Re: Loossing Eloquence

Thanks! I do have a Dell. I use my external DecTalk most of the time. Funny thing though; I also use Kurzweil 1000 which I believe uses Eloquence and don't have the problem there. Tom

Hi,

I have the same version of JAWS and the same soundcard. I also have the same basic issue you're having. My sound will crackle and the sound will be gone. I've seen others on the Web (mostly Dell users) with similar audio problems
with that soundcard.

I've got no real answer for you. Updating the driver didn't help and I
played with as many settings as I could find. I worked around the problem by
running JAWS through a USB headset, while running all other sound through
non-USB speakers or headphones. It actually works out well for me. If I
don't want to use the speakers for music, etc., I put my USB headphones over
a pair of non-USB ear buds. My wife calls it one of my hillbilly fixes.

I believe that, in my case, JAWS works best with a dedicated soundcard, and
I will probably replace the USB solution at some point.

Hopefully, someone else on this list has a better answer.

Good luck!

Gary

I am having a problem involving Jaws Eloquence software synthesizer
and my sound card. I am using Jaws version 10.0.1151  , and a Sound
Blaster
X-FI sound card. When using the down arrow key in a list, such as the In
box
in Windows Mail,  if I attempt to go below the last entry in the list
there
is a crackle  and I loose all sound from the sound card and have to shut
down and reboot to get it back. This does not happen if I am using my
external DecTalk Express. Anyone have any thoughts on why this occurs?
Tom
