Hi All,
I cannot think of any recent changes/installations which could have caused 
the below problems.

I am using Windows XP Pro with SP3 and JfW10.

A recent phenomenon appears to have developed.  Initially, the symptoms were 
that sounds generated by the PC, e.g. synthetic speech or Windows 
sounds/prompts, stopped working, whilst other audio files such as MP3s 
continued to work fine.  A complete reinstall of Jaws seems to have 
ameliorated but not cured the problem with sound.  Now however the faulty 
behaviour has mutated!  Sometimes, whilst 'seeing' the Focus 40 I have 
connected for soft Braille via USB, the driver does not appear to operate, 
i.e. the display stays blank.  On other occasions, the mouse will prompt 
Jaws to generate speech and the Braille display will work, but input via the 
keyboard does not work.  At this very moment, I am having a rare period of 
all three, keyboard, speech and Braille Display working together at the same 

Any suggestions as to cause and/or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes,

Mike Higgins,
