Recording With GoldWave

Glenn / Lenny
 

Hi,
I would like to know if there is a keyboard shortcut to record with GoldWave.
I've looked in the manual and it mentions recording, but it does not give a keyboard command to start.
I've tried file and new, but that did not do anything.
I'm trying to record streaming audio.
Thanks.

If you live in the US, you really can't beat the price with the home annual subscription program no matter how far behind you are.
Staying current is the key with all the updates that are coming out with Google and Microsoft.

Hi James,
You may get mixed opinions on this, since Jaws seems to perform differently
from system to system,
so the best thing to do, is compare the two for yourself on your system.

Hi all,

I’m looking for advice. Using windows 7 Home, which version of Jaws works
best.

I’m using Chrome, Windows Live Mail, VLC, Malwarebytes, Adobe, Win amp etc.
Also, I like to be able to maneuver through menus in Windows.

Any advice will be appreciated very much.

Have a nice day,

James B

Hi Mike,
That part I know, hence the thought I had for a script to switch that.
There would be no way to do that without sound.
But I don't know if a script/batch file could do that.

Hi Glenn,
 
You need to switch the USB soundcard to be the default soundcard in playback devices or switch Jaws to the USB soundcard in the Jaws context menu / Utilities / soundcard submenu.  The default sounds or Jaws won't switch to the USB soundcard on their own.

Interestingly, I have plugged in USB sound cards that have been plugged in before, so those drivers had already been gathered, but that does not help.
I erroneously thought plugging in an external USB card when this happens would give me sound.

Hi Glen it  sounds like the same issue i am having.

I have been having this for 2 years.
And its not a jaws issue i have been just playing music or useing another screen reader On and it does the same.

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.

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.

Hi,

I use the Windows Defender. Have been using it for two or so years with no issue.

Windows Defender is already on your windows 10 pc and does not cost anything. It gives no problems with Jaws.

Maybe it is a hardware issue. Maybe you should return the laptop. Several years ago, I purchased a Dell laptop and could not get Window Eyes to work, I had to return the laptop.

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.

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.

Hi Glen it  sounds like the same issue i am having.
My sound does that and if i do not restart machine i lose the sound.
I have been having this for 2 years.
And its not a jaws issue i have been just playing music or useing another screen reader On and it does the same.

My Jaws speech will slow down and sound like a Silon (battle star galactica), and then I lose all audio, again, with a realtech driver.
I think it might be a hardware issue.
Windows 7 64 bit on an Intel NUC, 8GB of RAM.
This has happened with many versions of Jaws, 15 through 2019.

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.

Re: Daisy Book Assistance

Hello Glenn,

 

I am not sure why the Audio menu didn’t show up for your file.  Is it possible that narration wasn’t included in the project?  Most DAISY files I create are made using the DAISY Word add-in, and I use the Narration to DAISY option.  When I paste a .OPF file into the file name box of FS Reader when using the Open command the file opens with an Audio menu.  I am not sure why this isn’t working for you.  Hopefully you will get it working or someone else can give you the answer.    

 

Take care.

 

Brian Lee

Hi Brian,

Maybe it's because I opened it incorrectly, but the play option is not available.

I did find the bookmark option and used it already.

What I did was to do control + O and pasted in a path to one of the files in the book's folder with an .OPF extension.

That seemed to work, other than no other options being available in the menus.

Thanks.

Hello Glenn,

 

FS Reader 3.0 works on DAISY files.  A shortcut might be on your computer’s desktop or you can find it in the All Apps list under FS Reader folder.  Otherwise, the executable can be found in
C:\Program Files\Freedom Scientific\FSReader\3.0.

You can use the normal CTRL+O command when the program opens to browse to the file to open.  When in the file you can use CTRL P to play or pause either the human speech or the synthesized speech used in the file creation.  Use comma to advance and period to go back in the playback, and you can use CTRL with page up and page down keys to increase or decrease speech rate.  You can also read the file with your keyboard and JAWS speech.  Use F6 to go between the window with the current information in it and the list of elements like chapters, parts, headings, etc.  There is a bookmarking capability in a Bookmarks menu.  CTRL+B to add a bookmark and CTRL+K to list them.  When using JAWS you can use quick navigation keys.

Hi,

I just downloaded a book from archive.org, and it came in two formats, DAISY and abbyy.GZ.

I used 7Zip on both of them.

I could put the DAISY in a special player that we can use, but I would prefer to read it on the computer.

The GZ file extracted to an XML file, and it seems to lock up whatever I open it with.

Didn't Jaws used to come with some software for DAISY books?

Thanks for any assistance.

Re: Help for a Friend: Issue with G Mail & Outlook

Hello;
perhaps this may help.

ok, first what you may try is;

1, while in a message,
use the keystroke,
insert+x,
you should hear;
control, and tables,
another press you should hear;
smart navigation off.

