Re: Real techh problem

They are attached to your computer with a USB cable.  they are stand alone devices in that sense.  I don't know the exact definition of a stand alone device, I don't use the term. 
 
They come with software that you can install if you want to use most of the features of the sound card.  The card will play if you don't install the software so you can do whichever you want.
 
I can't recommend one.  I haven't bought one for perhaps ten years.  Others can discuss what would be suitable if you want to use it for all your audio, including music.  I don't know what price range would be suitable to roughly equal what you already are using, if you are satisfied with that quality of sound.
 
If you only use your sound card for your screen-reader and don't listen to other audio or very little or you aren't concerned much with quality, you might be able to use anything or almost anything, even the cheapest card, but others will have to comment on all that.  If there are specific features, you want, let the list know.

Re: WinAmp and Alternatives

Gene
 

Try the following.  It may not solve the original problem but it will very likely work around it so you don't have to solve the original problem. 
 
When Winamp is opened, use the command control tab.  Do you move through different Winamp windows?  If so, is equalizer one of them?  If so, stop in the equalizer window.  If that window isn't opened, open it with the command alt g.  Then control tab until you are in it. 
I am assuming you are using JAWS and will get speech feedback when you issue this command.  Issue the command n.  Just the letter n by itself.  It toggles the equalizer on and off.  Have it on.
 
Now, alt tab to the main window and start whatever you are testing with playing.
Then switch back to the equalizer window, all these window changes while you are in Winamp with control tab.
press the key above the tab.  It is the grave.  Press it, then wait a second or two.  You should hear a little volume increase.  Press it a number of times to increase the volume by a good amount.  Press tab to decrease the volume.  You may not hear the change until a second or two after you issue the commands.  Set the volume as you want it.  Leave the equalizer on and close the equalizer window with alt g, the same command you opened it with.
Use control tab to move back to the main window.
 
If you have never changed other equalizer settings, the audio should sound the same but the volume should be as you want it.

Byron, thanks much for the info. I would appreciate any additional info

Hi Fred. I have experienced issues with the Realtek audio drivers. You will
probably get a lot of suggestions as to how to fix this issue. Can you
provide some information as to what is happening that is causing your
issues? If we can know that, as Gene suggested, we can better help you
troubleshoot what is going on.

Hi, I’ve been using WinAmp 5.666 for a while. Until recently, it
worked fine, but lately it’s been playing audio at a significantly
lower volume than the rest of my system. After some cursory research,
it may have something to do with my output plugin. I don’t have the
energy to fuss too much with it, unless someone can point to a
specific plugin tweak I can attempt.

Are there JAWS scripts for WinAmp?

Or, what other audio players are people using? I like the interface
for WinAmp. I like the granularity of being able to move around files
and within files themselves, but if people have since moved onto more
updated players, I’d be interested in some suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

Are there JAWS scripts for WinAmp?

Or, what other audio players are people using? I like the interface
for WinAmp. I like the granularity of being able to move around files
and within files themselves, but if people have since moved onto more
updated players, I’d be interested in some suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

Real techh problem

Fred Adams
 

I am using Win 10, latest jaws and outlook 2019. I have been having
problems with real tech on this computer since I purchased it which was
about 18 months ago and I should returned it but I did not as I thought the
problem was in the settings. I have had different technicians work on this
problem but nothing has worked for long and everything seems to be patchwork
and works for a time. I want to completely unstall real tech, drivers etc
and do a complete new installation as if it were a new computer and start
over. I want no more patchwork or repairs as I have had enough. I would
appreciate any suggestions on removing real tech and installing new version.
Thanks much for any advice or help. I have three computers and the other 2
computers work fine with real tech.

You might want to try an app called “Scanner Radio “.

I have the pro addition, and it is really good.

You tell it what you want to hear and give it a location, and you’re in.

I have it on a Samsung phone, but I am pretty sure that it is available for IOS as well.

Good evening folks.  Anyone know of a digital police scanner that is blind friendly, maybe one that can be controlled with an iPhone or Android?  Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Hi all. This is strictly Off topic I know, but please keep my family in the philippines in mind as Typhoon Kamuri with winds of up to 150 MPH, bringing with it rain of up to 16 inches is as of now raging across Luzon Island in the Philippines. The hurricane winds is slowly rising, blowing across the area where we live. and is expected to peak early this morning, philippines time. I am expected to return to my family for christmes as I am currently working in Singapore. I only hope that I can return to my wife and kids with the knowledge that they are safe and sound. To those of you who believe in God, please pray for us. If you don't, keep us in your hopes. Thank you.

Winamp has had scripts since 2003, and do a reset on the plugin.

Hi, I’ve been using WinAmp 5.666 for a while. Until recently, it
worked fine, but lately it’s been playing audio at a significantly
lower volume than the rest of my system. After some cursory research,
it may have something to do with my output plugin. I don’t have the
energy to fuss too much with it, unless someone can point to a
specific plugin tweak I can attempt.

Did you try to increase the volume?  I don't recall if the command is just up arrow or control up arrow.  Hold up arrow and see if the volume increases.  then, if it doesn't try control up arrow. 
 
You can also completely disable the Winamp volume control, though I'd have to check to see how that is done.  I have no interest in controling Winamp volume separately from the general volume, so I keep things simple by disabling the Winamp volume control.
