Is realtek a soundcard or a Video Card?  I've always had good results with
the creative labs equipment.  My laptop uses something called Sigma Tel
Audio.  It came with my Dell Laptop and I know absolutely nothing about it
beyond the name and that it seems to work quite well with Jaws.  At least, I
haven't had any issues with eloquence or the realspeak voices that come with
JFW 10 nor was there any trouble with the scansoft sapi5 version of these
voices.  8 gbs?  Wow, that's a lot.  You know, you might look into seeing if
Apple's natural voices would work well with jaws and adding it to your pc.
It's supposed to be much more human-sounding than the sapi 5 stuff out
there.  They reportedly read by paragraph instead of by sentence making for
a much more seamless experience akin to artificial-sounding voices like the
ones in Eloquence.  I've never heard it myself but it sounds exciting and
very ram-intensive.  The thing is even supposed to mimic pauses brought on
by breathing.  I don't know whether to be impressed or creeped out by that
one but, I imagine I'd want to get my hands on it if it turned out that Jaws
could be made to work with it in some operating system like Windows 7.

Hi, there,


Actually, I think it is a Jaws topic.  There are things to watch out for.
Certain video cards work better with jaws than others.  The sound card and
the mother board aren't as big a deal as the vid card.  Go to the freedom
scientific website and do a search for video card issues to get the latest
info.  The nvdia cards didn't used to work well with jaws but now,
thankfully since my pc's came with them, that problem is under control.  I'm
sure there are others still out there who aren't though and it's worth
looking into so you don't build a machine that isn't fully accessible to
you.  I'm going to also recommend 2 gigs of ram to you.  You may want to buy
things like natural-sounding voices for Jaws to use and the more the merrier
is the rule with ram when it comes to big files like that.  It'll also do
you good if you plan to install things like OpenBook and work it in
conjunction with Jaws, I.E. scanning stuff directly into word and with
openbook and then manipulating it with  your word processor using Jaws.  I
got the 2 gig recommendation from someone at Freedom during a technical
support call and it's been good advice, so, I'll pass it on to you.


Have fun building your pc and I hope this helps.
