Besides the Dubble Talk thing was so dam hard to understand. the new voices are meh almost human sounding. Cause I doubt these synth voices will ever exactly replicate people.

Hi Norma and Everyone,
I have been fortunate enough to be given a Book Port Plus. Indeed, there is
So Much that can be done with it.
I have so many questions about it because I am just learning it. From what I
have experienced so far, I Really Like it.

The thing that I am wondering is, should we discuss it on the list or off
the list?

If there are others who are interested in the Book Port Plus, we can discuss
it on the list.
However, I do not want to create clutter on the list if people do not have a
need to know about the Book Port Plus.

What are your thoughts? Thanks.

Blessings and All the Very Best,
Pat Seed

Hi andrea,

I know you had the original Talking Daisy Book and Media Player but
depending on whether you're going to use protected or unprotected
files you may find what you seek in the 2nd edition of the Talking
Book Reader. It has wifi, uses SD cards, has internet radio capability
as well as podcasts, one-button recording, longer battery life than
the original, etc. And you know we do ship internationally. You can
see it here:

Re: question on Winamp

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Hi.

I like winamp to control volume. It shouldn't be that low. Can you control it at all with the up and dowon arrow keys? There are things you can do. Winamp has a pretty good pre-amp. You can control it with the equalizer turned on. Use the grave accent (`) key to increase the preamp gain, and the tab key to reduce it. This might help increase the volume of your tracks. You could also try a plugin like mp3-gain, although I don't use it myself, so I don't really know how effective it is. I suspect if you uncheck that box you are talking about, you won't be able to control volume at all in winamp. If that's your preference though, go ahead and do it.

Hi list, thanks for the reply about VLC; when using Winamp, I've found that the volume gets lowered quite a bit when I play any file using it; I have volume for the speakers set at 100 percent; I see under Speakers Properties something about Exclusive Mode under the Levels tab I think; there's a checkbox that when checked allows applications to control the volume of the speakers; is it better to leave it checked or to uncheck it? If I uncheck it could that clear up the problem of Winamp lowering the volume? Please let me know if Exclusive Mode is something to leave alone or uncheck it; thanks.

Re: cannot get on VLC Forum

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Ah. Sorry the experience has been so irritating. I've never signed up to the forums, myself; I just know all the experts hang out there and someone there might have a suggestion for you. I've never had any such problems with VLC but, I only use it for playing videos. I stick to Winamp for my music needs and imo it does the job really well, including the seeking back and forth that you mentioned earlier. I also think foobar is excellent, but it requires a bit of patience to set up as you have to define your own hotkeys. You could try one of those programs, if you like. Winamp, as you probably know, is no longer being developed, but it's still available of course, and the last version (5.666 or something?) is recommended for Windows 10 users. There's a new foobar version occasionally. I personally don't find development to be a big deal with audio players; there aren't many new audio formats under the sun and I'm not that fussed about streaming (I could use VLC for this though).

Re: VLC 3.0 always crashing

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

I downloaded the latest VLC last week from the VideoLan webs ite. Noot much point in bothering with the Windows store stuff as far as I see it. May as well get it straight from the source. Unfortunately I am not having the problems you describe on my Windows 10, 64 bit OS/machine running both JAWS and nVDA. I did a couple of quick google searches and there are people who have asked this, but results are either out of date, pertain to the mac, or are youtube videos with crappy music where the guy doesn't explain what he's doing. I've also looked in the advanced preferences and can't find anything, though there is a lot of stuff there and I don't know what much of it is for ...I looked under "logging" though, which seemed the most likely place where a setting would be, and found nothing, so...
I think you asked this question before, and my answer is the same: I suggest you subscribe to the VLC forum and put your question to the experts there.

Hello, I use VLC Media Player the latest version on my Windows 10 PC; I use the desktop version and not the one from the Windows store as I don't know how accessible that is with screen readers; I use System Access as my screen reader; it seems with every other file I open to play, I hear "VLC Crash Reporting, oops, VLC media player has crashed." I hit enter to tell it to send a crash report; then the file will play as normal. Is there a workaround to keep from getting those annoying crash reports every time I open one of my audio files? What I like about VLC is the ability to move backward or forward on the fly when playing a file. Any tips or tricks would be appreciated; also if anyone uses the Windows 10 VLC app with a screen reader, is it accessible and usable? Thanks very much.

Re: total recorder enquiry

Joe Paton
 

Hello Dean,

Thanks for writing.

I am not too sure myself. Talking to a colleague, who is making a
recording of voice input via microphone, in tandem with the screen
reader. He has it working but for the problem that latency on his voice,
is causing problems in his headphones.

Please don't say "take the headphones off." smile.

I guess I was wondering if total recorder may offer a better set of
choices and parameters to negate the latency problem.

I'm really fond of goldwave, and can't see where for the audio work that
I do, i would need to change to total rec. But it's nice to have a
choice of audio editors isn't it, and it's not a silly price either.

Mind you dean, I never used record all, although I bought it years and
years ago. Sound forge went the same way, mostly because of the price
increase when sony bought the product from sonic foundary.

Again, thanks for writing, and best regards.

Re: total recorder enquiry

Dean Martineau <topdot@...>
 

Indeed, that feature comparison table was dreadful! I used to understand old versions of it, but not this one!

I've read the descriptions of the differences between the standard and Professional Edition, but I'm a little boggled by the mall. I know with the Professional Edition you can capture audio output before it gets to the soundcard. You can also timeshift recordings and play a sound you are recording.

Because I'm a little overwhelmed by the documentation, if you can mention which features you're looking for, or what you hope to accomplish, I can probably figure it out. I thought I would be able to give you a summary, but there's too much there for me to summerize, since I don't understand it all that well.

Re: Recording multiple sounds simultaneously on a PC

Aidan
 

This is the way I would do it.
Either use total recorder as it have a driver wich make it possible to
record vurtual and physical inputs at once with a small mixer utility
without having to worry what is rooted to where. That works very well
as you have control over the driver volume wich you don't have in the
case of the loopback input in goldwave.
Also to make it more simple you could try sound tap recorder from nch
but that is 29$ and con't do much, or if stil available and in working
order, you can try vurtual recorder as that was build with this
purpose in mind.
Goldwave works well when recording the vurtual input from the physical
card you select, but if you want to go beyond that then its a problem.
