Re: Jaws Distorted Speech Problem Has Returned

michaeel's mail
 

Hi Glen i was wondering how your sound issue is going now.

I have had the sound go on this laptop a few times a day for the last 3 days.

I have installed the latest win 10 and it still did it.

but i read that all our drivers must be up to date.

I have been in the device setting and tried updating all my drivers.

windows tells me they all up to date.

so i installed a driver updater and it found 8 out dated drivers including my sound driver.

So i will see how computer goess for next few days.

I have been looking for my scanner cd it got put away i let you know when i find it.

Cheers michael.

Memory should not be the problem for most things.
I have a laptop with only two gig of RAM and it runs well.
I think that the more programs we install, whether they are running or not, slow down a computer.
As soon as I get all my data backed up, I plan on reinstalling Windows 7 on this computer.
Although that may not be the cause of this issue, it may exacerbate the problem.

Your system is a little lite on memory, but I wouldn’t say for sure that is the reason for the problem. I had this issue a long time ago and if memory serves it had something to do with sound card drivers.

Hi Tom i am not sure if your sound issue is same as mine.

I have had an issue off and on for about 2 years now on only 2 of my
cheaper Laptops.

My issue is out of the blue jaws will be talking fine then all of a
sudden jaws witll get really reverby and little un responsive.

And i need to do a restart of my computer and the sound is all back to
normal.

But my issue can happen 3 times in half hour.

Or it may not stuff up for days.

2 years ago i did a total reinstalled windows 10 on 1 machine and it
fixed it for ages.

Then few months back it started up again.

Each time this happens i have found under my reliability history in win
10 tells me their was a error saying windows host process has stopped
working or not responding and had to close.

I have had stacks of thoes errors come up.

Most reports have been reported to Microsoft but no fixes.

And i have reinstalled the realteck audio drivers lots of times by
uninstalling drivers under devices.

So i am frustrated as well.

I have 3 dearer laptops with Realteck sound cards and never had a
problem with them.

I feel its something to do with the drivers.

Cheers Michael.

Hello, everyone.

You may recall that last week, I had a Jaws distorted speech problem
with my Dell Windows 10 computer.

The problem was fixed by uninstalling the Windows generic sound card
driver and replacing it with a realtech driver thanks to an executable
file from Mike Mote.

Unfortunately, my problem has returned, but in a different form.

My jaws speech is slightly distorted in the laptop speakers, and when
I use headphones, I get stereo sound with a slight reverberation,
rather than Jaws being in the center of the headphones.

Does anyone have any suggestions for solving this latest issue?

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2019.

Thanks as always.

Hi David,
I'm not sure witch jaws version it started with.
refreshing the current window as we know it pressing:
insert plus escape unmute's the muted sound cards.

well; you could find out what the keystroke is to mute and unmute the sound
on your computer,
or you could create a shortcut to the sndvol.exe, to unmute the sound
yourself.

If you wish to put a shortcut to:
Sndvol.exe, on your desktop try the following;

1, go to desktop,
Windows key+m,

2, press the keystroke,
Ctrl+spacebar,
To unselect all icons.

3, press the applications key, and down arrow and enter on, New sub menu.

4, now arrow and enter on,
New shortcut.

5,
Now type the following in the edit box,
sndvol.exe
6, tab next, press enter.
You will see/hear;
sndvol.exe
your asked to give the shortcut a name, you can leave the sndvol.exe, or
you
could name it for example; volume.
Tab finish press enter.

Now, if you would like a hot-key,

1, desktop,
Press the letter "s" until you hear,
Sndvol.exe
Or the letter "v" if you've named the shortcut volume,

2, now press alt+enter to bring up the properties,

3, tab until you hear;
Shortcut key none,
Here you could type "v", or whatever letter you wish, now press enter.
Now you have a shortcut with a hot-key.
now if your sound becomes muted,

first activate your shortcut, alt+ctrl+v=volume,

tab one time to the mute/unmute sound button,
press spacebar, you should hear jaws again, just alt f4.
or, you can,

1, WindowsKey+r=run,

2, type in:
sndvol
press enter,

3, tab once, press spacebar, sound will now be unmuted.

