Hi, I have used this application and I don't find it nearly as good as
Adobe at converting files.  however, when files are locked, it comes in
quite handy.

Hi Neal and Every one.
 
Will Kitto here from Sioux City Iowa.
 
Have any of you ever thought about converting the sound forge manual to
text: using the program called PDF To Text?
 
I 've used it to convert menny protected PDF files to text.
 
If any of you would like, to try it out for your selvs, I've provided
the link for the direct down load below.

Gini, the document is definitely locked.  I get an error message when I
try to save in anything but PDF.  But at least it is quite accessible.
It is not tagged correctly, but the links do make it nice to be able to
skip around.
 
thanks.  Neal

Well, if you're having no trouble with adobe, then go with it, the links
have to be nice.  Usually though, there is an option under the file menu
to save as text.  This is usually not limited unless the document is, as
i said, locked.  But then, you still see it, it just says unavailable.
as I said, if you're okay with it in its current form, then no worries,
but if not, you may want to check this out.

Jenny, I have the manual in PDF.  The one I received today is readable
in Adobe but Adobe cannot convert it to anything.  However, there are
links in the manual so you can easily go to chapters, etc.
 
thanks.
 
Neal

Not sure if you have gotten this manual taken care of, nor am i sure
that you have scanning software but...  Both Kurzweil and Openbook will
allow you to convert a PDF document as long as it is not locked, which
this manual is not.  I downloaded it and converted with no trouble.
When you open it, it will start the image recognizing process as if you
have just scanned a bunch of pages and now want to recognize them.

Ray, I found a manual on the Sony site, but it was a restricted PDF
manual that could not be opened with jaws.  If you have a manual, would
you mind sending it to me?  If not, could you tell me where I can down
load it.
 
One other question.  Does one have to set the recorder back to advanced
menus each time they remove or recharge the battery?
 
My email address is

thanks again for teaching me things.
 
Neal

Neal, the difference is that if you are in advanced menu mode, all the
capabilities of the unit are at your disposal; even when you can't see
the menus.  IN simple mode, not all the choices are there.  The
instruction manual makes the assumption that you are operating the unit
in advanced mode.  Also, in the instruction manual, (which you can
download from Sony as a .pdf file which is fully accessible) Sony uses
asterisks to indicate submenus.  for example, when you first press the
menu/search key, the edit menu is always the first menu most to the
left; and, it's always the default where you land.  To get in to this
edit menu, just press enter by pressing the special role type control.
In the manual, I seem to remember that the edit menu was presented
something like this:
edit*name*ETC.  The first star indicates that edit has a submenu and the
second star indicates that the name option also has a submenu.  HTH.

Ray, Thanks for the information.  I have owned lots of minidisk
recorders, but one always has something to learn.  For example, the ones
I have owned have not had the choice of advanced or simple menus.  What
is the difference here?
 
thanks for the help.
 
Neal

Neal, you and I almost have exactly the same model of recorder.  I use
the Sony MZ-RH910 which is operationally exactly the very same unit.
The only difference is that your unit comes with a six line luminescent
display where as mine comes with a five line display which is not
luminescent.  The unit is easy to operate.  One thing to remember is
this.  First, put the gum stick looking battery in the unit with the
plus side facing outward.  Then, close the little lid over the
compartment.  Now, to charge the unit, press and hold down the
stop/cancel key for two seconds.  That is the key right next to the
special role type control.  Next, after the unit is fully charged, (this
takes about two and a half hours or so) you need to set the menus so
they are in the "advanced mode".  The first thing you do is press the
menu/search button and hold it in for two seconds (I do it for three
just to make real sure) this will bring up the menus.  The first menu
you see is simple/advanced.  By default, the unit is set to Simple.  to
change to advanced, just move the special role type control one click
toward the buttons; then, press on the role type control for the enter
key.  That's it.  BTW, the menu/search key is right next to the two
position volume rocker switch which has a raised dot at the plus end.
 
HTH.

The Constantly Barefoot,
Ray

Hello all, I just ordered a Sony High MD recorder and the software.  I
am curious to see if the recorder is as good as the MZR900 I have with
respect to mike pre-amps.  I also want to know the scoop on the
accessibility of the software.  So, if we're lucky, you can expect a
podcast on this next week after I have gotten the recorder and have time
to play.  I will use my Audio Technica AT822 and the in ear mikes from
Sound Professionals and some other mike from Sound Professionals to give
us all a chance to hear how they do on a Minidisk platform.
