I learned about this software at the expo last weekend. It is available at
http://www.industrialaudiosoftware.com as a 30 day free trial. The software
is supposed to provide an integrated way to create and publish podcasts.
Unfortunately, at the moment, it isn't very accessible, despite the presence
of a few keyboard shortcuts. Maybe someone with more hard core programming
skill than I could script it or something. I'm just not quite sure.
First, the program's user interface elements are clearly nonstandard. I
reclassified a number of buttons and sliders and set the highlight colors in
JAWS. Even after doing that, it remains impossible to tell the setting on
the sliders. No percentage is read by JAWS, etc. Graphical buttons have no
associated text labels.
Second, there is insufficient functionality in the menu bar to conduct the
same operations as those found in the inaccessible main program screen.
Third, the keyboard shortcuts are insufficient to provide an equivalent
level of accessibility. The record/stop shortcut is the same, thus
requiring one to remember or be able to tell by sight whether or not one is
Anyone else out here tried this software? Any ideas?
