In order to use JSonar, you will need the following:

  • Cakewalk Sonar: in general, JSonar supports Studio and Producer editions of Cakewalk Sonar starting from versions of Sonar 5 and up. Users are reporting good success with Sonar LE as well. Note: we always recommend latest patches of the Cakewalk Sonar software. Check Cakewalk Support section for the latest updates.
  • JAWS screen reader, version 7.10 or above. This is due to the fact that any version of Jaws prior to 7.10 is unable to track the menu structure in Sonar. Beware that the latest version is always recommended unless specifically discouraged by the JSonar development team.
  • Computer equipped with all of the necessary gadgets for audio production. Please note that both NVidea and ATI graphic cards are known to work very well with JAWS and JSonar. We also recommend using one of the professional sound cards, such as M-audio Delta series for best performance and interoperability between the screen reader and Cakewalk Sonar. If possible, stay away from on-board audio and/or video cards if you plan to work on serious audio production.
  • The following display settings are recommended, though are generally not essential. They can be set on the Appearance and Settings tabs of the Display applet in Control Panel.
    • Screen resolution: 1024 by 768 pixels
    • Color quality: 32 bit
    • Color scheme: Windows Standard
