Re: usb bluetooth dongle and jaws lost speech

I have a BT dongle and if you plug it in and have a BT device such as a headphone paired to the computer, the sound will be diverted to it. You could probably reroute the sound if you could access the sound mixer but once the bt is connected you must use it for the sound source.

Hi Leonard,
It sounds like your Jaws dongle is being seen as a soundcard by your computer.  Have you updated your dongle with the latest J2019 dongle file?  If not, you'll need to contact VFO / Fs and have it emailed to you.  I don't know if one has to do with the other, and this is the first time I've heard about this behavior by a dongle.  Hopefully someone will have an definitive answer for you.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.

I have a USB Bluetooth dongle for my older Gateway laptop. I am using
Windows 7 and Jaws 2019. When I plug the Dongle in to a USB port I get
no Jaws speech unless I connect my bluetooth headphones. I also have a
focus 40 Braille display connected with USB which still works with Jaws
when the Dongle is connected. Is there something in Jaws settings I can
change so I don't have to keep unplugging the Dongle? The device is
small and I am afraid I will put it down somewhere and won't be able to
locate it.
