Re: Speaking Delay Problem With New Windows 10 Computer

Tom,

 

I had someone else do it for me, so I cannot give you exact instructions.  Try to find device manager, and find your way to Sounds, video & game controllers.  I have no idea if locating this can vary from computer to computer.

 

HTH,

Annette

Anette:

 

Can you tell me where to look for the basic sound card setting?

 

The new computer is  using Windows 10 version 1803.

Check your sound card settings.  I had to change my setting to the basic one instead of Realtime.  Hope I got that name right.  Be aware that sometimes updates will undo this setting.

Yes, it is a laptop.

 

I’ve already checked the general sleep settings and the display settings, and they are set respectively for 10 minutes on battery power and 30 minutes when the computer is plugged in.

Tom,

 

Perhaps, this is a laptop.  Did you check the power profile settings?

Hello, everyone.

 

As some of you may remember, I’m continuing to set up a new Dell Windows 10 computer with Jaws.

 

The computer has an Intel I7 processor, 16 gigabytes of ram, a 12h gigabyte solid-state drive, and a 1 terabyte mechanical hard drive.

 

I mention this right from the start, because this computer should have plenty of horse power to work well with Jaws.

 

I have noticed that, when typing something, after I stop using the computer for 30 seconds or so, I do not get Jaws feedback until I press at least four or five keys  In other words, there’s a considerable delay until Jaws starts speaking again.

 

I am thinking this is a Jaws issue, but am not totally sure.

 

I’m currently using Jaws 2018, and plan to upgrade to Jaws 2019 soon, although I’m a bit hesitant to do so right now because of other known problems with Jaws 2019 and MS Word.

 

Are there some settings I should look at to try to address this issue?

 

Thanks as always!
