Sound Forge pro 13 Jaws Scripts, version 5

Audio Studio 13 is based on Sound Forge Pro 13, and is more like the pro version, unlike audio studio 12.
These scripts are licensed exactly the same as the pro version.
Audio Studio 13 Jaws Scripts, version 5
In windows 7, Sound Forge 13 should work well in it's default configuration.
However, with declining jaws performance in windows 10, the folloinw adjustments are recommended.
- Options menu, Time Display submenu, Passive updates, must be checked.
- Options menu, video submenu, Passive Updates, must also be checked
- Options menu, Data Window, uncheck all items except status. You can only uncheck one item at a time, and thus have to open that dialog once for each item.
- Once the data window options are set, be sure to set that configuration as the default, so it will apply to new sound windows. You can do that in the dialog itself.
We originally had some problems with the channel meters not being visible as text. Magix has added a new channel meter, which is called Channel Meter V2. But, the old channel meter is the text version, and is intended to be the default.
If you can not see the level meters, as read by the f11 and f12 keys, go to the options menu, channel meters, and make sure the v2 version is not checked, but the other one is checked. Then, go to the view menu, and make sure channel meters are enabled.
The followin items in file forge130.ini
- Windows10=0 - set this to 1 if you wish to use jaws 16 or earlier in windows 10.
- RecordStatus - The beeper that indicates recording is in progress seems to cause performance problems in windows 10. AS of version 4, this is set to 0 by default. Set it to 1 if you want to hear the little beep when recording starts.
Installing Sound Forge can be a little tricky, as the Magix installers are implemented using a framework that is less screen reader friendly. In particular, the JAWS cursor can often not see any sensible text. But, do remember, that the JAWS touch cursor is your friend, and will let you look at more objects than you would see simply using the tab key.
To activate the touch cursor, press shift+the PCCursor key. Then you can use left and right arrow to explore the objects. To return to normal mode, double tap the PC cursor key.
The primary thing you need to do, once getting Sound Forge 13 installed, is setup the sound system.
To do that, go to the options menu, and up arrow to Preferences, and press enter.
This is a multiTab dialog, so go to the audio tab.
Pick a sound system, which may take a little trial and error on your part to see which works best for you.
If your playback works, but is sluggish, then choosing a different sound system may help.
The choices offered there will depend on the sound card you want to use.
Once that is selected, there are two subTabs, one for input and one for output. use the arro keys to select the one you want to work on first, and then press tab to go to the list of channels.
In this list, up and down arrow will move through the channels. A stereo file, for example, would have two channels, so channels 1 and 2 are the left and right respectively.
Each line contains the channel number, and the sound card output that will go to. Take the jaws cursor to that line, and left click on the sound card name for that channel. That will bring up a context menu that lets you alter that selection. Use the up and down arrow to choose the desired output, and Press enter when finished.
You can also taylor the way Sound Forge records, via the Record Options dialog, which you can activate via the view menu.
This seems to look identical to previous versions.
It is necessary to use the jaws cursor in this dialog, to explore, and to click on things you want to change.
Once you left click on the field you want to change, and be sure to click on the value part of the field, rather than just the name of the field, activate the pc cursor, and use up and down arrow to set the value, and enter to finalize your change.
Nost things will work fine at their defaults.
Once all files are installed, focus in sound forge 12, and press insert+q. Jaws should say: "Scripts version 12.0.0, for Sound Forge 12".
If it says that Default Settings are loaded, then the files have not been copied, and the installation was not complete. IF that happens, contact the Snowman.
Once installed and reporting the correct version, you can Use insert+h to learn about the various hot keys.

These articles were written for SF11, but are presently believe to apply equally to SF12 and 13, and discuss various aspects of operating Sound Forge.
