I mean, if you listen to music and want the best sound quality, you might want to discuss that.

As implied in mhy last answer, getting a pair of speakers where the wires
can be detatched and replaced may solve your problem, or I would think a set
of bluetooth speakers would or some sort of USB speakers might. I'm not
sure if you lose sound quality to any extent using Bluetooth speakers. If
you listen to music, you may want to discuss that.

Why not just get another cable? You would save a lot of money. If the speakers stay in one place, that would be by far the cheapest way to solve the problem if it is the cable.

Well, I am thinking after all my testing that one of my speakers has a short in it! So has anyone heard of a set of speakers that does not rely on a cable to connect the other speaker. That one has to rely on a connecting cable to pare both speakers? I refuse to buy a set of speakers where one always has a connecting wire to it, rather just have one that allows one to connect both speakers manually! My speaker with the wire is the one with the short. I had to reconnect the speakers to the pc with a different audio cable to figure out it was not the audio sound card. I am not very technical about what you would call a set of speakers connected by a cable instead of one speaker having a wire that connect to the other speaker. I want to avoid this issue if the one with the wire has the short again! I only had these speakers for 5 years, my others lasted 10 years and I actually gave them to someone when I moved! Thanks Heather

labels.
There are apps that will allow you to create audio labels,
but, as has already been stated, the labels can be accidentally discarded
with the packaging.
That is why I suggested the other apps, so the packaging could be identified
as it is removed from the freezer, refrigerator, or cabinet etc.
That is my current preference so I don't have to create so many labels.
Items I am going to keep, get labels,
and consumables such as food, are identified on an as-needed-basis.
Just suggestions, everyone has their unique situations.

While I use and love both of these apps, I don't think either of them will
let you create your own labels. I believe he is talking about stuff you
might put in a zip lock bag or a plastic freezer container which have no bar
code. That is the thing that Pen Friend does a great job on because you can
even put labels on clothing. The problem here is, if you use any custom
labels they might be thrown away by others. However, you can purchase more
labels when this happens.

Hi Steven,
You could try the product channel in the Microsoft Seeing AI app to identify

or try the Voice Dream Scanner app, to read the text on the packaging.
Both of these apps work great, but do require patience and trial and error.
I use both of them quite often, and am able to identify items in one way or

Both of these apps can be found in the app store.

Re: An Old Program

Gene
 

I haven't looked much at the page but there is a portable version which, if it is a typical portable version requires no installation. Therefore, you should see an exe file in the main folder that will run it.

If you still have problems, I modified something, I don't recall what, it was years ago, to allow me to place the file in the folder I want to generate the list for, and have the list appear in the same folder where the files are.

So I need to google some part of Inno Setup script to find out how to execute it. I don't know what Inno is but maybe google will tell me.

There is a Windows version of such a program that is far superior to

https://pathcopycopy.github.io/
This program runs from the context menu and you can do a number of
things with it. It copies long name, short name, long path, short
path. It can copy the exact file names of all the files in a folder
to clipboard and you can then paste the list into a text editor and
save it anywhere you want.

This is what I use to make text delimited databases for all my

I'm not sure. Are your speakers USB and do they serve as USB speakers? If so, you should have a built-in sound card and the speakers, each as different soundcards.

It isn't clear to me what the problem is. You said yesterday you just found out you have two sound cardds. Is one of them an external USB sound card or are they both internal sound cards?

You can tell JAWS which soundcard to use if you have two. Do the audio problems just affect JAWS or everything?

Since I don't know how things are set up on your computer in terms of which soundcard plays which audio, you may solve the problem most easily by purchasing an inexpensive external sound card, connecting it, and seeing if all audio comes from that card. If it does, that should solve the problem.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] having sound issues



I have an hp desktop. So I called MS support and they had to fix my drivers

that would not update, i guess. I asked the guy to tell me what he did and I

guess he did not get it. So they fixed it but, I do not know what they did

even though I asked him how they resolved my issues!It seems I have 2 sound

cards according to him which I did not know I did have. So I still do not

know which one jaws is using, they did not tell me! I did not get a report

of what they did after the call so if it happens again, I still do not know

how to fix it on my own! I ran the trouble shooter and it kept telling

everything was worker right but, when he did it, it said it had problems. So

wondering what he did to fix them for next time woe! Heather

This has happened to my partner after every major Windows update. She
has a Dell Lattitude and is using JAWS. Dell had her disable the Real
Tech audio drivers so the computer would use the computer speakers.
This does fix the issue but like I said, every major update
re-installs the Real Tech drivers again and this process starts all
over again. Hope this helps.

