Open the System Tray with Windows+b or insert+f11.
Arrow to Dropbox and hit enter, that should bring up the context menu.
Arrow to Preferences.
You will have lots of tabs, right arrow to the Sync tab and explore those settings.
HTH,

Well, I am not a dropbox expert, but there is a parameter in dropbox which controls whether your computer syncs with dropbox and that should be on -- I don't know where that is, but that is the one to look for.

Re: Audio drivers not working.

Dave Durber
 

David:
 
How old is your HP computer?
 
Did you upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, using the Windows 10 upgrade utility or, did you install a fresh installation of Windows 10?
 
I performed a fresh installation of Windows 10 Professional last year, replacing Windows 7 professional, on an HP Pavillion DV6 laptop, which I purchased in 2012. It is running the latest update of JAWS 2021 and the system is fully up-to-date with Windows 10. So far, I have had kno problems with the audio function using this laptop.
 
Personally, I have never trusted Microsoft's upgrade utilities, to migrate any system, from an existing version of Windows, to a new version of Windows, despite the aggrovation of installing and setting up the software in the new operating system.

Subject: Audio drivers not working.

        I know this is a stretch but, I don’t think I’m on the windows group anymore.  My audio driver does not work.  The explanation is, after the latest windows update, the HP windows 7, upgraded to windows 10, could not handle the new update and the audio driver crashed.  Because of the age, apparently there are no audio drivers available for Win 7 H P computers.  Thus, tying this in with JAWS, no audio driver, no sound from any screen reader. 


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

Dave Durber
 

Soronel:

Under the JAWS Utilities > Sound Card Submenue, I have JAWS set to use the on-board sound card., I have Windows set to have all other audio use the USB sound card.

Before I installed the latest version of Total Recorder, and I started recording from an online stream or, from an external source, JAWS continued using the on-board sound card and therefore was not included in the recording, which meant, for example, I could monitor how much time had elapsed, since the recording had started.

Which sound card is total recorder actually set to use (check
regardless of what you had it set to prior to this update)?

If it's set to use the on-board audio it would not surprise me if it
selects some kind of exclusive mode forcing jaws onto the USB audio.
If this is indeed the case then setting total recorder to use the USB
audio should take care of your problem.

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.

Re: Audio drivers not working.

 

If the machine still boots into Windows 10, I'd recommend:  Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

I realize if you have no access to screen reader output you'll need a sighted assistant.  You wouldn't if you had audio.  But this gets you as close to a completely clean reinstall of Windows 10 as you can get without actually doing one, and your user data files and your installed applications are retained.

If that still doesn't do the trick, I agree with Glenn that you should go to the manufacturer's support pages for your specific make/model and download the most recent device driver(s) available for the device(s) that still don't function.

If that doesn't work, then I'd suspect hardware failure.  But that would only be a suspicion without additional diagnosis.

Well, that can be true, if you're buying from an amateur "refurbisher." It's absolutely false if you're buying an OEM factory refurbished machine.  Those ship from their manufacturers having been absolutely, completely reviewed for functionality and their drives freshly reimaged.  No OEM would ever ship out a machine that could have residual data on it from whatever source it came from for refurbishing.  They're also generally "like new," with any components that might need to be replaced having been so.

That's why I often recommend factory OEM refurbished machines for those on a budget.  And I've bought multiple factory refurbished machines myself.  Very often they've just been opened and cannot be sold again as new.  And you can get business class machines off lease, and refurbished, for very good prices and they're more durable than consumer grade hardware.

Hey guys,

So this problem really has me confused. It's almost like it's not
sinking the right way. When I go to the dropbox Icon it says up to
date. Now, when I load the dropbox app on my iphoen, I see files
there that are in dropbox, that didn't make it to my local machine.
Yet it says it's up to date. I have smart sink turned off, and I have
it set to local. Any experts here on dropbox who can help?

He really should invest in a better headset.  Anyway he got us to do a restore from 10 days prior to the sound card crashing, that was useless.  Still the same problem, no sound.  I took it to a chain of stores who have computer techs there and one of them told me, he suspects the culprit is the latest windows update as what I thought was the culprit, I installed a demo of Total recorder on my lap top and that’s when it all happened.  He said it could not have been the installation of total recorder. Total recorder strongly suggests before purchasing any of their products, you try it out first.  Once you purchase the product, no refunds are forth coming.

It works if you press Windows+B. Find Dropbox and press Enter.

Hey guys,

OK, having some pretty major dropbox issues, and am hoping someone can
help. Is it me, or is dropbox not accessible in terms of the app? So
here's my issue. I use a program on my phone to record some stuff and
it goes to dropbox directly from that app. The good news, it's going
there. The bad news, I can't determine whether my local dropbox on an
external harddrive is sinking properly. It says when i hit insert
f11, and arrow up and down until I find dropbox, it says, dropbox, and
it reads a bunch of numbers, and it says up to date. So when I press
enter on that Icon it says nothing. I suspect something isn't sinking
properly or something. So, what's the best way to make adjustments in
the dropbox app? It hardly seems accessible at all. I'm running the
latest jaws 2021. Can someone help?

Cheers,

Jed

Re: Audio drivers not working.

Usb headset, under $20.  Some things just shouldn't be upgraded.

Usually you can roll back updates and as well as driver updates.

That will take assistance  so disability desk may be good place to start.

Re: Audio drivers not working.

 

None of what you describe is probable.

Windows 7 will not update to Windows 10 if there are critical drivers (usually chipset drivers for the motherboard not available).  Virtually any driver I've ever tried from the Windows 7 or Windows 8 eras will run under Windows 10.  And there are Microsoft generic drivers for virtually any piece of hardware that you can name that will make them minimally serviceable in most cases.

This really is a question for the Windows 10 for Screen Reader User's group.  And if you post it there you should include the make and exact model of the machine, the Windows 10 version and build, whether things had been working under Windows 10 until a certain update was applied (and check version history to determine which one).  I realize this may require sighted assistance, since your sound is completely out at the moment, but without accurate background information these issues are extremely difficult to diagnose correctly and to apply the correct fix for.
