compressing large files


Marianne Denning
 

I am running JAWS 17 and Windows 7.  I need to compress a large file so I can email it.  How can I do that with JFW?

can you explain what you want to do, and what type of file or files you want to compress? there are some formats that will not significantly compress, thus wasting your time. but if you're wanting to package them up into a zip file:

with the file or files selected, press the applications key or if you don't have one, press shift+f10. arrow down to the send to dialog and press enter, and arrow to and enter on compressed... you can then type a name for the file + the dot .zip extension or accept the default name and press enter. note the name of the zip file.

It is a recording of a lesson with a student.  We used Sound Recorder for the recording and need to send it to other teachers so we are all on the same page.  Thanks!  Let me know if I would do it any differently based on your instructions.

do you know what format the recording is? if it's an mp3, it is a compressed audio file and will not significantly compress any further. but if it is a wav format, converting it to an mp3 or other format will result in about 1/40th of the size, depending on what what format it's converted to.
if you know or can find out what frequency, bit rate, and if it is a monaurial or stereo recording, it might be possible to shrink it a bit to a suitable size. or, and this is probly not possible, rerecording it at a different frequency, bit rate, and a single channel (mono) might result in a smaller size, but am not sure of the recording quality that will result.

Hi Marianne,
 
What size is the zipped file?  Depending on your ISP, anything over 5MB to 10 MB might be too big to email.
Take care.
Mike
This email was sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!

Sound Recorder won't do stereo, far as I can tell.

You probably can't send a large file as an e-mail attachment. Most providers have limits between 1 and 10 mb. In any case, zipping a file is always a good idea. Many uncompressed files are posted to SendSpace and seem to download without problems. Only after spending an hour or two listening to the file do you find problems that a quick test of the zip file would detect.