I was actually looking for a labeling alternative where I could use my
phone, and not a pen friend to read the labels. I think that way around is
the answer for me.Way around, in combination with the barcode reading
ability of seeing AI, it’s just about ideal it seems. Cannot wait to try it.

Hi Marie,
Yes, I realize that the apps I mentioned won't create labels,
but the way I read his message , it sounded like he wanted an alternative
to
labels.
There are apps that will allow you to create audio labels,
but, as has already been stated, the labels can be accidentally discarded
with the packaging.
That is why I suggested the other apps, so the packaging could be
identified
as it is removed from the freezer, refrigerator, or cabinet etc.
That is my current preference so I don't have to create so many labels.
Items I am going to keep, get labels,
and consumables such as food, are identified on an as-needed-basis.
Just suggestions, everyone has their unique situations.

HTH,
Rick

Richard,
While I use and love both of these apps, I don't think either of them will
let you create your own labels. I believe he is talking about stuff you
might put in a zip lock bag or a plastic freezer container which have no
bar
code. That is the thing that Pen Friend does a great job on because you
can
even put labels on clothing. The problem here is, if you use any custom
labels they might be thrown away by others. However, you can purchase more
labels when this happens.

Hi Steven,
You could try the product channel in the Microsoft Seeing AI app to
identify
packages by bar code,
or try the Voice Dream Scanner app, to read the text on the packaging.
Both of these apps work great, but do require patience and trial and
error.
I use both of them quite often, and am able to identify items in one way
or
another.
Both of these apps can be found in the app store.

Is there any type of system out there that would let me utilize my iPhone
to
label freezer items? I tried the PenFriend and others in my household
threw
away bags and packaging with the labels still on them, so I got rid of it.
Thanks for any ideas.

Hi Marie,
According to his last message, we both missed his intent a bit. lol
The 2 apps we were talking about have been a game-changer for me!
I may look into the way around app as well.

MY AUDIO ISSUES

heather albright
 

Well, I am thinking after all my testing that one of my speakers has a short in it! So has anyone heard of a set of speakers that does not rely on a cable to connect the other speaker. That one has to rely on a connecting cable to pare both speakers? I refuse to buy a set of speakers where one always has a connecting wire to it, rather just have one that allows one to connect both speakers manually! My speaker with the wire is the one with the short. I had to reconnect the speakers to the pc with a different audio cable to figure out it was not the audio sound card. I am not very technical about what you would call a set of speakers connected by a cable instead of one speaker having a wire that connect to the other speaker. I want to avoid this issue if the one with the wire has the short again! I only had these speakers for 5 years, my others lasted 10 years and I actually gave them to someone when I moved! Thanks Heather

go to the github site.  Find and click the latest release link. There's a link on that page called pathcopycopy18.0.exe and hes, the word copy is in it twice.  That's the installer you need.


Good luck,

Hi Howard,

There is a Windows version of such a program that is far superior to the old DOS based program or perhaps Windows 98 program you are referring to.  It is free and is called Path Copy and it's address is
https://pathcopycopy.github.io/
This program runs from the context menu and you can do a number of things with it. It copies long name, short name, long path, short path. It can copy the exact file names of all the files in a folder to clipboard and you can then paste the list into a text editor and save it anywhere you want.

This is what I use to make text delimited databases for all my music/movies/books.

Hi anyone,
Years ago, I had a program that made a text (.txt) file containing a list of the files in a given folder and put the text file in that folder.  Wonder if anyone has that little utility and could tell me where to get it and how to use it? Appreciate it. Thanks.

The way around labels are excellent, and come in several sizes and shapes.
There are even labels that can go in the freezer.
