- Saving to audio using ClaroRead V4 and a Mac voice on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) quits early and a 4KB file is left which contains no audio.
If the TeamViewer connection freezes a lot, try the following:
- Open TeamViewer
- Click on Extras
- Click on Options
- Click on Advanced Tab
- Click on “Show Advanced options” button
- Uncheck the “Enable UDP” option
- All or some of the voices which begin with “Claro” don’t work
- All or some of the voices which begin with “Claro” don’t show up in ClaroRead’s Speech settings tab.
This usually means some of the voice files have been deleted somewhere, run the Claro voice remover program to remove the trouble voices and then reinstall ClaroRead (and voices) from disk.
Readiris will work with any scanner which comes with a Mac TWAIN driver and that works with the Mac’s “Image Capture” program.
This is caused by disk permissions not being correctly set. Run Disk Utility and repair your hard drive.
If you want to back up your Claro product settings, navigate to Macintosh HD > Users > [username] > Library > Preferences and copy the relevant “com.claro…” settings files.
