I would try to find a used Edirol R1, maybe on Ebay.  I would get the Giant
Squid Audio Labs powered mics that sell for $80 or $90 depending on whether
you get them on sale or not, and I would also purchase a copy of GoldWave
for your audio editing software.  I like Sound Forge and Studio Recorder
better but those are not within your budget.  GoldWave is a good package and
I believe it sells for about $50 or so.  That would be a very nice setup in
my opinion.

Can you help me spend $400.00? <Big smile>  I have $400.00 left in my
research grant account, and I must spend it before the end of the year or I
will lose it.  So, here is my question to you:

If you have an Olympus WS320-M digital recorder that does a nice job of
recording on the fly, so to speak, but you want to invest more money into
software and hardware that will facilitate producing hi-quality recordings
and podcasts, and you have $400.00 to work with, how would you invest the
$400 to maximize the quality of your recordings and podcasts?  What other
pieces of software and/or hardware would you purchase?  I am totally blind,
and therefore, high functionality and accessibility are critically important
to me.  

Thanks for your suggestions...
