Yeah. When we tried to do that, it said no sound device. When the Microsoft
Answer desk went into my devices, there were no sound devices shown.

you could still use n v d a or narrator if you used the wrong sound card setting in jaws. as long as they are also set to use the normal speakers or headphone.

If it works don't fix it

That is what I was thinking of doing.  Will I be able to set JAWS to play through the USB sound adapter?

why not do it the other way around.

you can get a u s b sound adapter. this is not a true sound card.its about the size of a flash drive that plugs into the front u s b port. they usually have a input jack for both a microphone and uses any set of headsets.

they cost about $10 on amazon or ebay.

you can continue to use your pc speakers for music and the headset for speech.

The short answer is Yes, in fact, you have much more control over sound output in Windows 10 than in Windows 7, but it would most likely be easiest to make the USB device your default and then go to Jaws Settings > Utilities > Soundcard and tell Jaws to play on the built-in speakers.

I am about to install JAWS on an Aser laptop with Windows 10 and I want to be able to run a media program like Winamp and not have JAWS speak through the same speakers.  Can I add an external USB sound card that I can plug speakers into for the music media and have JAWS speak through headphones plugged into the laptop's built in jack?  I currently have a Windows 7 desktop with a Sound Blaster card that I play music through while JAWS speaks through the mother board sound jack.

I beg to differ with you. Both Microsoft Disability desk and another sighted user at a computer documented that both the sound drivers and the registry entries were lost. The man at the computer store had to manually restore the registry entries.

Re: Winamp volume

1. Use the Up Arrow while in the main Winamp Window.

2. Check your Volume mixer from the System Tray, and if there is a Winamp volume button, click it. You will only see this volume button if Winamp is currently open. Audio is not required to be playing while looking for the Winamp volume button.

Marty,
I am running a Dell desktop - WIN10 with most of the various outputs going through the on-board sound card. I have an external USB sound card that takes care of JAWS.
I am doing essentially the same thing with a Dell laptop with a damaged headphone plug and it too is successful.
