Hi, Don. I was telling Tom that the link to Silenzio was for the wrong program. The link that Tom sent was to an Italian avatar instead of a link to the program to send silence to a sound card.

Hi all,

Immediately after installing JAWS 2021 this morning, I noticed that
speech at the beginning of words was being cut off when moving
around in dialog boxes, list views, et cetera. As you can well
imagine, the situation was intolerable and crazy-making . If this
happens to you after installing Fusion or JAWS 2021, you need to do
the following to solve the problem.

Step 1, press Insert+6 on the number row to get into Settings Center.
Step 2, press ctrl+shift+D to switch to the default settings.
Step 3, in the search box, type the word cut. Wait a few seconds
for the search results list to populate. You should see only one result.
It’s an unchecked checkbox with a label that reads as follows.

Avoid speech cutoff when using Bluetooth headphones or some sound cards.

If you tab away from that checkbox to read the explanatory text,
you should see some text that says

“Many modern Bluetooth headphones and speakers shut down after a
while of not receiving sound to conserve battery. If this check box
is selected, JAWS will keep them awake by constantly playing
silence. You will not hear anything, but your device will remain
active, resulting in more consistent speech.
Note that the battery of your headphones/speakers could drain
faster if you turn this on.
This check box is cleared by default.”

End of explanatory text.

Checking that checkbox will eliminate the speech cutoff. However,
the side effect is that some events will trigger a reduction in
speech volume, which can be troublesome if you’re only using a
laptop’s speakers. I compensated for this dip in volume by using
powered, wired external speakers.

Step 4, tab to the Apply button and press Enter or the space bar.
Step 5, tab to OK and press Enter to close Settings Center.

Note: The checkbox referenced in step 3 above is unchecked by
default in JAWS 2020 and Fusion 2020, and there is no speech cutoff.
So this is a bug which was apparently introduced in 2021 which
needs to be reported to Freedom Scientific.

I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any questions.

If you  are running windows 10 especially the latest versions of windows 10 jaws 18 isn’t going to play well with it. You need to ask your employer for the latest version of Jaws.

I'd start by grabbing a demo of a newer Jaws version.  Fact is, windows is evolving and using an old jaws on a newer version of windows could cause problems.

Like you, the sound card for my HP laptop was working fine with no problem, after I installed Windows 10. However, after about 3 months, for no reason, JAWS would stop speaking, audio files and audio in vidio files sometimes did not play at all or, they would play but, there would be little breaks of silence or, the audio would become choppy. since I installed Silenzio, there are times where JAWS will stop speaking for no apparent reason butthe the good thing is, all my audio files and audio in video files, so far, now play properly.
 
When I installed Windows 10 on the other computers we have, before installing JAWS, I used Narrator to installed Silenzio on them, to hedge my bets to potentially avoid this problem occurring on those systems as well.
 
I never needed a program like Silenzio using Windows XP or Windows 7 because, I never had the type of audio problems in the way I have with Windows 10.

The one Mike is posting is spelled with a c and is likely what folks are looking for.

Spelling counts.

I have no need for this as my sound card in my Del laptop is working fine.

However, I noticed that the download from Sourceforge was spelled with a z not a c.  the one with the z is some Italian software that hasn’t been updated since 2013.

The one Mike is posting is spelled with a c and is likely what folks are looking for.

Spelling counts.

Hi, Tom. This is the wrong Silenzio.

Hi,
I found it at Sourceforge. It’s a relatively small zip file at 7.5 megs. You can get it at:

Hi Chris,
I looked for Silenzio yesterday and couldn’t find it. Do have a link to it, or is it small enough to send it to me?
Thanks,

Better yet, install silenzio, then you can still use audio ducking.

Hi all,

Immediately after installing JAWS 2021 this morning, I noticed that
speech at the beginning of words was being cut off when moving
around in dialog boxes, list views, et cetera. As you can well
imagine, the situation was intolerable and crazy-making . If this
happens to you after installing Fusion or JAWS 2021, you need to do
the following to solve the problem.

Step 1, press Insert+6 on the number row to get into Settings Center.
Step 2, press ctrl+shift+D to switch to the default settings.
Step 3, in the search box, type the word cut. Wait a few seconds
for the search results list to populate. You should see only one result.
It’s an unchecked checkbox with a label that reads as follows.

Avoid speech cutoff when using Bluetooth headphones or some sound cards.

If you tab away from that checkbox to read the explanatory text,
you should see some text that says

“Many modern Bluetooth headphones and speakers shut down after a
while of not receiving sound to conserve battery. If this check box
is selected, JAWS will keep them awake by constantly playing
silence. You will not hear anything, but your device will remain
active, resulting in more consistent speech.
Note that the battery of your headphones/speakers could drain
faster if you turn this on.
This check box is cleared by default.”

End of explanatory text.

Checking that checkbox will eliminate the speech cutoff. However,
the side effect is that some events will trigger a reduction in
speech volume, which can be troublesome if you’re only using a
laptop’s speakers. I compensated for this dip in volume by using
powered, wired external speakers.

Step 4, tab to the Apply button and press Enter or the space bar.
Step 5, tab to OK and press Enter to close Settings Center.

Note: The checkbox referenced in step 3 above is unchecked by
default in JAWS 2020 and Fusion 2020, and there is no speech cutoff.
So this is a bug which was apparently introduced in 2021 which
needs to be reported to Freedom Scientific.

I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have any questions.

Tom

Subject: Key echo and the backspace key of JAWS 2021

 

Hello,

Do any of you notice this behavior when using JAWS 2021? I’m writing a document, and sometimes, when I need to backspace, JAWS doesn’t repeat the character that’s been deleted through that method—the backspace key. It’s happened about three times now, and I have my key echo set to words. However, I don’t think this should have any problem, as for now in the currently typed message, the backspace works fine/as usual. This is the only bug I’ve found so far with the new JAWS.

Thank you,

Ashleigh Piccinino
