Hi, everyone,
I am using Jaws 20 and my computer is windows 8.1.
When I go in to my documents to look at the files there I can't see them. It’s like they’re not there, even though I know they are.
Can anyone help?
Thanks so much.

Hi. First, thanks to those who prayed for us and to those who kept us in mind. Me and my family, we truly appreciate your concern and thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. The worst of the typhoon has almost passed, and my family is safe. As of now, though the rain is heavy, the winds are slowing down. I personally couldn't be at peace if I didn't know that you are all praying for and wishing your best for my family's safety. Thank you.


Re: the Victor reader stream and bluetooth

Carolyn Arnold
 

I didn't know the Stream could pair. I just bought a Miccus last week too. The sound, using the cable is wonderful, isn't it?

I made the mistake of trying to pair it with my phone with my hearing aids on, because I need them, but they can pair. Tomorrow, since I've been busy all day today, I'll disconnect my hearing aids and get it paired, then re-pair my hearing aids to the phone.

Subject: [TechTalk] the Victor reader stream and bluetooth

Hi all,

I have a second generation victor reader stream and I purchased the Miccus transmitter/receiver from TalkingMp3Players.com last week so I can use a bluetooth headset with the victor reader.

I plugged the transmitter into the victor and turned on the headset which immediately said it was in pairing mode because it's new as well, purchased elsewhere, then I held the button on the transmitter for 8 seconds as the audio instructions told me to do, and near the end I heard the headset say connected but just a second or 2 later it disconnected again. Before I call for tech support I wanted to see if anybody might know what I'm doing wrong and why I can't get everything to work as it should, I suspect I'm not that far off getting it right.

Thanks.

Troy

Re: Real techh problem

This message is a little long, but you may find useful comments and information.
 
I saw on a list recently, a comment that there is a problem with Realtech drivers in Windows 10.  But I don't know what kinds of problem or problems the writer had in mind and I don't remember who made the comment.  I'm not vouching or evaluating the accuracy of the comment but its interesting that a member of this list made a comment about the drivers as well.  Since I've seen two comments, you may be able to solve the problem.  Whatever happens, you have the external soundcard as an option if you want to use it or if you need to.
 
and having an external sound card may be useful if you do more with different kinds of recording in future.  I won't go into that here.
 
But I will say that if you solve the problems with the realtech audio, it would still be a very good idea to purchase a cheap exsternal sound card.  If you lose audio using your internal card for some reason, you can trouble shoot the problem and, if necessary, continue to use your computer with the external soundcard.  You will thus have avoided the inconvenience of not being able to use it while you get an external card, whether the internal audio problem can be solved or not.  I think anyone who doesn't have a Braille display should have some sort of external sound card.  The cheap ones cost ten U.S. dollars or less.

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.

Hi Fred. Just a quick note, a USB headset might also help. In most cases,
the computer treats a USB headset just like another sound device. A Logitech

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.

Gene, thanks for your response and could you give me a little info on
the externalUHB sound card as I am not familiar with external soundcards
.
Are
external soundcards a stand alone device?

You can try removing the program and whatever driver is used. but
without a description of the problems, people have no idea if the
problem is more likely a software problem or perhaps a hardware
problem, the card itself.
I
have never tried to uninstall the program and I can't tell you how to
completely uninstall all traces of it. Depending on the problem, just
uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it or updating the driver
might be all that makies sense to do. All the rest may be irrelevant
to the problem.

Also, it might be time to just stop using the Realtech built-in audio
and get an external USB sound card. But again, we can't discuss the
problems without knowing what they are.

Subject: [TechTalk] Real techh problem

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.

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.

An external card will connect to your computer's usb port. Now be sure when you get one to install the included drivers that come with it. You will get a cd in the box.

Re: WinAmp and Alternatives

Raising the volume works with Up Arrow as you describe, but it will
only go so far before hitting some sort of block that keeps it from
sounding as loud as the rest of my system. Thanks again for any
further tips.--Joe

Did you try raising the volume? That has nothing to do with scripts. The

arrow to raise the volume. Start something playing. Press and hold up
arrow for many seconds. Does the volume rise?

If you never disabled the setting, it is very unlikely to be disabled. But
if the command doesn't work, I'll tell you how to use the easiest plugin to
adjust the volume settings withh and you can see what you find as to whether
it is disabled..

Does anyone know where these WinAmp scripts for JAWS can be found?

How do I reset the plugin?

And, to Gene's point, I don't mind disabling the volume control, but I
don't see where to do that in the settings. Any guidance? I tried
uninstalling and reinstalling, but some configurations must have been
preserved because the problem persists.

Thanks guys for any help.

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!

Joe
