moderated JAWS and phone in the same input


Marty Hutchings
 

When you say that the mix changes when you plug in the computer to AC power tells me that this may have something to do with the power profile settings of the laptop. Sometimes, I have heard that things get reconfigured to save power when on battery power to save energy.



Love in Christ
Marty
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:12, 13

Okay. So not an issue with your computer. Interesting. Without knowing more
about your setup I think I'd just be guessing at this point. But it's fairly
safe to say nothing you're actually doing is doing it.

So far it happens on two machines, the lap top and the desktop. I don't
know how to shield it. Would a toroid help?

We have put together a mixer which hears both JAWS and the phone,
allowing a person to speak to the phone without hearing JAWS at all.
it works beautifully with a lap top computer on battery. when
we plug in the computer, though, the whole thing looses its
perspective. You can make a phone call, but the guy on the receiving
end can't hear it. I have no idea why plugging in destroys the
stinkin' mix, but it sure as the world does. If he could just use a
lap top on battery, that would work.

Hmmmmmm.

He is looking for a job in customer service. He needs to be able to

one ear is hard to sell, unless of course he can point to a

Be sure your using a duel channel device. If you can hear both, this is
good. However, you also need be sure you are connected properly to the audio
port, as well. And, as previously mentioned, that the settings are all
correct with microphone.

As suggested earlyier use the standard headset provided by the company with a earbud under it. The guy will hear the customer and jaws and the customer will only hear the guy not jaws. You will need a usb earbud and direct jaws to send audio to it and that is it.

Hi All,

I know this is a low-tech solution, but it is easy and cheap. Use a pair of
earbuds for JAWS, and put the phone headset on over that. Works like a
charm. If you find JAWS is too prominent, just take out one of the earbuds.

Is there a way to trick it so that JAWS and the phone come out of the

that make both ears the same? Does the headset have a mike that
