Hallo there I do not know if of any help but my little Toshieba 1012 is now
a few years old but it came with a sound flaw and would even mute! and I
could not raise it from dead, I contacted a Mr James watt of Toshieba he has
a special affinity for vips at least he did a few years ago,he sentme a
Patch,that fixed it. however after I had laptop cleaned off in order to get
rid of embedded Freeserve after moving to zen I lost the patch, and it
seemed not to matter until lately and if the laptop mutes that isNo sound
at at  all getting sound back is very hard if not impossible. If any person
knows of a good way to unmute a laptop please letme know. I try from laptop
keyboard to do that, but for daily use I cheat and plug in a full keyboard,many I think
do  this Dorothy

Subject: crackling speech

Hi all! Just looking for any suggestions and asking if anyone has run into
this problem.

I just got a Toshiba Satellite A505-S6995 with Windows 7, 6GB ofDDr3 ram,
dual core 2.13GHZ processor, NVIDIA g-force video, realtek high-definition
audio. I'm using Jaws V11. The sound from the laptop is really good for
music but the speech synthesizer is somewhat crackly. It is something like
the problem long ago with the SoundBlaster live and jaws maybe version 4 or
5 until a patch came out. This crackling is almost nonexistent in Kurzweil
1000 but is still there a bit. I turned off all the power saving feature for
the sound card but the problem stays the same.

I really like all the goodies that comes with this Toshiba model but I don't
want to be stuck with this kind of problem. should I exchange it for
something else or should I wait for an update or what? Any thoughts?
