having sound issues


heather albright
 

Hello, after the windows update, my sound is crappy, it gets really loud and than goes really low. It saids my drivers are up to date . So how do I fix this issue, it is quite annoying I am using jaws or NVDA they both have the same issue, loud and low. Thanks 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.

thank you for this I’ve been having the same sort of issues, but only when I have been using a certain program while running jaws. At one point, it messed up my wired headphones—I’ve had to reboot to make it stop and start over. Melissa

It seems to be an issue common with dell. I have an XPS 8930, and although I love the machine for the most part, I've had many issues with the sound. I finally ordered a good USB sound card and M going to forgo the onboard sound card.

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

Oh, I hate when they don't tell you what they did. It's like they're afraid that then, you will be able to do it yourself and won't call back. Not fair! Unless the guy's english was so bad he didn't know how to tell you. But that's still not fair. Pam.

Insert J, the letter U, the letter O, then arrow right. The first one in the list should say windows default. Arrow down and there should be a list of soundcards available to pick from.

If you enter on one and lose speech. Just follow the steps above and hit enter after the arrow right.

Hi,

How much does a very good USB soundcard cost? I bought a pair of high res audiophile grade headphones, and  the reviews say you definately need an external DAC/soundcard to drive them to get all the quality.

But isn't there a midrange, to high grade price range? I read around 100-200 dollars average for a good one.

I am trying to find one that supports Dolby digital sound for my audio files. I heard the Creative Sound Blaster was a good brand. Has anyone used this type of sound card? Also do you have to use proprietary software or will windows10 detect the sound card. I keep reading about them off amazon and first they say you can plug and goe and than they said you have to to use Creative Sound Blaster controls to do ajustments to the sound card. That is fine but will the drivers be accessible to jaws or NVDA? Thanks Heather ----- Original Message -----

Of course, but this does not at all mean that a midrange to high range setup is going to sound all that to you as it does to another. This is entirely up to you the user to determine because just like you can not taste anything through anyone else's mouth, you unfortunately can not hear anything through anyone else's ears.

So what sounds phenomenal to one, may not necessarily sound all that great to the next, but once again, without you the user there to determine whether or not you would like or not like… see what I am saying yet? Because after all, you may want more mustard and then again, you very well may hate mustard and not want it at all.

This also applies to actually all of our senses. What's pleasant for one is not necessarily going to be pleasant for the next. So again, it's entirely up to you to see what is best for your ears because once again, you are never going to hear anything through anyone else's ears.

What are you specifically looking for a DAC to do with? Because this may assist with giving helpful/beneficial information even though it is once again, completely and entirely up to you the one who is going to be doing the listening to determine.

The question is, at what point do you get no meaningful benefit for additional money spent? But I doubt you need to spend more than something like fifty dollars. I'm not saying you won't get better quality with more money, but will people hear it? AnI think that, beyond a certain point of spending, the headphones or speakers are much more important than the sound card.

Honestly, as much as you the user would like to pay. Very similar to most anything else within this world of ours and I am very certain that this specifically was not the answer you were seeking, but it's definitely the truth.

Hi,

How much does a very good USB soundcard cost? I bought a pair of high res audiophile grade headphones, and the reviews say you definately need an external DAC/soundcard to drive them to get all the quality.

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.

Hi, here's a place to start your research on getting a DAC:

But isn't there a midrange, to high grade price range? I read around
100-200 dollars average for a good one.

I would avoid the creative ones. There are reports online that the driver software  has bugs under 10, and that the direct mode, whith enhancements disabled,  isn't as neutral as it should be. Moreover, the enhancements would mess with NVDA or JAWS, and be annoying.

I am trying to find one that supports Dolby digital  sound for my audio files. I heard the Creative Sound Blaster was a good brand. Has anyone used this type of sound card? Also do you have to use proprietary software or will windows10 detect the sound card. I keep reading about them off amazon and first they say you can plug and goe and than they said you have to  to use Creative Sound Blaster  controls to do ajustments to the sound card. That is fine but will the drivers be accessible to jaws or NVDA? Thanks Heather  ----- Original Message ----- From: "enes sarıbaş" <enes.saribas@gmail.com>

I want to play my dramatized audiobook collection over my Philipps fedilio hr2 headphones, with are high res enabled. I want it to be future proof, and support MQA and high 24-32 bit audio  if I am interested in listening to these.

Of course, but this does not at all mean that a midrange to high range setup is going to sound all that to you as it does to another. This is entirely up to you the user to determine because just like you can not taste anything through anyone else's mouth, you unfortunately can not hear anything through anyone else's ears.

So what sounds phenomenal to one, may not necessarily sound all that great to the next, but once again, without you the user there to determine whether or not you would like or not like… see what I am saying yet? Because after all, you may want more mustard and then again, you very well may hate mustard and not want it at all.

This also applies to actually all of our senses. What's pleasant for one is not necessarily going to be pleasant for the next. So again, it's entirely up to you to see what is best for your ears because once again, you are never going to hear anything through anyone else's ears.

What are you specifically looking for a DAC to do with? Because this may assist with giving helpful/beneficial information even though it is once again, completely and entirely up to you the one who is going to be doing the listening to determine.

Gene, the 200 dollars is apparently the midrange for a DAC.

There isn't anything even worth consideration under 75.

I did my research, and it looks like the zen dac by ifi is good to meet my needs.
