Hi All,

I am having issues streaming radio to my I phone 5S, buffering and generally
cutting out.

I am not having the same issue streaming on the same wifi circuit to stand
alone internet radios or laptops.



Does anyone know if the streaming technology in later I phones is
significantly better than that in a 5S or whether I am unlikely to improve
performance in streaming even with a newer I phone.

I want to continue using an I phone as use a VPN for certain listening.



Thanks



Colin

Hi,
Yes that's true, but it doesn't switch before there is a driver running so
she will be able to simply plugin something for speech, and then configure
jaws and default afterwards.

Brian,

While I would not disagree in general, I think it is fair to say that there
are still issues where plugging in a sound card switches all sounds to that
card until one resets the default. This is manageable, but she may have to
sort that out depending if she wants only JAWS to go to the second card. I
don't know if different cards handle the default issue differently or not,
though.

Best regards,

Steve

Hi group,



I'm looking for a 2nd sound card I can use with Jaws. I've looked at a few
but people mention that the card will bypass the internal sound card. So, I
need a little clarification here, as I thought all sound cards were
basically the same, except for quality and features, of course. I'm just
looking for a card for under $20 that I can run my Jaws through and not
bypass my internal sound card.



Thanks guys,

Re: Seeking 2nd sound card recommendations

Brian Olesen
 

Hi Kelly,
Ah not entirely true. The audio interface is build in to the chipset or more precisely into the north or south bridge of the chipset.
It's the graphics processor part or at least the digital part of it that lives in side the processor.
And to call those units good quality is certainly a topic for debate. Smile
But for stuff like Jaws they're ok, but remember that they do spend a little processor power when running, and if you use your machine for very cpu intensive tasks you should neither use them for decoding and rendering audio nor for generating graphics, but let these tasks run separately on their unique device.

Best regards
Brian

First of all, actual sound cards are a thing of the past. Good quality audio interfaces are now built into modern processors, particularly i7 machines. Many computers are not sold with a piece of hardware for producing sound called a sound card. Further many audio interfaces sold connect to computers using the USB port rather than an internal card slot. I opted for this in 2014 when I bought a commercial audio interface that connects to my computer using USB rather than an internal card. I was running Windows 8.1 and needed a sighted person to configure the bios and the audio interface software of the new device. Both were inaccessible with a screen reader. However, this was a onetime configuration and I have never needed to touch them again.

Re: Seeking 2nd sound card recommendations

Ah then even an inexpensive Sound Blaster should do. Yeah I guess it's already been answered but yeah I too have heard that in some vids too that either the card will force itself as the defalt or you'll have to make it so if you wana use it. I don't know if that's true at all. Cause I once messed around with an old 2002 PC that had an external sound card. All I did was plug in the cable and it just worked. Who knows. But yeah sound cards are less and less of a thing. heck for $100 even you could get an audio interface as the pros call the fancy pro cards but external with USB and most epic of all with 2 XLRs and phantum power like a mixer.

Ah well what ever you recall of your DVD experience just get yourself a Blu-Ray player heck just even borrow a few disks from a library and it's all good. It's the same. Just even install the trial of Any DVD HD to unlock the disks cause VLC can't actually officially play Blu-Ray, run it in the Back ground and wamb there ya go. I'v tried the Passion of the Christ Blu-Ray and a few others. I think I even watched Godzilla 2014 on my PC this way. But yeah I tryed this cause Cyberlink's Power DVD is totally unusable for someone blind now. The last real usable 1 was version 9. Then it got worse and worse the newere it got.

The VlC equalizer is a bit of a pain. It's easy to get to the presets, but if you want to save your own settings, they sure don't make it easy for you. I watch a lot of old and underground movies and so I need special equalizer settings to bring out dialogue clarity.

Subject: [all-audio] VLC crashing

Hello, I've used VLC Media Player on my Windows 10 machine because I like the ease of being able to easily go forward or backward through a file without doing a lot of tabbing as with Windows Media Player; however, every few files I listen to I get a message saying: "VLC crash reporting; oops, VLC Media Player has crashed; would you like to send a crash report?" I tell it yes, and VLC plays as normal; I get this message every two or three files I play; I've tried resetting preferences, but that doesn't make that behavior go away; I use the latest version, 3.0; what's the best accessible way to keep VLC from doing the crash thing so much? Thanks for any tips or tricks for this.

I love vlc. But I don't have the foggiest idea how to insert bookmarks, use the equalizer and the time position of whatever is being played. These things I can do with media player.

Also i don't know about HDR10 or Dolby Vision. Not particularly asking
these things. Just abserving. But if anyone does know keep me posted.

I have no idea, sadly. Maybe you should sign up to the VLC forum. Someone there might be able to help, particularly if the crash report contains some useful data (not sure if you can see a log or what). I've never experienced this problem, but I generally only use VLC for video files, and play one at a time. For music, I use winamp, although I've been looking into foobar. Winamp still works great, though, and you don't need to use the tab key for a single thing.

I love VLC because it'll play any video format pretty much out of the box. The preferences screen has some accessibility issues, I find. There are probably ways to fix this since the program, even the interface, is so configurable. But I haven't really found any blind expert VLC users to offer tips. A lot of people just get by fine using it for simple things, but the kind of stuff I'm having problems doing with it, like saving my own equalizer settings, are not intuitive and it's pretty hard to get help. VLC is kind of one of those programs, like Gimp, that has a certain amount of obscurity behind it. Haha

Ah well what ever you recall of your DVD experience just get yourself a Blu-Ray player heck just even borrow a few disks from a library and it's all good. It's the same. Just even install the trial of Any DVD HD to unlock the disks cause VLC can't actually officially play Blu-Ray, run it in the Back ground and wamb there ya go. I'v tried the Passion of the Christ Blu-Ray and a few others. I think I even watched Godzilla 2014 on my PC this way. But yeah I tryed this cause Cyberlink's Power DVD is totally unusable for someone blind now. The last real usable 1 was version 9. Then it got worse and worse the newere it got.

Yeah I use VLC for internet radio. But also I found as long as you have something like Any DVD HD going in the background it's a verry accessible Blu-Ray player. Obviously DVDs too but I was amaised that it's about as easy as Windows Media Player use to be when it played DVDs. Thing is I don't know if VLC can handel UHD BD or the Dolby Atmos bit streams on said disks. If it can then so glorious.
