  your lines should read as follows:

  Synth1Name=eloq
  Synth1LongName=Eloquence for Jaws
  Synth1Driver=eloq
  Synth1Port=SoundMAX Digital Audio! Wave Device

  hth.

    Thanks for that Allan.  I tried it but I have no luck.  I attached my 
JFW.INI below:

    Synth1Name=eloq
    Synth1LongName=Eloquence Software
    Synth1Driver=eloq
    Synth1Port=SoundMAX Digital Audio! Wave Device

    Allan, I want jaws use my built-in sound card which is "SoundMAX Digital 
Audio".  So, I put on the fourth line, "Synth1Port=SoundMAX Digital Audio! Wave 
Device".

    My external sound card is "Creative SB Live 24 Bit External Sound card".

      hi,
      no, what you need to do is, add 1 more line at the bottom. e.g.

      Synth1Name=eloq
      Synth1LongName=Eloquence for JAWS
      Synth1Driver=eloq
      Synth1Port=SB Live! Wave Device

      remember, if your .ini file is shown the number others then 1, the 4th 
line must follow the number. e.g.

      Synth3Name=eloq
      Synth3LongName=Eloquence for JAWS
      Synth3Driver=eloq
      Synth3Port=SB Live! Wave Device

        Thanks for the instruction.

        In step 3, the list of lines says,

        Synth1Name=eloq
        Synth1LongName=Eloquence for JAWS
        Synth1Driver=eloq

        My question is, do I need to change the"Synth1Driver=eloq
        " by replacing the line in step 4?

        I just want to verify the procedures u gave so I'm sure that I'm on the 
right track.

        Weinston.

        This is taken from the Freedom Scientific website and should help you 
to set up your soundcards.

        Question:

        I have two sound cards on my computer. How do I make sure JAWS uses the 
one I want?

        Answer:

        Many JAWS users who also use music or audio production software want 
JAWS and Eloquence to speak through one sound card, while 
      using the other for their
        production work. To do this, you need to edit a file called JFW.ini and 
install the updated Eloquence Speech driver in the 
      accompanying zip file.

        Editing the jfw.ini file:

        1. Using My Computer or Windows Explorer, browse your hard drive to the 
currently running version of JAWS and find the jfw.ini 
      file in that folder.

        2. Press ENTER to open.

        3. You should find some lines that read:

        Synth1Name=eloq

        Synth1LongName=Eloquence for JAWS

        Synth1Driver=eloq

        The number doesn't matter, it may be 1, 2, or 3, but it must be the 
same for all entries for Eloquence.

        4. Add the following line after the driver line: Synth1Port=SB Live! 
Wave Device Of course, you need to make sure that the synth 
      number matches the other
        lines, so that if the Driver line read:

        Sytn3Driver=eloq

        Then the port line would read:

        Synth3Port=SB Live! Wave Device

        The text after the = sign in the Port line comes from Control 
Panel/Sound & Multimedia/Audio tab It must be one of the entries 
      that can be chosen for Preferred
        Playback device.

        5. Save your changes and exit Notepad.

        Now you must install the updated driver.As long as JAWS is running and 
speaking through Eloquence, eloq.jls cannot be simply 
      overwritten when unzipping
        the file. You will need to switch to NoSpeech or MS SAPI to get the 
eloq.jls to overwrite properly.

        1. Download the file from

        ftp://ftp.freedomscientific.com/users/hj/private/eloq.zip

        2. Unzip the zip file into the root of the active JAWS directory where 
you made the change to the jfw.ini file.

        3. Restart JAWS and it should now be speaking from the sound card you 
wanted.

        4. If not, make sure the entries are correct in the jfw.ini file and 
that your sound card is indeed installed correctly. Most 
      audio and music production
        software allows you to select a sound device for it as well, so it can 
use one sound card while JAWS uses another.

        Hope this helps.

        Stephen

          stephen,

          Seams, you are using two sound cards with JAWS.  May I ask you about 
setting up two sound cards using JAWS?

          I'm using a laptop wit built-in sound card and I have one external 
sound card.  I would like Jaws to use the built-in sound card 
      while the window sound skims will go to the external sound card.

          I don't know how to do that.  So, I'm hoping you could help me.  
Thanks in advance.

            one answer is to purchase a second soundcard.

            i have done this and would never go back to a single soundcard as 
the 2 work really well enabling me to use jaws at what ever 
      volume i want and also all other audio and window sounds at their own 
level.

              This problem has been posted before, but till now there hasn't 
been a solution, the problem being that of Jaws using system 
      volume and not having its own.
                If you're listening to audio, as I was this morning, in that 
instance the main menu presentation on Jaws 8, and you turn 
      up the volume to listen the jaws volume relative to the volume you're 
hearing will be very high. It would be very useful to be able 
      to turn down the jaws volume so it doesn't blast out at you when it 
speaks something that pops up on the screen.
                                    John.
