Hi Jim,
You can adjust the microphone volume level on its properties dialog. This is 
the same dialog that includes the listen tab where you set the listen to this 
device check box. On the levels tab of this dialog, there's a volume slider.
Alternatively, as Tony has already suggested, you could reduce the Jaws volume 
in the volume mixer dialog.

Thanks tony...
That did the trick!!!
Now I am recording me and jaws together.
My voice comes in quiter then the jaws voice.
If I amplify, then I sound good and Jaws is to loud.
Do you have a trick that can make my voice and jaws record at the same 
I feel like a pest, thanks again for all you guys and your patience and 
kindness that you have show me on this list...

to Start and type Sound. Under the Control Panel row header you should see 
“Sound” press enter.
to the recording tab.
your microphone input in the list view. Tab to Properties and press 
to the Listen tab.
the Listen to this device checkbox.
and select the soundcard that JAWS plays through as the device to listen 
and activate the OK button on this dialog, and on the original Sound 

Audacity, select “Stereo Mix” from the JAWS soundcard as your recording 

trick here is making sure your microphone can be heard through the same 
soundcard that JAWS is coming through. Then you can record them

OK, time for 
When I choose stereo 
mix in the preferences of audacity, I record Jaws 
Please tell me what 
the imput and output devices should be set to, both in the sound dialog and in 
the audacity program.
In the sound dialog, 
recording tab, do I check the box in the stereo mix, to use this device, I am 
confused with whick one to check.
Also, my windows 
sounds and music go out through my Bose usb audio, Jaws uses my sound card, you 
see two sets of speakers.
Let me try to simplify 
my question.
In the sound dialog, 
use this device checkbox, which device do I check to use? if I understand 
correctly, the answer is the stereo mix.
Also, in that stereo 
mix dialog, which device is the playback device.
In audacity 
preferences which is the record device, the stereo mix I believe, what do I set 
the playback device to?
Thanks again from a 
new user of audacity.
I am running windows 
7, 32 bit, latest Jaws, Jaws is using the sound card of my computer, music and 
windows sounds come out of the bose usb speakers.

Thank you Dang Manh 
I went to the acer 
sight and checked for an updated sound card driver and found a realtech sound 
Now I can see the 
stereo mix you were talking about.
I am going to give it 
a try right now.
thanks again for all 
your help...

This is an e-mail I replied to other person afiew week ago.
If you use 
Windows vista or 7, do the folowing step
Open control panel
Navigate to recording page
Tab to the list view, and hit the 
application key
Down arrow to the options called show disable devices, and 
press enter. You should see the stereo mix in the list. Note
If you hear: 
show disable devices check, then you don't need to hit enter.
Not all sound 
card have stereo mix, so don't worry if you don't see it in the list
that help.
