Key a search term into the edit box and a list will appear. You don’t need to 
press the ENTER key to carry out the search. Back Tab twice to get to the list.

Me too.  Not worked out how to find particular stations yet, but it works very 
well.

Thanks.

        Dan's Tech Tips:

Radio? Sure! Over Ten Thousand Stations

Document Source: Fred’s Head from

www.aph.org

It's no secret that I love internet radio and streaming music over the web. I 
am still amazed that you can click a button and hear radio stations from the 
other side of the world.

I've found another Windows only application that is screen reader-friendly and 
will tune into more than twelve thousand stations! If you can't find something 
to listen to, you're probably not looking hard enough. The following directions 
from the AccessContent Blog will have you listening in minutes!

http://blog.accesscontent.ca/archive/2010/10/20/online-radio-revisited.aspx

Launching Radio Sure:

If you've been successful with the install, the program should launch 
automatically afterwards. An online radio station should start playing. First 
thing to do is stop the music and configure a few things. TAB through the 
screen until you hear play Button. Press the SPACEBAR and the stream will stop.

TAB to options and press the SPACEBAR to activate the option pages.

General Tab:

Remember, you can move between the tab pages by pressing CONTROL+TAB.

A few things you might consider modifying in the general tab.

· Whether you want the program to start with windows. Don't see the advantage 
of this, as I'd rather control when it's playing.

· Whether you want a stream to start playing when you launch the program.

· And my favourite, Global hotkeys. I would urge you to enable this, as it then 
gives you the option of controlling RadioSure from anywhere. See "Global Hotkey 
List" at the bottom of this entry.

· Minimize the program to the system tray is handy, as it takes it out of the 
way. You can summon it back to the foreground with one of the global hotkeys 
listed below.

We will skip the Skins tab, as it makes no difference to screen readers.

Recording Tab:

Yes, you can record the streams with this program. One thing you might consider 
changing on this tab:

· The recording folder. The default is to put it within a folder called music 
under the RadioSure program. You can point this folder to any folder of your 
choice with the unlabelled "browse" button. You can look around the other 
options on this tab at your leisure.

The Advanced Tab:

· You can choose your preferred audio device. Leave this one alone, unless you 
are having audio issues, or prefer to use a specific device.

· I'd suggest checking the Always show station in the window title, so you can 
easily hear the station name by pressing INSERT+T withmost screen readers.

· I'd uncheck Show pictures related to songs, but that's just personal 
preference.

Press SPACEBAR on the "OK" button and the setup is complete.

Yay! Let's start listening and finding radio stations.

The Main Window:

The first area on the program window is the list of all stations; over 12000 
from across the globe. No non-terrestrial station as of yet, but who knows.

Navigate this list with the UP and DOWN ARROWS. PRESS ENTER to start playing.

Volume Control:

TABBING brings you to the volume control. It's independent from the system 
volume, which means it will not interfere with the screen reader levels. Use 
Page up/Page DOWN for 20 percent increments. Use LEFT and RIGHT ARROWS for 5 
percent increments. And finally, use UP and DOWN ARROWS for 3 percent 
increments.

Searches:

Another press of the TAB will bring you to the search area. Simply type a 
station name, a genre or even radio call letters and the station list will be 
populated with the results. No need to even press ENTER when done. Press 
SHIFT+TAB twice to get back to the modified listing. To get back to the full 
list of stations, erase the search term.

Those are the main features of Radio Sure and should give you a good base to 
get started. All in all, a nifty little program if you like listening to online 
radio, but are too lazy to go surfing the web to find them all.

As promised, here are the global hotkeys. They make using the program even 
sweeter.

· (Shift + Alt + H) toggle hide/show Radio Sure

· (Shift + Alt + Number pad Plus) volume down

· (Shift + Alt + Number pad Minus) volume up

· (Shift + Alt + M) Mute

· (Shift + Alt + P) toggle Play/Stop

· (Shift + Alt + S) Stop

· (Shift + Alt + B) Back

· (Shift + Alt + N) Next

· (Shift + Alt + R) start/stop Recording.
