Glen,

This may also be your provider.

I have an old gripe with Xfinity and Oregon Public Broadcasting, (OPB).

Many shows that are broadcast have Audio Description, unless you are trying to access it through Xfinity and OPB combined.  That same show, broadcast at the same time, in another state, has audio description; but not here.

OPB blames Xfinity, Xfinity blames OPB.

 

I’ve gotten nowhere and stopped supporting OPB, which is a minor drop in a vast bucket; but it may be that the show is providing it, but it is not making it through your local provider.

I see a lot of shows in my TV listings showing audio description, but when I turn on audio description, there is either nothing there, or part of the audio is missing from the show, like you will get everything but dialog.

I think some channels don't want to be hounded by the FCC, so they say that they are providing audio description, when they are sometimes not.

So far, I have been able to use Total Recorder, as is, without any scripts. I am not aware of any scripts for Total Recorder. If anyone knows of any scripts, I would be very interested.

Well, first, it sounds like a note to both Jaws and Total Recorder could be in Order.

But, if you do not need Jaws talking while you are recording, you could put it in speech on demand.

Ubt if you are used to being able to check things with jaws while it is running, then it sounds like something changed on the programming side of the world.

Is there a script for this program that could be updated if you contacted the script author?

Before I start recording, JAWS speach is definitely using the on-board sound card. When I press the Record button and start recording, this is when JAWS speach is routed through the USB sound card. When I press the Stop Button, and stop recording, JAWS speach is again routed through the on-board sound card.

Hello Everyone:

 

I am using the latest update to JAWS 2021 and the system I am referring too, is up-to-date with Windows 10.

 

In addition to the on-board sound card, I am using a Creative Labs Sound Blaster USB sound card.

 

By default, I have JAWS using the on-board sound card and the rest of the audio using the USB sound card.

 

Earlier today, I downloaded and installed the latest version of Total Recorder. Prior to doing that, whenever I have updated Total Recorder, JAWS speach has never been included in any recording.

 

However, When I tried to record something, using the latest version of Total Recorder, JAWS speach is being routed through the USB sound card and therefore being included in the recording.

 

Has anyone else had this problem, if so, how did you stop JAWS speach being included in your recordings?

 

Thank you in anticipation.

When I come to this screen I usually have to go to the power button and restart the computer. How can I fix so I do not have to deal with this computer screen problem. Any help will be appreciated.

I think it is not too much to ask for someone to send more information.

When on a petition page especially.  There is always a description of the petition, or the entire thing can be copied and easily pasted into a message.

I often do this with articles, instead of just the link, to make reading easier for folks.

It's just laziness on someone's part to not paste the information into a message.

Since you didn't provide any links it would be nice to give a bit more information as to what this petition is all about. I know you say "Audio Description" in the subject, but this is pretty vague.

You’ll need to change your power and sleep settings to turn off this function.

Subject: windows 10 help with jaws

 

On my new computer which I am slowly changing, I have the latest Jaws, I am having a issue windows 10. When I leave the computer for a short time the computer goes to a screen which has buttons on it such as screen lock, Internet, power, ease of access, and a few other buttons. When I come to this screen I usually have to go to the power button and restart the computer. How can I fix so I do not have to deal with this computer screen problem. Any help will be appreciated.

I have not used Total Recorder, but have you opened the Jaws menu with insert=j and under utilities, Sound card, see if jaws is indeed going to the USB and reselecting the onboard soundcard?

Subject: How can I stop JAWS speach being included in recordings using the latest version of Total Recorder ?

 

Hello Everyone:

 

I am using the latest update to JAWS 2021 and the system I am referring too, is up-to-date with Windows 10.

 

In addition to the on-board sound card, I am using a Creative Labs Sound Blaster USB sound card.

 

By default, I have JAWS using the on-board sound card and the rest of the audio using the USB sound card.

 

Earlier today, I downloaded and installed the latest version of Total Recorder. Prior to doing that, whenever I have updated Total Recorder, JAWS speach has never been included in any recording.

 

However, When I tried to record something, using the latest version of Total Recorder, JAWS speach is being routed through the USB sound card and therefore being included in the recording.

 

Has anyone else had this problem, if so, how did you stop JAWS speach being included in your recordings?

 

Thank you in anticipation.

 

Dave Durber

Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

I have an old pair of the Plantronics BackBeat Sense headphones that are both cable and wireless.
While using the cable, the battery is not used.
I don't know if they are still made, but these have very good sound and not much leakage if any.
HTH,

Subject: slightly off topic: over ear headphones recommendations?

Hello,

'twas a very sad day today as my trusty headphones decided they would bite the dust and shuffle off for a place in the headphone retirement home, Rochdale public rubbish dump. I am in the market for a good pair of over-ear headphones with minimal sound leakage, low levels of lag and great sound. I'm unsure how to set up wireless headphones, and so therefore something with a wire would be useful; I have however heard about wired/wireless combos, however unsure how well they work with jaws and avoiding lag etc?

Any recommendations would be appreciated.
All the best,
- James

If the El Braille is going to be viable as a braille note taker, it should have native support on the Focus for brf files in the book reader, which means you have to put the brf on the SD card.
I don't have one; so cannot advise further.

Thanks, Chris.

Someone on the ElBraille list told me recently that because ElBraille is a Windows PC in notetaker form, DAISY format with the FS Reader app is the only way to go.

I would have no problem downloading as a BRF--except that I am unaware of what program I could use on the ElBraille to read BRF. I did this easily back when I was using a BrailleNote or, previously, a PAC Mate.
Would I need to install something like OpenBook or Kurzweil 1000 on the ElBraille to read BRFs?

Kind regards,

-Kane
