Re: JAWS 13 on a new pc, speech cutting off too soon


Good suggestion.

In fact, this was what I was thinking, too.
Because this new pc does have 2 sound cards.
When I went through the customize ordering of the Dell, I selected this one.
It is a Sound blaster X-Fi Xtreme audio card, and it is installed in an expansion slot.

This behavior I described has been there right from the beginning. I thought I would look in the JAWS utilities under sound cards. And sure enough the setting had the checkbox on Windows default. The Soundblaster was listed there. So I hit enter on that, and now it is checked. Sadly, however, my problem remains.

Might I need to reinstall JAWS or something?
I should add, that the reading is fine until the end of any string of text when it cuts off too early.
Even in reading menus or whatever it is not finishing the word.

Rik, do you have another soundcard or audio device you can try
putting Jaws Through on that machine? If so, go to Jaws, U for
Utilities, O for Sound Cards, and you can specify a different sound
device for Jaws there.
