Re: Headphones not working


Hi Mike,
The problem is that he is referring to the built-in headphone jack, not a USB headset.  And the headphone jack may not always be displayed as a separate audio device by Windows depending on the sound card.

Hi Walt,
If you choose the headset as the default soundcard, all sounds will come through the headset, with Jaws anyways.  With Jaws, whenever you plug a USB headset in, Jaws is supposed to see it as the default soundcard from what I understand.  1 thing I didn't realize when I posted my earlier reply was that Bill said he plugged his headset into the headphone jack, so I don't know if he's using a regular jack, or a USB port.  Also, I have Jaws running running through 1 soundcard & my system sounds running through a 2nd soundcard, so I use the steps I spoke of earlier for selecting the Jaws default soundcard, & the Sounds / Playback page to select my soundcard for system sounds.
Take care.

Mike -
But won't that only cause the headphones to work for JAWS and no other application? Not sure, only asking, since I've never used this, myself -- but since it's a JAWS utility/function, I wonder ......

Hi Bill,
I didn't catch what screenreading program you're running, so if you're running Jaws try the following:
1. Open the Jaws context menu.
2. Arrow down to, Utilities, & press enter.
3. Arrow down to, Soundcards submenu, & press enter.
4. Arrow to your headset, however it's listed, & press enter.
Take care.
