RE: Jaws volume

Lots of luck, I have wanted that feature since I purchased Jaws in 1998.

Thanks to all who responded. I guess I'll check out if there is a place or
a way to let Freedom Scientific know that some people really miss the  old
feature where you could change Jaws volume separately.
 
Thanks again,

Subject: Jaws volume


Is there a way to change the volume  of Jaws, without changing the volume of
the rest of the computer system? My  daughter uses sticky keys, as well as
Jaws 7.1. 

Sticky keys is a  Microsoft accessibility feature, especially for people who
can only use one  hand. Here's an example of how it works: Normally, to type
a capital letter, you  hold down the shift key while you hit the letter you
want capitalized. If sticky  keys is turned on, you can hit the shift key
with one stroke, and then  separately hit the key you want capitalized. The
shift key "sticks". It also  beeps, so that you know you have hit a sticky
key.

The problem we are  having with my daughter's new laptop, is that when she
turns up the volume loud  enough to hear Jaws, the beep from sticky keys is
way too loud. She can't even  use the laptop with headphones because the
beep really hurts the ears.

We  can't seem to find a way to turn up Jaws, without turning up the beep of
sticky  keys.

Any ideas? Am I correct that Jaws does not have its own volume  control?
Thanks,
Valerie Crockett
