I know. I've worked in JAWS 16 with the speech and sound schemes manager, but I found it painstaking, and it didn't seem to work right away. I made many adjustments in Word to indicate different attributes to speed up proofreading, but it took considerable tweaking and redoing.

I have not found the sounds directories under settings\enu to contain any files. I've tried versions 16, 17, 18, and 2018. Nada.

Thank you for your reply. I tried dictionary manager, and I can set a custom sound for punctuation marks, but when I try it out, the sounds are very unreliable. I can hear my sound being played only in 50% of the times. Moreover, if the punctuation is in the middle of the sentence, Jaws doesn't pause the speech and there is no particular order in which the sound is played.

Re: Accessible Software for Recovering broken .wav Files

Annabelle Susan Morison
 

By broken wave file, I mean one that came from a damaged, formatted, or
corrupt partition on a hard drive. When I go to play back a wave file,
whether it's in Audacity, Windows Media Player, or any other media player,
all I hear is loud static instead of the original 24 bit, 44,100 Khz
waveform that I recorded within Sonar.

Thank you for your reply. I tried dictionary manager, and I can set a custom sound for punctuation marks, but when I try it out, the sounds are very unreliable. I can hear my sound being played only in 50% of the times. Moreover, if the punctuation is in the middle of the sentence, Jaws doesn't pause the speech and there is no particular order in which the sound is played.

Hello all,


Is there a way to substitute punctuation marks with custom sounds? I am
a developer and often times I have to listen to tongue twisters of
punctuation marks, like "left bracket right brace left paren ..." I wish
to replace all these parens and brackets with sounds. Is there a way to
do so in Jaws?


Thanks

Tony

Hi Mario,
 
I couldn't find the sounds using the file path you posted, but instead found them here:
 
C:\ProgramData\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\16.0\SETTINGS\enu\SOUNDS
 
This is where the sounds for all Jaws versions are saved / stored.
The Sounds folder in your path was empty, & even after unhiding all files / folders it was still empty.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Right, but if one wanted to use a custom sound, it would be necessary to
know where the folder is, unless there isn't one and they are simple
part of the program.

Thanks,

Richard, the sounds may be unique to JAWS because most, if not all, come
from the VFO employees and are probably used in particular features of
JAWS). but they're plain old wav files (nothing special).

I just took a look at this.  Quite interesting.  You hit add, then tab
over to the list of sounds.

I'm curious, where do those sound files reside?

Are they part of the Windows sounds, or unique to Jaws?

Thanks,
Richard

Hello Tony,

I agree with Sieghard. there should be no reason to tether the JAWS

Re: Locking the cursors together in Excel 2013 with JAWS 2018

 

I understand about tethering them together with the keystrokes you mentioned, but I don't understand why you would want to do it.
I use Excel a lot every single day and never found a need for anything like that and wonder what he thinks this will do over just using the PC cursor to move around cells with the arrows, tab or enter or using F5 which is what I use if I quickly want to go to a cell that isn't close to where I am.
