check if the Yetti is set as the default playback device (system default). if it is not, there is a default button when focused on the Yetti.

Hi Kevin,
To my knowledge, which isn't much, when playing music or system sounds they have to come through the computers internal default soundcard.
I've never been able to figure out how to make music and system sounds use the external soundcard so Jaws could be the only thing using the default internal soundcard.  If someone can tell us how to do this I would be eternally grateful as well.

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.

you can't listen to music thru the Yeti because it is a microphone, an input device for audio. if JAWS is lost after plugging in the Yeti, take a look at what sound card JAWS is set to speak out of:

using NVDA or even Narrator, press insert+j to gain focus to the JAWS user interface:

if JAWS is running as a service (from the systray:

down arrow to and right arrow on sound card.

It didn’t work. JAWS was silent. I’m beginning to suspect driver issues.  I’m on another audio list, and maybe someone there has solved this issue.

Hi again, Phil. Another thing to try is to use the links list (JAWS key plus F7). First find the link, then choose Move to Link. Then, once you know you are moved to the link, choose the link again from the links list, and choose Activate Link, and press ENTER. Sometimes this works to bring up the link when simply pressing ENTER or SPACE doesn't activate the link.

Hello All

 

Having a problem with Jaws as follows:

 

I go to my newspaper server website and log in with no problem.
I initiate the listing of newspaper links and chose a news paper with no problem as well.
The newspaper's listing of sections is read by Jaws and displayed but when a sections link is chosen the listing of articles do not appear. I can still arrow around to the different section link choices but the articles never come up.

 

This happens with Edge, Internet Explorer and Firefox used as browsers.
I am assuming this is a Jaws problem as everything works fine if I switch over to Windoweyes.

 

Has anybody had a similar problem and how did you fix it?

 

TIA

 

Phil

Hi Richard.

 

You’re right about being confused. I want to hear music through the Yeti, and JAWS through the built in sound card in my laptop. In any case, it doesn’t work, at least I can’t figure what’s wrong.

It is early in the morning, so I may just be a little dense, you said: “I thought it would be nice to listen to music through the Yeti and have JAWS come out my external card.”,  but isn’t the Yeti your external card?

 

Or do you have a different external card?

 

If you listen to music through the Yeti, wouldn’t you use the default internal sound card for Jaws?

 

Also confused,

Hi.

 

I have no idea what’s going on. Yesterday I purchased a Yeti USB mic.  It has a built in sound card, so I can route other sounds to it. I thought it would be nice to listen to music through the Yeti and have JAWS come out my external card. Well, it would be nice, except it doesn’t work. I tried this, and JAWS goes silent. I have to set it to either the Yeti or the default device to get speech back. If I change the Windows default sound to my internal card, all is well.

 

Any ideas?

Hi again, Phil. Another thing to try is to use the links list (JAWS key plus F7). First find the link, then choose Move to Link. Then, once you know you are moved to the link, choose the link again from the links list, and choose Activate Link, and press ENTER. Sometimes this works to bring up the link when simply pressing ENTER or SPACE doesn't activate the link.

Hello All

 

Having a problem with Jaws as follows:

 

I go to my newspaper server website and log in with no problem.
I initiate the listing of newspaper links and chose a news paper with no problem as well.
The newspaper's listing of sections is read by Jaws and displayed but when a sections link is chosen the listing of articles do not appear. I can still arrow around to the different section link choices but the articles never come up.

 

This happens with Edge, Internet Explorer and Firefox used as browsers.
I am assuming this is a Jaws problem as everything works fine if I switch over to Windoweyes.

 

Has anybody had a similar problem and how did you fix it?

 

TIA

 

Phil

Hi, Phil. Have you tried JAWS key plus ESCAPE to refresh the screen, not the page? This often resolves these kinds of problems, where you press a link, and the page doesn't seem to change at all.

Also try Chrome  or useing the Jaws cursor. also you can try the Jaws 2021 beta and see if it fixes the issue.

I been noticing that this kind of thing is happening more and more. Sometimes useing the tuch cursor: insert and the numpad plus key twice, will show you the info and once you find it you can focus the PC cursor on it. But this is hit or miss at best.

That is what I have suspected.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to have access to his computer as he doesn't have a screen reader and is not really tech savy.  I have put the files in my Dropbox public folder and sent him a link via email.

Did you wait for the files to finish transferring? If there was a lot of them it would take a minute or 3. Clicking on the remove drive before the files finished could result in the transfer being canceled.

The other thing that I was thinking, are these files being copied from dropbox? If so, sometimes there is a dialog box that opens to ask you if you want to copy the files without their properties. If you don’t know this is open it will copy the folders but not the files. Just a suggestion. If you need any help, reply

How about if you zipped the folders up and sent them as an attachment in an email?

Are you using the built-in security app so come on those little drives? If I was you I would do a full format on the drive then copy the files. If it’s not the little security app on the drive. I’ve never seen this before and I don’t know what you can do.
