External sound cards

Mary Smith
 

Hello listers, I've been doing a bit of research into external sound cards. I found one on Amazon that is manufactured by a company called Pluggable. Does anyone have experience with products that are manufactured by this company?

Thanks.

Mary.

I don't think that the Stream is Bluetooth capable, Troy. I hope you find out that I am very wrong.

Carolyn,

On the talking mp3 site it mentions the Victor reader as being something that can be made to work with a bluetooth transmitter/receiver so that's why I bought the Miccus. I might just have to call and find out why I haven't been successful so far if nobody on the list can give me any ideas.

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.

Re: Realtek Driver With Equalizer

Gene
 

Since the message below the question is about the Realtech equalizer, it can't be assumed that the Winamp equalizer is being discussed. 
 
But the answer, whichever equalizer it is, is yes.  The Realtech equalizer must be accessible or Mike wouldn't have provided a means to get it.  That's what all equalizers do, adjust different frequency bands of sound so you can customize the sound as you wish.  Base and trebble controls are, in a way, very crude equalizers.  They adjust bass and trebble but not with anywhere near the fine control of equalizers, which have five bands, ten bands, and some may have more, I never checked.

Yes, you can adjust the equalizer to your liking for bass which would be 1 and Q to adjust accordingly, and 0 and P for treble.

 

Use the following hot keys in the WinAmp Equalizer (for JAWS users):

To open/close the equalizer, press Alt+G.

To enable/disable the equalizer after it is opened, press N.

To toggle equalizer auto-loading, press A.

To open the presets menu, press S.

 

To increase the equalizer bands, press 1 through 0 on Numeric Row.

To decrease the equalizer bands, press Q through P.

To increase the equalizer  PreAmp, press GROV ACCENT.

To decrease the equalizer PreAmp, press TAB.

Re: Real tech problem

Gene
 

You don't need to and even if it isn't working properly, its good to have a backup.  Any card you plug into the USB ports becomes the default sound card.  Its better not to micromanage things to that extent.

Re: the Victor reader stream and bluetooth

Troy Burnham
 

Hi Laz,

I had the headset and the transmitter easily within 3 feet of each other but my phone and my echo were both within the same distance and of course they both have bluetooth so that may be the problem. I'll try it again some time today, this time further away from the phone and the echo, and if I still don't have any luck I'll give you a call.

Troy

Troy, Two things to consider first.

1. Did you put the transmitter and your receiving device close
together during pairing?

2. Are all other Bluetooth devices in the vicinity either turned off

You may wish to use your mom's eyesight to see the pretty lights which
is a better indicator of what the Miccus Swivel Jack RTX is doing

I paired mine with my Echo Dot so I can use it as a computer speaker

That should do it

Soundcards

Smiling?
 

Depending on what a user is wanting to accomplish is primarily what would determine which soundcard he or she would actually want to use, but USB soundcards at about $6.49 work just fine for basics. These cards will be 16bit (example below from Amazon). The soundcards are generally about half the size of a USB flash drive with two 3.5mm phono jacks, one for mic input and the other for output (speakers/headphones).

The new edge browser or that is the old new Edge Browser which Microsoft included with Windows 10 a few years ago has some issue with the way it displays visited links.  For that reason, no screen readers are able to see visited links.  Therefore the V quick navigation key will not work.

With the newer Edge browser which should be based on Chrome, you can navigate with the V quick key for visited links.

I'm not sure what that means.  Do you have a sighted person who can tell you if the files are being displayed?  I'm trying to think of another way you can get to the same files.  Are you opening My Documents on the desktop?  I don't recall if you stated what version of Windows you are using but there is at least one more way to get to the folder.  Try an experiment.  Open the start menu search and type documents.  Do you see a documents folder or more than one?  Can you open them and see the files?
 
Others may be able to give you other ways or better ways.  I'm making a suggestion but I don't know what you will see to open.
 
But I'm suggesting finding another way to open the folder because you may currently be working with the library and not directly with the folder.  Something may have happened that is causing yu problems with the library but that may have nothing to do with working with the folder itself.

You can keep reinstalling the driver if Windows removes it.  I think it might remove it during a full upgrade, the six months apart ones, but I doubt it would for security and stability updates.

Its good to know that an accessible equalizer is still available with Realtech sound cards.  I had thought that the accessible equalizer had been supplanted by an inaccessible one at some point.

Howdy James,

 

I know this driver / Microsoft replacement crap happens for some people, but fortunately I don't have this problem.  Why I don't know and wish I did, so I would know how to fix it like everyone else.  If on occasion this does happen I keep the driver with the equalizer handy so I can replace the gineric crap Windows installs.  Anyways, I'll zip up the Realtek driver I have and send the list a download link.

Howdy Mike,

 

Pardon my lack of knowledge but, if a different driver is installed, won’t Windows update just replace it when it is detected.

 

While I have your ear, where can I find a RealTech driver with an equalizer?  That would be awesome if Windows updates wouldn’t replace it.

 

Cheers,

Hi Fred,

 

If you install another Realtek driver make sure it's the driver with an equalizer.

Mike, thanks much for your response.  No, the problem on this computer has
been going on for 18 months and since it was new.  I have computer
technicians try to repair it but no luck.  I called the Microsoft handicap
help and they made an attempt but no luck.  I just want to uninstall and
start over again with a new version.  Also, the external soundcard sounds
interesting.  Right now jaws sounds like it is in abarrel.  Adios for now

Hi Fred,
 
Does this happen after a Windows 10 update?  Windows is notorious for
removing the Realtek driver and replacing it with a Windows gineric driver,
thus causing various problems.

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.

Re: When I go in to my documents to look at the files there I can't see them

Gene
 

I'm not sure what that means.  Do you have a sighted person who can tell you if the files are being displayed?  I'm trying to think of another way you can get to the same files.  Are you opening My Documents on the desktop?  I don't recall if you stated what version of Windows you are using but there is at least one more way to get to the folder.  Try an experiment.  Open the start menu search and type documents.  Do you see a documents folder or more than one?  Can you open them and see the files?
 
Others may be able to give you other ways or better ways.  I'm making a suggestion but I don't know what you will see to open.
 
But I'm suggesting finding another way to open the folder because you may currently be working with the library and not directly with the folder.  Something may have happened that is causing yu problems with the library but that may have nothing to do with working with the folder itself.

When I use the jaws cursor it says “select a file to preview.
Alt V doesn’t do anything while I’m in the folder.

Do you see them if you look using the JAWS cursor?  What settings do you see if you open the view menu with alt v wile in that folder?

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.
