Another thing to try is the "do not map through this device" option.

Here is a message that describes the steps.

There should be an option in device manager for the device. On my headset
it's called do not map through this device, and checking that makes it never
become default unless you tell it to. It's a little buried in there under
USB audio device, properties, and USB audio device again for some reason.


ps. Don't forget to try modifying the jaws.ini file method. here is info on doing that.
Ignore the part about replacing the drivers.  That is for version 4 of Jaws.

I don't have Magic Jack so I can't comment exactly on the problem you are

However, the problem might be that when Magic Jack is plugged in to your
system, it takes over as the default sound device on your system. To verify
this and change it, go to the control panel and check the sounds and audio
devices dialog. Go to the audio tab and see what device is shown as the
default. If it shows as the Magic Jack device, change it back to the sound
card in your system and see if this corrects the problems you are having.

I hope this helps,

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.

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.
