[audacity4blind] Re: recording JAWS output

David,

Thanks for the info.  I think that is where virtual audio cable can come in.  

You set your default audio output device in control panel sounds and audio 
devices to be virtual cable 1's input the microphone is set to virtual cable 
2's input the outputs from both virtual cable 1 and 2 are sent to the headset 
and to audacity's input so you can hear the things that are being recorded.

I may have some time to test this configuration today and will post detailed 
instructions if it works.

Hi Don,
I had a quick look an the web, and it looks like other people have found that 
"what you hear" isn't available by default using soundmax sound chips. It looks 
like there might be a workaround, but it involves editing the inf file of the 
driver, so may not be suitable:

I believe that an alternative is to buy a cable to connect the line output into 
the line input. However, you'd need to hear your screen reader, so you'd have 
to put a splitter on the output and have one output to go to headphones and one 
to the line input. Not sure how well this would work.

best wishes,
David.

I am using windows xp at the moment, and the system has a soundmax integrated 
hd audio chipset.

I haven't used virtual audio cable and I don't know what settings should be 
used with it.

but you probably don't have to use virtual cable unless you want to.  What 
version of Windows are you using and what sound card are you using.  You can 
very likely use a What You Hear feature, regardless of what it is called by 
your sound card manufacturer, to record every sound played by your sound card. 
these settings have nothing to do with Audacity and even if Audacity has 
settings that might apply, it is better to work directly with the settings that 
affect such behavior such as your Windows volume control settings or the audio 
settings directly available in your sound card settings.  Unless you want 
really good sound quality, you can purchase an inexpensive microphone that will 
produce reasonably good sound, such as the lapel microphone sold at radio 
shack.  It is not a USB microphone, it plugs into the microphone jack of your 
sound card.  I don't know anything about why the microphone you are currently 
using might cause problems but a  microphone that plugs into the sound card 
will not cause any problems.  If you have your sound card set up properly, the 
recording will be made properly and no applications will be affected in any way.
