Re: Bose 700

Hi Tim. Thanks for that. Yes I love the Bose sound though. I will admit they don't do sub bass. But then again headphones especially can't do true car subwoofer bass. That feel it threw your house as the car goes buy bass. But that is for a Bose quality thread on a Bose list. Or something like that. I once had QC 15 headphones. I loved them. Wanted the 700s but didn't have the $300. Did you say there's mor lag with the cable then with blutooth? How can that be? But then again production headphones these are not. They wouldn't be considered flat enough. I've also heard they are brighter and perhaps wider sounding then the QC35 2.

Hi,

The Bose 700 headphones are very comfortable and have some good features for blind users.

The touch controls are extremely easy to use. Sliding your finger vertically up or down the front side3 of the right ear cup increases or decreases the volume.

Sliding your finger forward or backward moves to next track or start of current track/previous track.

Double-tapping pauses and resumes playbak.

There are three physical buttons also

- for power on/off and pairing;
- For adjusting the noise cancelation level between three pre-set levels (the Bose Music app allows you to choose these);
- And the other button is for answering/ending a call, Siri or other voice assistant.

You can choose from level 10 noise cancelation - which is extremely good, through to level 0, which is a pretty responsive and accurate transparency mode.

I often use level 4, which attenuates noise but still allows situational awareness when at home - so I can hear someone calling or what the dog is doing.

For blind folks, this multi-level noise cancelation feature is the stand-out feature of the 700's.

Their other stand-out feature is for phone calls, where they attempt to cancel noise around you as you speak, so the person at the other end only hears you. As with all headphones in this class, their reproduction of your voice is adequate, but not great, lacking high end and some flanging.

Music playback Sound is good, but not super fantastic. Bose have their own sound profile which a lot of audio files are not very impressed by. The app allows you to adjust bass, mid-range and highs, but it’s accessibility is a little fiddly. The Sonys and The AirPods Max are both considered to have much superior sound over-all.

Audio Latency is pretty poor over Bluetooth, which is a shame.

Worse still, there is significant latency when you use the 3.5 ml headphone cable, which makes them poor for audio production work where you really want 0-latency.

That about sums up my experience with these headphones.

Re: Winamp Questions

Sorry rob, I can't even replicate this problem.


Re: Winamp Questions

Rob
 

I checked, and Winamp is the default music player. When I press Enter on an audio file, Winamp does open, but the audio does not play.

But a file does play if I go into Winamp and use shift-l to open a folder or other keystrokes to open a file while I am in Winamp.

Hi Rob,
It may be worth checking that winamp is the default player for audio.
1. press windows key and x.
2. cursor up to apps and features, press enter.
3. you may need to shift tab once, to the list, and arrow down to default apps, and press enter.

4. tab three times, to default music player, if it is not winamp, press the button, and from the nex dialogue, select winamp and press the button.
If winamp is already the default, press alt f4 to close the default apps and features settings window.

see if winamp plays files when you press enter on the files you want to play.
If not, we need to look further.

Winamp Questions

Rob
 

I have questions about Winamp.



Question 1: I have been using Winamp 5.66 for years. In Windows 10, I use
File Explorer to locate an audio file and press Enter to play it in Winamp.
But lately, Winamp opens, but the audio does not play. Even navigating to
Winamp and using hot key x does not start playing. I have messed around
with settings in Winamp preferences to no avail. As a work around, I have
been using the context menu to open the file with another player like VLC,
Groove Music, etc. I appreciate any thoughts.



Question 2: Winamp plays files at a softer volume than other players. It
doesn't matter what format the audio file has. Yes, I have pressed up-arrow
many times to increase the volume. I can't find any settings in Winamp
preferences that deals with volume.



Question 3: I like Winamp because there are key strokes to pan the audio
left and right. I use this frequently to pan a learning track to the right
so the left channel doesn't play. Are there other media players that have
easy methods to pan the audio left and right?

playlist won't work in Jaws and Leasey

Peter Russillo
 

the latest Foobar 2000 not so accessible
Hello, I am using Foobar 2000 version 1.6.2 on a Windows 10 Pro machine; while trying to set it up  I noticed several things like making hotkeys did not seem very accessible; the tutorial I have must  have been done around 2010 or 2011 with Foobar version 1.1; if anyone uses the latest stable build  of Foobar, do you find it less accessible than earlier versions?  I am using Jaws along with Leasey  and made a playlist by giving it a title, then using Leasey tags on the files I want; after doing  this I hit control-shift-p as per the documentation to create the list; however when I go to Work  with your playlists and hit enter on the title of the playlist I made, then hit enter on Listen to  the playlist, nothing happens.  If anyone uses Jaws with Leasey, is there another step I may be  missing?  Also, what differences are there between Foobar and VLC Media Player?  Thanks for any  help and info.
Yours truly, Peter Russillo

Blaze EZ and Blutooth codacs.

Hamit Campos
 

Hi friends. Maybe I'm going too geeky here and maybe it's not user doable.
But I remember the Blaze players from Hims are Android based. Now to the
geeking out part. Does any one know what version? I know when they came out
they weren't on the latest greightest android. Don't know now. Why it
matters. Now we go super geeky. Do these things have any way of accessing
the blutooth codacs and if they are on android 11 making them spit out LDAC?
Which is Sony's HD codac. Or hell even just APTX? If these blindness players
don't how many of you have tried Sony's NW-A105 digital Walkman? Yes I know
I know we can't use the screen. But could we just play things on it once we
set and forget what ever we wished to with a sighted person?


Audio meter apps

Georgina Joyce
 

Hello All,

Firstly, happy new year to all.

Some years ago I recall someone asking for an audio meter. Enabling a screen reader to read aspects of an audio device. I have an amateur radio program that requires the incoming audio signal to the record device to be set about 30DB. I recall that there was such an application and I see there are quite a few out there. Anyone know of an accessible one?

Many thanks,

Georgina

Re: wavepad question?

Colin Howard
 

Simon,

As you've been using WavePad to my knowledge at least a couple of years, I
am really surprised you don't know such a basic function.

I suspect if it is anything like GoldWave, there is a function something
like place marker, in GoldWave, the key stroke to place a marker is left
bracket which when pressed places a start marker at the current cursor
position. the end marker is close bracket which places a marker for the end
of selection at the current cursor
position. In totalRecorder, there is a similar facility so I suspect if you
read the help or manual, you should find the appropriate descriptions.
Removing / inserting into or from files is one of the most basic and early
things I needed to do with GoldWave.

Hi Colin. Thanks very much for that. You actually did help, as
pasting in the credentials worked. Some programs don't like me doing
that, and GoldWave wasn't showing any characters in the boxes when I
pasted the info before, so that's why I was trying to type it in. Not
sure why it doesn't work with both methods of input, but thanks for
solving the problem for me.

Hi. I hope everyone is doing well.

I've recently installed the latest version of GoldWave and have been
using it without issue (apart from the fact that the time announced
when a start or end place marker is created is that of the previous
marker and not the one being created at the time). However, I'd
incorrectly assumed that it had remembered my previous licence
credentials, and so this morning it has asked me to register. Upon
trying to register with my lifetime licence's user ID and licence, I'm
receiving a notification stating that one or other of these is
incorrect, even though I've typed it straight from the original
licence email. I assume that lifetime means lifetime, but could it be
that I need to purchase a new one due to the gap between the versions
of GoldWave that I've used? I was using version 5.68 until I
downloaded the latest update, so I'd be grateful to know whether or
not anyone thinks this might be the issue. Alternatively, any other
potential causes of the problem or solutions to the issue (including
the best method of contacting GoldWave, if that's required) will be
very much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.
