RE: JAWS and multiple sound cards

Hi, this is true but doing this for every peace of software when you can
do it for jaws is much easyer.

This can also be accomplished without editing any files.
Most software audio players, and recorders,
allow you to choose which audio device they will use for sound files.
So, you just select one soundcard for your default playback, and that is
the one Jaws will use. Select the other soundcard for your audio files,
such as songs, in your individual audio programs. Note, if you have
sound files assigned to certain Windows events, these will most likely
be heard on the same soundcard as Jaws. If you want to hear Jaws on
speakers by itself, then you are probably looking at an hardware speech
synthesizer. Ricque

Hi, Joy;

are you talking about using 2 different sound cards?
if so;

2 sound cards.

JAWS for Windows

Category: Synthesizers

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.

Now you must 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.

Hi all,
Could someone point me to the procedures for using multiple sound cards
on a computer. One card for JAWS and the other for everything else.
Thanks, Cy, the Ancient Okie...
