[access-uk] Re: creative Soundblaster

HI Andy,

OK, I am not absolutely sure of which socket this would be, other than it will be on the back panel as opposed to the front, but I have a feeling that it will b the front socket as the back I would assume relates to the back speakers if you have surround sound.

Let me know how you get on.

Audrey

Hi again Audrey

I have backed up the ini file and created a new modified ini file, in another directory. I'll swap them around when I'm ready to make the change.

I'm just about to setup the software for the Soundblaster, so hopefully I can do this without sighted assistance.

Regarding the speaker system. As I mentioned, I have two little speakers that sit on either side of my display and a larger central speaker that sits underneath. I

After I've installed the software, I need to plug the speakers into the card, but I'm not sure of the socket that this goes into. Below is a list of all the sockets, perhaps you can identify which one I use.



Back Panel:



C/sub

Rear

Front

Line in

Spdif out

Din

Usb



Front Panel:



Optical out

Mic in

phones




Best wishes. Andy

HI Andy,
Glad you found the INI file. OK, this looks good, in fact you have the same soundcard for the onboard one as I do, smiles. the only thing I would recommend is you delete the blank line there is between the synth1 long name equals and the synth1 port equals. I do have an idea that this matters some how. Also I have a capital letter S for the Synth1 and a capital letter for the P of Port, even though they are close up together. I am not sure if this matters or not, but it won't harm to do it the same. I also quite agree with you having a backup file in case this does not go right.


As to how you go about doing this, I would install the other card first and make it default before you move jaws over. Then make the changes to the INI file and restart Jaws. You should find Jaws coming from the other card from then on.

Hope all this Helps.

Audrey

Hi again Audrey.

Since my message earlier this evening, I have managed to identify the JAWS.INI file, copy this and followed your instructions. Below is what I think you want me to do;




[Options]
; If FirewallCheck is set to 1, JAWS will attempt to check if a firewall
; application is running by prematurely triggering the firewall when
; JAWS starts. This setting is off by default and is ignored when JAWS
; is set to run at Windows startup.
FirewallCheck=0


AskRunJAWSFirst=0
[Initialization]
SetupPath="C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{89851E6C-002C-4AFA-9223-1EE4E96FA320}\SETUP.EXE"
[Synthesizers]
Synth1Name=eloq
Synth1LongName=Eloquence for JAWS


synth1port=Realtek AC97 Audio
Synth1Driver=eloq
Synth2Name=NoSpeech
Synth2LongName=No Speech
Synth2Driver=nospeech
Synth3Name=SAPI 5X
Synth3LongName=SAPI 5
Synth3Driver=sapi5x





If this is correct then I'm doing not too bad, touch wood.

Andy

HI Andy,

Firstly I certainly would put jaws through another set of speakers, the INI file is the jfw.ini file in the jaws that you have. You will need to insert the line
synth1port=
followed by the exact name of your onboard soundcard. The best way to find this is to go to control panel then sounds and audio devices and look for the soundcard that is the onboard one. Virtualise the window with insert plus control and W . Now copy to the clipboard the exact name of your soundcard. Open the jfw.ini file and go down to the line that says, Synth1LongName=Eloquence for JAWS, or it could say another name, depending on how your jaws is set. The important thing is the synth1 long name =. Immediately under this line you should type
Synth1Port=
immediately followed by the name of your onboard soundcard. This should be placed following the = sign with no space or it will not work. The phrase should be on a line of it's own and immediately followed by the next line. please be very careful doing this as you could lose jaws if it is not done correctly! However, I do advise you to do it in this way, as you say that you will be making recordings. I do a lot of shoutcast broadcasting and find that this must be done in order not to hear jaws all over what you are broadcasting and the same will take effect if you are making recordings. You will also find this useful to be able to do other things on the PC whilst making any recordings. Using this setting, I am able to write e-mail, converse on MSN, look at web pages, and all manner of things whilst music is playing over the other card. Please also be aware that until you restart jaws, this will not take effect.


I do hope this helps.

Audrey

Hi again Audrey.

That's magic. I'd much rather not tamper about with the on-board card as I may give this computer to someone else if I upgrade later.

You said "you will need to insert a line into the INI > " Can you expand a bit on that as I don't understand what you mean: I'm assuming that the ini is some form of jaws boot up file?

You also said "need an extra small pair of speakers or separate headphones to hear jaws from another source. " I'm hoping to continue hearing jaws on my existing computer speakers but have an optical coming from my DVD recorder to the optical line-line in on the Soundblaster. So although I'll be hoping to switch the optical lin from in to out, in the main, it will be on the in position for most of the time, to in order me to record ad material from my dvd recorder to GoldWave on my computer.

However, if I need a second pair of speakers, I can pick a pair up tomorrow from PC World when I go for the Sound Blaster.

Any ;more advise would be very welcomed and thanks again for responding to my enquiry.

Best wishes.
Andy

HI Andy,

Yes, this should be possible, as you already have your onboard soundcard enabled. A lot of people, when they get another sound card installed by someone, get the old card disabled as the person installing it thinks they can't want 2 of them. I had the devil's own job explaining this to the last technician that installed soundcards on my PC. My advice at this stage, would be to make the new card the default card and the onboard card the backup. If you are using Jaws, you will need to insert a line into the INI file that tells jaws to go to the onboard card. You will also need an extra small pair of speakers or separate headphones to hear jaws from another source. Let me know if you need further help.

Audrey

Hi all.

I'm planning to travel into PC World in Glasgow tomorrow to purchase the creative Soundblaster live 24 bit external soundcard,

Can anyone confirm that with this card attached, I will be able to hold onto my existing on-board sound card for jaws, and use the new external card for listening to my music or ad movies, which I have on my computer. I use Winamp for all of my audio stuff.

Finally, if the above is possible, is setting this up achievable without sighted assistance.

Thanks.
Best wishes.
Andy
