Bob and Petro,
I don't have any suggestions beyond Petro's. The Audio Driver, as opposed to 
the Windows Audio Driver, should isolate the music from JAWS. I don't 
specifically test RM against third party software such as JAWS, but this sounds 
like a system specific problem. You might want to investigate how JAWS is 
accessing the audio hardware or try the USB sound card that Petro recommends.

Double check this one more time. Open RM 6, press enter on the Settings button 
to open its properties. Tab a few times until you hear input and locate the 
text called audio drive in the combo box then tab to the OK and press enter to 
save. Focus will now be on RM6 main user intrface. Choose the close button to 
shut down RM 6. Locate RM 6 icon on your desktop and press enter to start up RM 
6 again. Do a test recording and use your screen reader to see if it records 
your screen reader's speech. Do you have one sound card or more? To eliminate 
this issue and my opinion the simpliest is to buy a external USB sound card. 
The one I have is plug n play and sold by a blind dealer. No CD or software is 
used to install this sound card. JAWS will use your internal sound card while 
this external USB sound card will play all your media like music streams. You 
tell Windows 7 in sound settings, playback and recording to use this external 
USB sound card and to be the default card. This USB sound card has a 1/8 inch 
connector that you connect a 1/8 inch cable to it and the other end of this 
cable connects to a speaker that has a 1/8 inch input so you can listen to your 
music. You can turn down the speaker's volume all the way down and your music 
still gets recorded for you. I am sure Dr. Wilson will contact you. Do you have 
Skype? I am waiting for these new headphones and we can talk and possibly fix 
your issue. If you don't have Skype you can call me by phone. Eastern time 
zone. Contact me at
for my phone number.
We could also try JAWS tandem session.

 Hi Petro.  I  did as you suggested and   changed the input  source on my 
windows 7 machine to audio  driver.
Un  fortunately, RM 6 is still recording JAWS along with the audio I want to 
 I didn't have this problem in  earlier versions of Replay Music.
  What can I do?  It seems like other people are using Win 7 and RM 6 without 
this issue.
Could my problem be happening because of earlier versions of Replay Music  
conflicting with RM 6?
I remember that once I got a tool from Applian that removed all traces  of RM.
 I'm wondering if there   might be drivers etc. that are overlapping, and 
fowling up the functioning of RM 6.

I would like to try getting rid of my Replay Music Suite  and starting over 
clean if nescessary.  But even  this action  means  I need to know that the 
whole suite is gone before re-installing.

So,  what should I do?

Hi Bob
 Which Windows operating system do you have?
Go to Replay Music 6 settings and change the driver to audio driver.
Its called the Input source.
JAWS does not get recorded this way.

Also if you use Windows Media Player you may have to disable to plugins via 
WMP's Tools menu with alt+t and open the plugins and press enter on two plugins 
that are chec marked,
Applian Recorder
RM Plugin
The above two may conflict when playing your files when RM 6 is open and 
running and you choose to play a file.

     How can I record with Jaws and RM  6  without getting JAWS along with the 
audio I'm trying to capture?
 In earlier versions of  Replay Music It didn't  matter if I moved around the 
screen.  Replay would  not  interfere. Now  Jaws is picked up with  anything I  
I'm  using JAWS  15 and RM 6.
      Isn't there a better way to get a clean recording with Replay  Music than 
 having to disable system    sounds every time I use the program?
   And why is it that it worked   so much better in older versions?  Is it 
JAWS?   Or is it Replay Music that accounts for the problem? ?
