moderated JAWS and SAPI conflicts


Gene Warner
 

Just tried turning off audio ducking and it didn't make any difference.

And the idea isn't to get one to talk over the other, it's to get them to stop doing it, JAWS cooperates, but SAPI doesn't.

Hi Jean,
Here's a thought. Why not turn up the volume of your SAPI app in the volume settings, you can turn up the volume of any individual app. Then turn off audio ducking, which is a pain anyway.
All the best

No, it is a JAWS setting, and it is in the settings center.
1. press insert+6 to get into settings center 2. expand the user settings group.
3. Arrow down until you find Audio ducking.
Unless you pressed control+shift+D to get the default system wide settings, it will tell you that audio ducking is only available in the default settings. Otherwise it will tell you checked or unchecked.

Oh JAWS has an audio ducking setting, but its a global setting, its not something you can have on for some programs and off for others.

Plenty of programmes made without screen-readers in mind are totally accessible -- but I don't suppose it would occur to someone creating software for mainstream use that uses a kind of voice alert, to suppose that someone might actuallyb e accessing the computer generally with voice output.

No it wasn't made with screen readers in mind, though I do find the program to be quite accessible.

If I could turn off audio ducking for only one program, I would do that, but as it is a global setting, I'd rather leave it on.

I liked having the email announcements in another voice from JAWS, but having JAWS read the announcements might be my best option for now.

You could also turn off JAWS's audio ducking. Maybe that could help somewhat with missing what's being said.

Subject: JAWS and SAPI conflicts

Hi everyone!

I have a small program that sits in the system tray, also known as the notification area, called Pop Peeper, it monitors my email account(s) and notifies me if there are any new messages waiting. I have it set up to notify me by voice with the subject of the new messages and it uses SAPI 5.

Inter JAWS. If JAWS is speaking and Pop Peeper wants to speak, it does, but JAWS' audio ducking almost mutes it so I miss what it was saying.
Oddly enough, if Pop Peeper is speaking and JAWS wants to talk, it wait's until Pop Peeper is done speaking before it takes over.

So, I'm wondering if there is a way to get the SAPI 5 voice being used by Pop Peeper to wait for JAWS just as JAWS waits for it.

If any one has any ideas, I'd appreciate hearing about them.

Thanks!
Gene...

Yep, Insert Space and then D. But it is global, it is not app specific.

Hi Jean,

Have you tried turning off audio ducking, to see if that is what is affecting the conflict?

Inter JAWS. If JAWS is speaking and Pop Peeper wants to speak, it does, but JAWS' audio ducking almost mutes it so I miss what it was saying. Oddly enough, if Pop Peeper is speaking and JAWS wants to talk, it wait's until Pop Peeper is done speaking before it takes over.

So, I'm wondering if there is a way to get the SAPI 5 voice being used by Pop Peeper to wait for JAWS just as JAWS waits for it.

If any one has any ideas, I'd appreciate hearing about them.

Thanks!
