Yo bro,
He wasn't talking about the Jaws dongle, it's blue-tooth.

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.
