When I checked the audio tab, I have 2 choices for play back which are modem 0 
line and sigmatel.  No sound card is mentioned.  I am using a Dell E3100 and 
Windows XP with Jaws 6.20.

  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

    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.
