Re: trimming an audio file in goldwave

Joe Giovanelli
 

Hi, Keith,

There are a couple of ways to do the trimming. I'll give you the simplest way.

1. Locate the start of the section you wish to keep.

2. Press the start marker button (left bracket).

3. Press control-T. All data before the start marker will be deleted.

4. Begin playing the file. Playback should start where you intended. If it begins in the wrong place, press control-Z. Doing that will restore the file to its original state. Set a new start point and repeat the above steps.
5. Move to the end of the section you wish to keep.

6. PPress the start marker.

7. Press the delete key. The unneeded section will be deleted. This is true because the finish marker is already at the proper point.

I hope this helps.

Joe Giovanelli

Subject: [TechTalk] trimming an audio file in goldwave



Hi, I am wondering how to trim an audio file using goldwave.

I have a very long recording of my father's funeral which I wish to trim the beginning portion and the end portion of the file, so i get the hour long mass to send to my family.

I know you place the beginning nd end markers using the braket keys and then am at a loss.

I have tried hitting the control T combo but that trimms everything outside the markers, which is the exact opposite of what I want to do.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Keith

I suppose that if it doesn't work, you could install the program again and use a different uninstaller.  I don't use other uninstallers so I can't recommend one.

If you have it, you can also delete the entries using the CCleaner
"Uninstall"
section without having to manually edit the registry.

I would think that there would be a way to search for a contact. I
never use the list when I use Windows Live Mail.
I use the search feature so that I can find the contact by simply
typing part of what I'm looking for and then looking at the results.
I don't know why the list is being organized in the way you describe
but if Windows Live Mail has a search contacts feature, I would expect
that Outlook does as well.

For some reason, as I add a new contact, they are going to the top of
my contacts. For instance, Jim goes over Alicia, the beginning of the
list, and Billy goes above Jim - getting to be a big jumble, and most
irritating.

Another thing. Do any of yall know how to set it so that when I enter
a contact, I don't have to edit the file window to get the first name
first?
In other words, I enter Jim Smith, but in the file window it shows
Smith, Jim, so I have to back out one of them and the comma and then
put it back in the place where I want it so that the first name displays
first.

Question regarding scanning and saving to pdf

Robin Frost
 

Hi,
I hope this finds all happy and well.
Presently I have a Plustek Opticbook 4800 scanner which comes with its own book pilot software.  I also have licensed copies of Openbook and DocuScan. As such I was wondering if any others who might have similar set-ups might be kind enough to teach me how to scan a multi-page document and save it to pdf for the benefit of a sighted recipient as I’ve never done this before.  While some portions of the scanner’s own book pilot software were accessible with screen reader software I couldn’t quite master how one saved the resulting scan to a pdf. So if anyone’s ever had success either doing it with the scanner’s own software or some other way I’d love to hear about it as it’d be helpful to be able to do this well enough so as not to worry about the visual accuracy therein when sharing with a sighted recipient as I said.
Thanks in advance for any help offered. It’s much appreciated.
Robin

Hello to all,

 

I would like to download a portable copy of NVDA from the web site.  .  I do not want it on my computer but on a flash drive.  I would greatly appreciate if someone could give me step by step instructions on how to do this.  I am using JAWS 16 on a windows 7 computer.  Thank you so much.

If it's already installed on the computer and not a portable version, files are not necessarily organized in the same way.  Use the intended create portable version option in the tools menu so the program will be properly organized to work as a portable program.

Veronica, since you already have NVDA installed on your computer, why not
just copy that entire folder onto a USB flash drive?  It's what I did and I
never had to install a separate copy unto a flash drive. 

Please note:  When you do this, NVDA MUST NOT be a current running screen
reader in use.  You will need to load a different screen reader so you can
have speech whilst performing the functions outlined above.

Of course, I don't use NVDA much, but I am playing ball with it behind the
scenes!

I see that you are using JAWS.  You could have someone send you a zipped copy, as was offered if you want.  I was thinking it might be more convenient to do either of the two procedures I suggested but getting the zipped copy might be the most convenient.  But from a standpoint of learning from using the installer, you might prefer downloading and using the installer as I explained in my last message.  You will know more about the program in that way in terms of installation and you will be able to create your own portable copies in future or instruct others.  Also, if you do get a zipped copy, ask to be sure that it is an unchanged copy, with no settings already made and no add ons installed.
