Re: Any good Hex Editors?

What's interesting is, when I look at the Properties dialog box of the file, there are bits of information missing, such as "Length", "Bit Rate", "Size", and "Owner". How do I fix that?

Hi,

 

Ah, in which case I’m not sure how to fix it, since Audacity is what I would have used myself to try and import and then export with, you mentioned you’ve tried importing it as raw data, I don’t know too much about this, but if you try and play it in raw data format in audacity it won’t work  if its corrupt, you would then need to go to export  as audio and then save it somewhere making sure in the save as window you have selected file type as WAV. Then find the file you’ve just saved and see if that plays correctly. Unfortunately other than that I’m not too sure of anything else I can suggest to help,,  sorry. Hope you manage to get it all sorted though.

 

Paul

I've tried importing the .wav file into an audio editor like Audacity as "Raw Data", but all I get is static noise, instead of the original audio.

In some quick searching, both UltraEdit and NotePad++ are both mentioned as having hex editor plugins.

There also was a freeware hex editor mentioned called HXD.

How accessible any of these are, I have no idea.

Hi,

Although I don’t know any good hex editors, in fact for that matter I’m not sure I even know what one is lol. But as an alternative  solution , you could try converting the broken wav file to a different file format, which makes a new version of the sound and may fix the broken attributes too, , then you can just re convert the file back to WAV. There are plenty of online sites that will convert WAV to another format. I do a little programing to write audio games, , and every now and again I’ll come across a wav file that won’t play, in which case I just add the wav file to my music editor software , then export it back out as a WAV file, which is doing the same as I mentioned above , but just using the program I have, but that’s always worked in the past. I’ve put the link for two  websites below, one which converts files from WAV to mp3, and then another which converts mp3 files to WAV. Hopefully this fixes your issue, but if you have any problems, if it’s just one WAV file that’s broken if you can find a way of sending me the WAV file I can always try running it through my music  editing software and seeing if that fixes it for you. Anyways, the links are below

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I found something interesting on the Internet, about how to fix broken .wav files that won't open in any players. Someone named Scott Hanselman said something about using a binary file editor, specifically a Hex editor, to fix the headers. However, I'm not sure where I can find any good Hex editors that would work with JAWS. Anybody have any pointers? I've tried Notepad++, but all I get when I read the file line-by-line is a bunch of weird code.

No, the only time I use the FN key is when I want to raise or lower the volume, or turn on or off the touch screen.

it's a toggle one turns on the function keys, another press turns off the function keys.

Hi Maria!

Well, to be precise, what I am saying is that it works as a toggle between 1) Lenovo hot keys and 2) standard function keys - not "JAWS Keys." "JAWS Keys", technically, refers to the (typically) insert key plus some other key used to activate some JAWS operation. Of course, often for a laptop the CAPS becomes the JAWS key.

Hello,
I remember that on a Lenovo system I had that I was able to go into
the control panel/keyboard and go to a tab that says Lenovo keyboard
or something to this extent. From there, I was able to select use fn
key with f keys or classic keyboard layout. Once I selected classic
keyboard layout all worked as it should. This was a computer with
Windows 7 though.
I would go into the keyboard options and see what tabs are there.

I have yet to see a laptop where you can't disable the TouchPad with a Function Key. Just ask a sighted person to look at the symbols on the function keys and then if you find one that looks promising press it together with the FN key.

For my Lenovo, I was able to go into my "Mouse Properties (Touchpad)" from the Start menu and disable the touchpad there.

Hello. I regret that in my last post, I gave an incorrect link to download Firefox 52 ESR. The wrong link was inadvertently copied to my clipboard. I am giving a corrected post below.

 

Is Firefox Quantum Accessible to Visually Impaired Persons Using JAWS?

 

When Firefox v57 came out, there were many issues for visually impaired persons using Job Access with Speech (JAWS) text-to-speech software to access the

web via speech.  Some of these issues were later addressed.

 

Before I update to Firefox Quantum, do you know if it works well with JAWS.  JAWS is vended by Freedom Scientific in St. Petersburg, FL.

 

hi, users of jaws version 18 and below are encouraged to switch to firefox 52 (the extended support release) at the moment, as it would cause severe performance

degradation in quantum.

 

Below is a link where you can download Firefox ESR 32-bit US, English

Goode morning,

 

Is there something I don’t know about regarding JAWS and Firefox?

Up until recently, I was running JAWS 18 but must have been running an old version of Firefox because I was told I needed to update due to having an outdated version.

I then first removed and then re-installed and updated Firefox but didn’t think about JAWS until I was told something about tab content and presentation not being available due to my screen reading software.  I updated to JAWS 2018.  Now, Firefox is Incredibly Sluggish! I’m not even sure if it’s crashing on me. I can’t really be productive due to its speed.

Is something wrong with it being compatible with the latest JAWS?  What should I do?  I don’t know if it’s my computer or not.

Internet Explorer still works; although, some sites I frequent work better with Firefox.  Does anyone have any thoughts?

Jim

Re: levono hot keys and touchpad

There are two issues here. First all recent Lenovo Laptops are being shipped with hotkey mode enabled which prevents using the regular F Keys with jaws without Pressing them together with the FN Key. This can only be disabled in bios. Once disabled they can be used as always. Thats where the second issue is comming from because with hotkey mode enabled you only have to press F6 in order to disable the touchpad thus resulting in enabling and disabling the pad as soon as F6 is used again without FN. I had to disable hotkey mode in Bios to finally solve the Problem. Lenovo just switched the function keys to be primary and the regular F Keys secondary with the hotkey mode enabled.

Hi, Jim. The last version of Firefox you can run is Firefox version 56. Version 57 or Quantum, will not work with JAWS. This will not be fixed until at least May of this year. I suggest installing Firefox ESR, or downgrading to at least Firefox 56, some say Firefox 52 is even better.

You will have to go into the BIOS and check the boot order there. No
Windows program that I know of will help here.
