Hi Jenny,

The scripting for Simple Burner was done for me by my wizz scripting
nephew.  I would have to ask whether I could share his scripts with
others.  If he allows that, I would be happy to do so.  The scripts
allow changing from lp2 to lp4, editing disks and tracks, getting time
info and most anything else that simple Burner allows.  My point was
that Simple Burner for Net MD's is scriptable.  Of course, such LP2 and
LP4 disks are playable on the MZB100.

You said, MD simple burner is very scriptable with Jaws. Have you
scripted it? I am not familiar with script writing, haven't taken that on. If
you have scripted it, would you be willing to share the scripts?

The MZB100 makes great recordings.  Its speaker is small which limits
playback fquality, of course, and there are four one-button easily
accessible E Q settings, the first of which is thin sounding.  The
second is flat and sounds great.  The third and fourth position add
base
boost.  I just keep my unit in the flat position, though it is easy to
move around in these settings.  These settings don't affect the fine
recording quality of the unit.

BTW, I also have a Net 1 Minidisc which allows quick transfer of
albums
to the unit from the computer.  Simple Burner, the program that
accomplishes this is very scriptable with Jaws.  In Simple Burner it
is
a snap to delete tracks made on a minidisk or the whole disk can be
erased.

Edward Alonzo's podcast was helpful, and I'll look forward very much
to
Don Ball's submission.

Hi Judy, Is your friend actually using it for interviews that goes on air? The reason i ask is that i once heard the sound this unit produces and i found it to be very thin and schreeky. I do hope i'm wrong, because it would indeed be a cool unit to have if the sound quality was good.

Don, is this unit still available? If so, from where. Someone did a podcast on this earlier and I thought someone said just the other day that it did not record in stereo. Perhaps what they said is that the microphone didn't record in stereo. Can this be done?

Be looking out for my upcoming review of the MZB100 mini disc
recorder
as an
accessible device. We all love pod casting devices but this recorder
has

many uses for the blind. It is the only adequate replacement for the APH recorder in my
opinion.
In this review I will look at this recorder in terms of accessibility
for
the high-tech as well as the low-tech person. I will compare the
MZB100
to a
cassette recorder and show how easy it is to use. When I am through I
hope
you will want this   recorder for it's many benefits including Nature
recording, note taking, and recordings of reminders and meetings. I
have
even recorded music sessions with it. The fact that you can buy the
storage media for a dollar a disc is also nice.
I will try to make this review fun with some of the many recordings I
have
made with it over the past several years.
