[ddots-l] Re: Set jaws to speak through a different soundcard

I reckon if you've got a problem with JAWS coming thru the wrong soundcard, then the way to go is as Phil said in his original posting.
I guess some of us just don't have an issue with this?

I was wondering about what you said. I have a sound Blaster Live and a
Delta 10 10. I don't remember having to set up anything like that. Jaws has always spoken through my sound blaster. I can go into the control panel and
change it, but there is no need for that.What do you think? .

Hey Phil!

Is this really necessary?

I have a Delta Audiophile exclusively for JAWS, and I didn't have to make
any of these settings, and it worx fine!

Not criticising, I'm just interested?

Cheers

Mike

Here are those directions for making jaws use the soundcard you specify
for speech output. This is an excerpt from a JFW tech support bulletin.
Make sure you don't do step two--installing the elloq.jls driver--its
not necessary for versions of jaws above 5.0

Question:


I have two sound cards on my computer. How do I make sure JAWS uses the
one I want?

Answer:

Many JAWS users who also use music or audio production software want
JAWS and Eloquence to speak through one sound card, while using the
other for their
production work. To do this, you need to edit a file called JFW.ini and
install the updated Eloquence Speech driver in the accompanying zip
file.

Editing the jfw.ini file:

1. Using My Computer or Windows Explorer, browse your hard drive to the
currently running version of JAWS and find the jfw.ini file in that
folder.

2. Press ENTER to open.

3. You should find some lines that read:

Synth1Name=eloq

Synth1LongName=Eloquence for JAWS

Synth1Driver=eloq

The number doesn't matter, it may be 1, 2, or 3, but it must be the same
for all entries for Eloquence.

4. Add the following line after the driver line: Synth1Port=SB Live!
Wave Device Of course, you need to make sure that the synth number
matches the other
lines, so that if the Driver line read:

Sytn3Driver=eloq

Then the port line would read:

Synth3Port=SB Live! Wave Device

The text after the = sign in the Port line comes from Control
Panel/Sound & Multimedia/Audio tab It must be one of the entries that
can be chosen for Preferred
Playback device.

5. Save your changes and exit Notepad. With JAWS version 5.x and higher,
you are done.

If you have JAWS version 4.x, you will also need to install the updated
driver. As long as JAWS is running and speaking through Eloquence,
eloq.jls cannot
be simply overwritten when unzipping the file. You will need to switch
to NoSpeech or MS SAPI to get the eloq.jls to overwrite properly.

1. Download the file from

ftp://ftp.freedomscientific.com/users/hj/private/eloq.zip

2. Unzip the zip file into the root of the active JAWS directory where
you made the change to the jfw.ini file.

3. Restart JAWS and it should now be speaking from the sound card you
wanted.

4. If not, make sure the entries are correct in the jfw.ini file and
that your sound card is indeed installed correctly. Most audio and music
production
software allows you to select a sound device for it as well, so it can
use one sound card while JAWS uses another.
