iRinger question

Other Apple Chat

I want to transfer one of my own ring tones to my iPhone 8+. On my Windows 10 PC I have iTunes 12.9.3 installed and my screen reader is NVDA 2018/4/1. Does iRinger still works when you want to transfer ring tones to your phone? I have an older version of iRinger 4.0. 0,but when I want to export my tone to iTunes I received the message that the tone can not be exported. I can try to drag and drop the tone into iTunes manually. Does anyone here know what the commands is for drag and drop using NVDA?

I don't know anything about iRinger, but here is the way I usually transfer tring tones to my iPhone.

First I create a ring tone or grab some audio that I want for a ring tone.

Next I use the free Audacity audio editing program to export the audio as an M4A file. I keep the audio to 30 seconds or less but I'm not sure what the limit on time is.

Then I change the file name extension from M4A to M4R.

Finally, I transfer the M4R file to my ring tones using iTunes.

A bit of a messy process, but it works. Don't know why Apple makes it so hard to transfer ring tones. This shouldn't be such a hassle.

I've also been told that one can use Garage band on the iPhone to make audio into ring tones, but I don't know anyone who has been successful doing that using VoiceOver.

Hope that helps.

I also use NVDA, Windows 10, and I don’t know which version of Iringer I have, but I just did this the other day with no problem. What is the error you are getting? Is the file the correct size and format? Because, you can just copy and paste it into the right folder in your iTunes folder… then open up iTunes and sync.
