RE: putting a synthesizer in to the jfw imi folder or whatever it is

You have to be using JAWS 5.0 for SAPI 5 and SAPI 4 detect to appear.  If
you're not, you can get the driver from someone who uses JAWS 5 and paste it
into the JAWS folder of whatever version of JAWS you're using and it will
work.

Hi,

There is no sap4 or sap5 detect item on my change synthesizer menu. I
get Eloquence, Microsoft Text to Speech sapi5 and No Speech. Am I
missing something?

Ron.

Hello,

See if your synthesizer is a SAPI 4 or 5 synthesizer.  Press insert+j
for
the JAWS Window, go into language and change synthesizer and choose SAPI
4
detect.  If your synthesizer isn't detected, go back to the Change
Synthesizer and choose SAPI 5.  If it is a SAPI 5 synthesizer, you'll
see
the voices for your synthesizer under the "person" combo box under the
voices/global dialog.  Now if it isn't sapi 4 or 5, it's a lot more
tricky.
Please excuse me if the below procedure seems complicated.

Firstly you would need to have a JAWS-specific driver for your
synthesizer.
I'm guessing you don't.  The file will have a .jls extension.  If
however
you do have a .jls extension, do the following:

Place the .jls file in the JAWS folder.  In this example, let's say the
file
is called synth.jls and the JAWS folder is c:\jaws50.
Now, you would load Notepad and open the c:\jaws50\jfw.ini file.  The
first
section of the file should be the setup information.  Past there you'll
see
the word:
[Synthesizers]
Arrow down from there.  You'll see a few lines of information for each
synthesizer.  Supposing you are currently installed for two
synthesizers,
Eloquence and No Speech, go past the information for those synthesizers
and
press enter to create a blank line.  Type:
Synth3Name=synth
Synth1LongName=Type your synthesizer's name here
Synth1Driver=synth
Replace the word synth in the first and last line of this text with the
driver name for your synthesizer.  Then alt+f4 out of the file, save
changes
and reload JAWS.
If there isn't a .jls file for your synthesizer, contact the company
that
made it.  Please let me know if you need further information.
