen sharing, and I want to minimize Jaws speech when I'm navigating the screen. Fortunately, I have a HIMS Polaris Notetaker that I can use as a Braille display.



Thanks for any help!

Hi Thomas!


Thank you very much. It confirms that it should be possible. In the area where I live we don't have as many options when it comes to licencing Freedom Scientific products as in Canada or US. So I don't know if it's possible to get licences the way you describe it. Any way in our small school it'll be acceptable to use VPN since there'll not be many situations where they won't have access to Internet. Right now the setup is very simple. A laptop with the licence server and the clients with full admin rights connected to the same network. We don't use domains any more since the students net is completely separated from the workes network. I can see that Windows 10 have a built in VPN server. So my plan is to make sure the server always get teh same IP from the DHCP and ask to forward the specific ports neeede for that. Then I hope it'll work by connecting with the built in VPN clients at the clients PC's. I just hope it's possible to configure the clients or the server so that the VPN is used only for the licence and not for Internet trafic.

Jacob,

You will be able to authorize your network copies of JAWS over a VPN as long as the clients can reach the license server. You will want to set the system environment variable LSFORCEHOST to the domain name or IP address of your license server. The clients will need ongoing access to the server as JAWS phones home regularly.

This setup is pretty frustrating as you or your users will constantly be getting dumped into demo mode whenever the VPN goes away. I reached out to FS about this issue and they set up my organization to be in their sponsored software program. The rep stated that this is available to organizations who have network licenses of JAWS, Fusion, or ZoomText. This way anyone with an email address at our domain can get an annual subscription to JAWS which will continue to be renewed as long as they are with the organization. These annual licenses of JAWS are not tied to the VPN at all. They will continue to work on subways, airplanes, Etc.

As far as I know this is all legal and above board as it was a result of me reaching out to FS tech support.

I hope this is helpful, and good luck!

Hi!


In the job we use network licences for JAWS and ZoomText. It works fine but if a client leave the building the licence is ofcourse lost. Does any one know if it's possible to get access to a licence if I install a VPN server on the PC that host the licence server? Then the clients can connect via VPN when they're out of range on our wifi to grab a licence.
Also one more important question. If it's possible will it be legal then? The meaning is ofcourse only to give access to the licences for our own PC's.

Your best bet is to mute everybody else unless they are actively speaking, Zoom has some anti echo functionality that will lower the volume of Microphones that seem to be hearing content from another user. Or if you have sound output from the meeting on another device that your USB Microphone might be picking up.

If neither of these seems to be the cause, then I would suggest trying not to use JAWS 2021, as it has several new sound processing functions, and perhaps one of thee is getting in the way of Zoom.

Even when I have good internet connection, sometimes when I select chrome it will not populate.  I have to go back and select it 3 or four times before it finally takes off.  Then, at times, I will be on a web page or in a program doing something important like buying something, and it throws me out for no reason.

 

At other times, it says it can not find a page that I know is there and goes into this thing about secure and unsecure sites.  These have been secure well-known sites like amazon so why does it do that? 

Finally, I have chrome save some of my passwords.  Anyway, while I am trying to read an article or pay a bill or something, or write a birthday wish on facebook, parts of words from sites I have visited appear over and over.  I have to press escape escape to get rid of them  sometimes several times.  I see the words change password appear  in the middle of an article about health.  It is just weird, all this stuff which I have not saved bleeding into completely unrelated tasks and places.  So, is it jaws or chrome or google or windows seven or what?  Why would installing jaws 2021 suddenly make these problems worse?  I would just like some understandable answers.  Whenever you try to talk to freedom scientific, they act like they do not know what you are talking about or that they don’t handle those kinds of questions, etc.  So give me some opinions please!  Should I ditch chrome?

Hello,

 

I had to disable the JAWS voice assistant from listening for the Sharkey keyword in JAWS 2021 in order to get my Zoom mic volume to act normally. When this was on, my mic volume was so low that others could hardly hear me, to low to use. I don’t know if this is your problem or not. I hope this helps someone.

Hi again, Ron. After just writing to you, I discovered that, contrary to
what I had said earlier, I did have the procedure for moving the JAWS
program to the top of the list of programs that start when Windows starts.
Below is that procedure. Be sure to carefully note the programs you uncheck
above JAWS, so that you can recheck them again after your computer restarts.

1. Press, Windows key + R, to open the run dialog.
2. Type, msconfig and press ENTER.
3. Press, CONTROL plus TAB, until you get to the, Start-up Page / Tab.
4. Arrow down the list, & uncheck any items above, JAWS Freedom Scientific,
on the Start-up Page / Tab.
Note: Only uncheck the items / programs above JAWS Freedom Scientific, &
nothing else. Pay close attention to what you uncheck because you are going
to
recheck these items / programs shortly.
5. Tab to the, Okay, button, press the spacebar, & tab 1 time to, Restart, &
press enter to restart your computer.
6. Once your computer is booted up repeat steps 1 thru 3, & you will notice
that JAWS Freedom Scientific is now at the top of the list.
7. Now, arrow down the list of items / programs on the Start-up Page / Tab,
and check the items / programs that you unchecked previously.
8. TAB to the, Okay, button, press the SPACEBAR, and TAB 1 time to, Restart,
and press ENTER to restart your computer.

Now Jaws should start on the Windows log-in screen when your computer
starts.

Hi, Ron. One thing you might try is the following. It has worked for some
users.

1. put the following line into your clipboard, and run it with Windows key
plus R

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

2. Find a JAWS shortcut to the version of JAWS which you are running on your
desktop, and copy it into the directory which came up after running the
above command.

Some years ago, someone also gave a sequence for moving JAWS farther up in
the startup sequence, although I do not now have this sequence of commands.
Maybe someone on this list still has it, and could repost it. One of these
two procedures just may cause JAWS to start before signin.