Also in outlook,
I believe it's best to have the folderview on,
the reading pane set to off,
also, you can have show in groups off.
now your messages are in a big list, not sort by date,/groups.

Hello Everyone,

I have been a Member for a short time. A friend of mine who is also blind
is having a problem with his E-mail. I'm pretty resourceful but could not
find any solutions for him, for folks using screen Readers. And, I'm not
Geeky.( that's why I don't post to this list ).
Anyway, Below is his issue. Perhaps someone here can write and give
some directions. Even better list actual steps he can do to resolve the
issue. If not, some resources that may help him. He said he already spoke
to an IT person at our local Center for the Blind as well as the Microsoft
Accessibility Help Desk and they redirected him to a web site. This
surprised me. Though, it is frustrating at times working with the folks at
the Microsoft accessibility Help Desk ( the calls are very long ). They
never declined helping a blind customer.
So, both my friend and I will be grateful if you can help him. Look
below at his issue. Thank you in advance. Have a great day.

A couple of weeks ago, on a Monday, is when the issue started:
I got onto the computer and opened outlook for my g-mail. I then attempted
to go to documents so I could start working there too. I hit the "M" key and
"windows" key at the same time, but somehow I missed something. The computer
began saying "table view, table, table, table..."ad nauseum. I hit escape
and it stopped but somehow I ended up in a mode of something I have no clue
about. This meant that I could only use my left and right arrows to go
through my mail and as I found out then, and again this morning...it misses
some of the mail I needed.
A week ago, Thursday the 2nd, I got kicked off line and out of
g-mail/outlook. At that point I couldn't get back into g-mail/outlook so I
thought I would just turn it off and/or restart...nothing doing. I couldn't
turn off the computer no matter what I did...it wouldn't shut down or even
restart for me. My wife finally came in and shut it down for me, using the
mouse.
When it fired back up...everything worked fine with no issues. No more
password boxes that popped up for no reason, which I got rid of by hitting
escape and my mail was back to 'normal' and I was able to scroll through
with no issues and haven't hit a snag until yesterday morning when it
started all over again.

Hello list
I run Windows 10 64 bit and jaws 2019 and my PC has an I5 processor. I find
that if I have two programs running, say for instance MS Outlook and MSWord,
and When I then open a third program like Google Chrome, Jaws does not see
the info on the screen. When I use the arrow keys it just says "blank,
blank, ...". I even increased my PC memory to 8 GB in the hope it would
solve the problem but it did not. When I unload jaws and load it again, the
problem is solved but it is frustrating to have to do this every time, so I
hope someone has a solution.

Re: Jaws17 Vs. Jaws2019 on Windows 7 Home

For me, J17 and Chrome do not play together at all. So, J17 is now just a backup in case J2019 goes down.

Hi James,
You may get mixed opinions on this, since Jaws seems to perform differently
from system to system,
so the best thing to do, is compare the two for yourself on your system.

I’m using Chrome, Windows Live Mail, VLC, Malwarebytes, Adobe, Win amp etc.
Also, I like to be able to maneuver through menus in Windows.

Update On Distorted Jaws Speech Problem

Tom Behler
 

Hello, again, everyone.

 

After several tries and about an hour on the phone with Microsoft Accessibility, we finally got a new realtech driver installed that pretty much solved my Jaws speech distortion problem again.

 

Things are not perfect, and still a bit quirky when it comes to plugging in my headphones, but at least I’m basically back in business again.

 

I want to thank everyone on the list for tolerating my various e-mails on the topic.

 

If anyone has some thoughts on what we might be able to do to effectively highlight what clearly seems to be a problem relating to Microsoft sound card driver updates, please let us know.  I’m told that this is a known Windows 10 issue.

Re: Turning off automatic frame update

Mike B <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Larry,
 
I know what you are talking about but, I don't know what setting in Chrome causes this to happen.  If you look in your IE11 settings, Alt + T, for tools and the letter, O, for options on the General tab, Tab to the Tabs button, press the spacebar to open and look at your settings in here an this might give you an idea as to what to look for in Chrome.

Hi Mike;

Tried this but perhaps I’m asking the wrong question. What I’m trying to resolve is when using Chrome I go to a website arrow down through the lists, click on a link and JAWS jumps back to the top of the site rather than staying focused on the info that comes up after clicking on the link. If I use I.E. the JAWS focus stays on the info that comes up after clicking on the link. Is there something I can set to resolve this issue. It’s a pain to have to jump through all the lists and links each time.

With Chrome running open the Chrome settings Center and navigate to,Web / HTML / PDFs closed, right arrow to open, down arrow to, Heading and Frames closed, right arrow to open, and in here are a couple of Fram settings you can change to see if it'll help.  If you make any changes tab to, Okay, press enter to save and close.

Hi James,
 
I would have to go with J2019 mainly because J17 was a transition version of the way FS wrote Jaws in computer lingo.  J17 was the first version of the
new computer coding and certain features were left out like exporting and importing settings.
