RE: realSpeak

You probably won't need to worry about it for awhile; from what I know,
that's a good one.  The products have improved a lot over the years.  I
guess it would get down to things like s/n ratio and d/a conversion
quality.  Just a few years ago, it was considered exotic to have
multiple streams going at once--like being able to hear JFW, if
necessary, while playing a CD.

Thanks, but would you mind answering a very simple question from someone

inexperienced with these things?  What makes a sound card "better," in
the 
way you mean it?  I have a Dell computer of recent vintage, a single
sound 
card (I'm not a big techhie, so I have to launch Belarc Advisor to see
what 
it is), it's a SoundBlaster Live 24-bit.

Now, I have Jaws with the standard Eloquence software synth, and that
works 
and sounds fine.  Sometimes I stream audio or play an .mp3 file or a
music 
CD, and that sounds fine, too.  Given this, what use would I make of a 
second sound card?  Something specialized that I don't know enough to be

able to imagine, until you tell me?

Thanks.

I have two sound cards because I used an onboard card, and then I added
a
better sound card later. I use the most recent one, but since I
reformatted
my computer a few weeks ago, I think certain programs try to use the
first
card. I need to disable the onboard card in the bios, and hopefully that
will fix the problem.

Does a person actually need two sound cards in order to make use of
these
extra voices alongside the Eloquence voices?  Or do you use two sound
cards
for some other reason, basically?  I have never heard that I won't be
able
to take full advantage of the Jaws 8 upgrade unless I learn about dual
sound
cards and install something new in the way of hardware.  thanks.

Your suggestion worked. Now I just need to figure out a way to get it to
recognize my second sound card. I edited the .ini file in JAWS to get
eloquence to work, but that doesn't seem to work for RealSpeak.

Hello Vicki.

Do you have jaws for Windows starting automatically?  If you have jaws
for
Windows starting automatically it is very possible that the RealSpeak
voices
are coming through the soundcard that was installed last.  To see if
this is
your problem unload Jaws for Windows and restart it.

I hope this helps.

Chris.

I can't get the realSpeak voices to read in the "say all" mode. The text
is
being read, that is, the curser is moving, but everything is silent. I
somehow got it working yesterday, but I'm not sure what I did. Today,
again,
it's not working. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be? I
installed Jill, Lee, Karen and Emily, and none of them are reading.

Vicki
