Re: results of how to activate audio in safe mode

inthane <inthaneelf@...>
 

I do believe the number of arrow downs for "safe mode launch" can vary with the machine's manufacturer and what they have installed , I'll ask some folks around here to see if I can check on that part.

and as far as the rest goes its:
1. install the registry file
2. if your not in safe mode, start your computer in that mode when needed (or if you want to check on this things operations).
3. plug in your USB headphones or speakers (I'm going to try it with a USB sound card I have and see if that works also).
4. start the un-mirrored screen reader file running (this can be accomplished with the run command so should be easy enough if you know the path, I'd make a point to learn it for such troubleshooting use!.

--- this is all that it takes as far as I understand it...


there used to be a method somewhat like this for windows 95 98, me and I think, don't mark me on this but I think 2000 (maybe 2000)
I had a file on a floppy a dos bat file that loaded the sound card driver for the machine, and then started jaws running. it didn't work well since the safe mode drivers were very minimal and jaws was touchy about them even back then, but it did work for light maintained and essential file removal and application trashing, anti-virus work and the like.

HTH,
elf
I'm going to run this on one of my XP machines with a USB sound card I have and see how it goes, I'll use one of the other machines sitting here to write down the safe mode loading instructions as I go and give them out to the list and put them with an updated version of the "sound in safe mode" registry file that I will be putting on my site for permanent download.

Hello there;

Well, if someone is going to provide a download link for a file, shouldn't
there be some comprehensive instructions?
I see the sendspace download link, however, there's no instructions,
All I see is;

Activate Sound in SafeMode.reg

You say you "entered into safe mode". But didn't you need sighted help to
know exactly when to start pressing the F8 key to activate safe mode after
you restarted?

I just pressed enter on the file, restarted my system which is the same
as
yours, entered into safe mode, then turned on NVDA and viola it worked.
Please note, just because it worked for me, doesn't mean anyone elses
machine might be compromised. I just wanted the list to know it worked
for
me.

Awesome! Did you use speakers or a head set?

Excuse my language but holy crap! It worked on my windows 7 64 bit
machine.
After I booted into safe mode, turned on NVDA I was good to go!
I have no reason right now to go into safe mode but at least I have a
way to perform it now.

HI Dave,

Below is the SendSpace Link for the audio sound in Safe Mode .REG file.

http://www.sendspace.com/file/03tej9

I tested it before posting to make sure it works, but if it doesn't
work for you for whatever reason contact me off list & I'll send you a
Dropbox download link. Take care.
Mike

Hi, Curtis.

Did you install the program? Did it work as advertised? Did you
experience
any new problems with your system?

Hello there:

I forgot to ask in my previous post, whether anyone else had the
same
problem in not finding the two attached files to this message.

Because, if other list members did get the attached files, then
there
might
be a setting on my system which prevented me from receiving the two
attached
files.

Sincerely:
