Sounds like Magic Jack is acting like a second sound card. So, try using the method from Jaws support for two sound cards.

That is really strange. How, then, do you get calls if the phone is being used for Jaws? Do you think that ear phones plugged in to the computer would work?

 Hello Katherine

 I have magic jack as well.
This will only work when you plug the magic jack on to your computer. What you have to do is pick up your telephone and listen to jaws through the phone it self. Note: as long as you have the magic jack plugged in to the U.S.B. port; Jaws will only work by listening to it through the telephone..
 The purpose of prayer is not to get what we want,
 but to become what God wants.
 Regards, Thomas.

I just received Magic Jack in the mail and plugged it in to the computer. It plugs in to a JSB port and then in to the telephone. It allows you to use your phone, sort of like Vonage but using the phone line. When I first plugged it in, Jaws started to speak and then stopped.

Does anyone know if using this sort of phone program would have an effect on Jaws? When I unplugged the Magic Jack from the USB prot, Jaws came back. I'm sort of afraid to plug the phone converter box back in. Any help with this would be appreciated.
