You can likely go to the site of the maker and put in the model and download all the drivers for it, maybe even recovery media.

It came to me as a refurbished lap top with windows 10 installed. Brian could answer this perhaps. When I took it to the tech after getting no where with MS help desk 1st teer then 2nd teer tech support, the tech at the chain of stores, told me when they refurbish a computer, all they do is look for the immediate problems, then ship it out. Which to mean they note that the audio driver or another driver is on it’s last legs, so to speak, they don’t fix it just send it out.

Do you have some older audio drivers for that computer?

If so, I would delete the audio device in device manager, then install the old driver, and reboot.

So it's certainly signed in. The problem is, it doesn't appear to be
sinking properly. Any ideas?

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.

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.

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

Soronel Haetir
 

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?

Richard:



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.

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?

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

Re: audio description

Sadly, the providers have to pass through what the network is sending.

Something they seem to not do consistently.

One clear example is Call The Midwife.  One of my wife’s favorite shows so I watched with her.  I did enjoy it as well.

While I was a subscriber to OPB, I could use their Passport app to stream content.

If I streamed it, there was audio description.

If I watched the same episode on OPB, no audio description came through though it said it was available.

Neither side will admit responsibility for the audio description not coming through.

 

Best of luck,

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.

Very odd, in that this doesn't sound like the typical lock screen when the machine goes to sleep, but "a Dell thing."  But if that Dell screen is replacing the standard Windows 10 lock screen, it may still be controllable in Windows 10 settings (to follow).  If it isn't, then you need to talk to Dell.

Settings, System, Power & Sleep - Check your settings there so that they're what you'd prefer.  I never have my machines sleep when they're on AC power, though I do have the screen turn off.

Settings, Accounts, Sign-in Options Pane, then the Require Sign-in dropdown in the pane.  It has the question text, "When you've been away, when should Windows require you to sign in again?"  Set it to Never.

See what happens then.
