Hi Fernando, Net bat, & List Members,

Okay I just tried assigning keystrokes to, increase / decrease system volume 
and increase / decrease voice volume, without success.  When invoking the 
assigned keystrokes the audio states it's doing the assigned task, but in 
reality ain't a damn thing happenin!  LOL  LOL

So in short, with my testing anyways, if you want to hear your assigned 
keystrokes increase / decrease percentages announced audibly by JAWS, that's 
exactly what you'll get, audible announcements, but the volume doesn't 
change for either system sounds or JAWS volume.  This was running Widows 7 
with JAWS 16 thru 2018.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Fernando,

To be honest I don't use any keystrokes for controlling volume.  I run 2
soundcards, 1 for system sounds & 1 for Jaws.  This way I don't run into
sound override problems.  I should have tested the steps I posted, but
assuming they would work correctly if assigned was a poor assumption from
what Net bat states.  On second thought, when I get some time I'll play
around since Net bat is running Widows 10, and I'm running Widows 7, to see
if volume keystroke assignment might work differently with Widows 7.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi net bat66 and Mike,

Does this procedure works when using Eloquence? In current JAWS versions
there is no Volume slider when setting a voice profile with Eloquence,
unlike with other synths like SAPI 5 or any Vocalizer variant.
As I remember from older JAWS versions, this control when using Eloquence
was simply a read-only edit box which said “Use your system's volume.”

Thanks in advance!

forwarded from mike bee on the main jaws list.
1. Open Keyboard Manager without any applications / programs open to make
sure you land on, Default, when you open Keyboard Manager.  Do this by
pressing, Jaws key + F2, press the letter, K, until you have Keyboard
Manager highlighted, & press enter.  If you don't have, Default, highlighted
when opening the keyboard manager press the letter, D, until you do.

2. Find the following to assign keystrokes to them:
DecreaseVoiceVolume,  None
Decrease system volume,  None
IncreaseVoiceVolume,  None
Increase system Volume,  None
*Note:   None, means that there is not a keystroke assigned to these
functions
/ tasks.

3. On each of these functions / tasks press, Control + h, to open an edit
field to insert the keystroke you would like to use for this particular
function / task.  *Note:  Make sure not to press any other keys other than
the keystroke you want!
4. After entering your desired keystroke tab one time, and there's a
checkbox for assigning this keystroke to desktop keys only, usually people
will uncheck this.

5. Tab to, Okay, Press ENTER, and choose OK in the confirmation dialog which
appears.

6.  You'll be returned to the list view of scripts.  Use the same steps with
the other functions / tasks listed above.

7. Close Keyboard Manager with, Alt + F4.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi Richard,



I got one better than your way to create a shortcut.

All you have to do both in Windows 7 or Windows 10 is bring up either the
run command with Windows Key+R or simply the search box with the Windows
key.

Now type sndvol and press enter and bingo, you are on the volume control.

I have read you can add a -f flag, e.g. sndvol -f to bring u p the master
volume directly but I found that even just sndvol will do this.

Here is the Jaws speech history as to what this sounds like, first without
and then with the -f switch, I am using just the Windows key/Cortana search
box and not the run command, note that the Jaws speech history gives you the
result after you type every letter of “sndvol”, if you type it fast you
never hear most of that, but I left it in just to show it:



Cortana

S, Search box edit

Sn, Snipping Tool, Desktop app

snd, See web results, Press right to open preview

sndv, See web results, Press right to open preview

sndvo, See web results, Press right to open preview

sndvol, Run command – this is where I pressed enter

Volume Mixer - Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) dialog

Speakers

Speakers

up down slider

83 – I am now pressing the down arrow several times and again the up arrow

82 percent

81 percent

80 percent

81 percent

82 percent

83 percent



Now here is what it sounds like with the -f switch added after SndVol, I
left out all the suggestions which come up after each letter and go straight
to the final one:

Cortana

sndvol -f, Run command

dialog

up down slider

83

82 percent

81 percent



Only difference seems to be that adding the -f switch doesn’t verbalize
Volume Mixer - Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) dialog, Speakers,
Speakers and instead it says right away the volume percentage.

You could of course create a shortcut with “sndvol” or “sndvol -f” but I
personally find pressing the Windows key and typing sndvol is just about as
fast as pressing Control+Alt+V or whatever shortcut you would assign the
shortcut..

I guess another thing you can do is create the volume shortcut and put it on
the taskbar, if you had it at the very left then pressing Windows Key+1
would do the trick as well.

I just tried it using SndVol -f for the shortcut which I called “Volume”,
then I pinned it to the taskbar and dragged it to the first position  and
when I pressed Windows+1 Jaws instantly says “Dialogue, up down slider, 81”.



Regards,

Sieghard

I'm not at my computer right now, but is there some kind of audio ducking
setting in Jaws 2018?

Maybe do insert-v and type audio in the search box and see what comes up.

Here is what I found:

Yes,you can create a Master Volume Shortcut and also assign a Shortcut Key.

Right click on a empty area on desktop, and click on New and Shortcut.

Paste the following in to the location of the item area:-

�

%windir%\System32\SndVol.exe -f 49825268

�

Click Next button and give a name to the Shortcut and click Finish.

�

Now You right click on it and select Properties.

�

Click Shortcut tab.

�

Assign your desired shortcut key like F8 or F9 in the Shortcut Key area.

�

Click OK/Apply.

HTH,

See if your speakers are in the system tray. If they are, hit enter on them,
and see if you can open up the master volume. If you can you can lower your
volume. You can also do it in control panel in sound link. Jim

Hello all: I was working with another person in a remote session on my Win10
laptop, and JAWS was very loud. ��I was frantically trying to find a
hotkey for regulating that, but there seems to be nothing anymore. I checked
in the JAWS commands as well. Anyone have a clue?

Subject: [JAWS-Users] Changeing JAWS' volume

Hello listers,



I m using the latest version of Windows and JAWS.



Is it possible to change JAWS  volume with a hotkey without changing the
overall volume of the computer?
