Yeah jaws has been doing that for years… You just unload jaws completely and reload it every time you switch sound cards that way.

I really appreciate you trying to help, but that’s what I originally tried to do.  I have the Yeti as the default card, and when I go into JAWS and set it to my PC internal card, I lose speech. Same thing happens if I have the PC as the default, and I set JAWS to use the Yeti…no speech.

Okay, now you can have Jaws play through the internal soundcard.  Whatever soundcard is set to the default is the soundcard that music and system sounds will play through.  With the Yeti being the default soundcard now setting Jaws to run through the computer's internal soundcard is done in the Jaws context menu / utilities as Mario explained earlier.


Take care and stay safe.  Mike.

Hi again.

I'm not sure if I'm in the same place, but in the Volume Control, I select the Yeti as the playback device. There's a Set to Default button. I hit that, and sounds come through the headphones I have plugged into the Yeti.

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’re right about being confused. I want to hear music through the

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?

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?

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.

Make sure you have your speakers plugged into the correct port of the Yeti soundcard and make sure it's not muted in Playback devices or the volume mixer.

Hi again.

 

I did the reverse experiment, and it would be more the situation I’d use. I tried having my internal Realtek laptop card for everything but JAWS, and I tried to change JAWS to use the Yeti. 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. Richard, if you can think of something, feel free to let me know. I like this mic, and the sound card part of it is secondary.

 

Thanks in advance for 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.

Subject: Jaws and internet link problem

 

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

moderated More on the Yeti vs internal computer sound card.

Hi again.

 

I did the reverse experiment, and it would be more the situation I’d use. I tried having my internal Realtek laptop card for everything but JAWS, and I tried to change JAWS to use the Yeti. 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. Richard, if you can think of something, feel free to let me know. I like this mic, and the sound card part of it is secondary.

 

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Hi Richard.

 

I’m using the latest JAWS 2020, Eloquence, I think Reed. It’s with Windows 10 2004, latest build.

Which Jaws synthesizer and voice are you using?

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.

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.