Re: Getting Adobe Acrobat to Work

Gerald,
The Adobe plug-in needs to be disabled in the internet options - add-ons section.
You probably will have to select all add-ons to find the adobe plug-in. Once disabled IE will go ahead and call the external Adobe reader.

Re: Unmuting a Sound Card

 

Hello Lynn:

I assume you mean that your friend muted his sound card, not his keyboard; if so, and that has happened to me, the easiest thing to do is to use USB headphones which use their own soundcard instead of the system's and thus, being able to listen, go to the System Tray > Sounds and unmute it.

BTW, someone in this list told us not long ago about a program called Stascom that prevents that from happening.

Best,

Humbert

Use the JAWS Dictionary Manager to replace the left and right bracket symbols with a space.?? This way, whenever JAWS encounters these symbols, they will not be spoken.

It’s tough without seeing the articles, but here are the tricks I use for my newsletter emails.

 

  1. If available, click the link in the email that often says something like, “if this email is not appearing properly, click this link to view in a web browser.”
  2. See if the title of the article is also a link.  In our daily industry newsletter here at work, I find the news story title is a link that works better than the “Read more” link for whatever reason.
  3. Try using the JAWS F7 keystroke to pull up a list of links in the email and activate the link from there.  I realize this may not work well if you end up with this list of links that all say “read more” or such, but you may find is helpful.

 

Let us know if that helps.

I think i hav this right. The ear bugs have a proprietary design and don’t always work in non Apple jacks. You can try pushing them in and then pulling them out just a fraction and see if you can hear JAWS. Otherwise I would try non Apple ear buds.

I believe you may be able to do what you want with the Logitek H800 headset. They have the USB dongle and a microphone also. With the switch you can also pair a BT device such as a smart phone. You can be using the headset on the computer but if a phone call comes in, just move the switch to BT and answer the call without even picking up the phone.
The headset is over the ear but I have no problem hearing everything around me me and they are very light weight.
I am not positive about routing Jaws to the headset, but believe it is possible to do this. Check them out.

Richard, right now I have the main sound card and a usb card strictly for jaws. I just took a pair of ear buds and plugged them into my computer. There is no sound from jaws anywhere .I think I really need the usb. I know that I could change the plug on the usb sound card but would rather just select  in the utility menu

Aftershokz has bone conduction headphones that are wired, with the standard 3.5 MM plug.
Most USB headphones I've seen are going to block your ears unless you only put them in one ear.
I believe the aftershokz wired ones are around $50 or so.
They are not high fidelity, but if you are mostly focused on listening to JAWS, they would be fine.

Absolutely, there are a number of possibilities for you to pick from. Hit the local electronics store and explain to them what you want.

Glen I only want to use them with my desk top computer. I wanted to direct jaws to this head phone in the soundcard menu.

Re: How to manage Key Labels

Mike B
 

Hi Stanley,
 
Below are 2 sets of steps, you might have to use both of them depending on what keys you would like to silence:
 #1:  From: Mike B
Try the following:
1. Open the Settings Center with, Insert + 6 on the number row, & press, Control, Shift + D, to open Settings Center Default All Applications.
2. Arrow down to, Keyboard, & press right arrow to open.
3. Arrow down to, Manage Key Labels...., & press the spacebar to open.  Note:  Do not press enter, pressing enter will close the Settings Center.
4. After pressing the spacebar you will be in a list of keys.  Arrow down to the key you want to mute, & Tab 1 time to the, Toggle Mute Button, & press
the spacebar to mute.  You'll hear Jaws announce, for example the Tab key, Tab Tab mute.
5. Tab to, Okay, press the spacebar, tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay, & press enter to save your change & close the Settings Center.
 
 #2: From: net bat66
thanks to chris on the gw-info talk list
there is a work around for stopping jaws from speaking the control,shift,alt,
etc in the keyboard labeler.
these keys say they can not be muted. but if you tab to change label and delete
the title and leave them blank this will stop them from speaking when you press
them.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
