Leslie, here are thde preliminary results of trying to get Replay9 off the virtual ground.:

Keep in mind I am not a professional tester nor have I tested ANY program before.

After installing the program and 'entering' on the desktop shortcut on my XP PC that uses JAWS 14 speech screen reader, I kept pressing 'enter' to open Replay9. It turns out it opened in a different window; unfortunate and a time waster if you're not expecting that to happen.



When I tab through the tabs on the 'welcome' screen, I entered on the 'demos read tab, I received an error message and the 'demo links' went nowhere. Turning on the JAWS cursor displayed the "unexpected error" The msge continues "help URL not valid. Parameter name: url" followed by an 'ok' button.



Tabbing further the tab "show at start" appears. Show what at start?



Tabbing further I encountered a 'here' button. The JAWS cursor displayed "Version of is available." Version of what?



After tabbing to the 'guide' tab, tabbing further displays 5 buttons, none of which explain what each button is for.

In fact the 'library' 'schedule' and 'guide' buttons do not function when pressing 'enter' or the space bar.



Between the 'search' and 'here' tabs there are a half dozen tabs that don't speak whatsoever.



I haven't figured out how to use the program even after looking at the 'file menus. There are numerous options in the various menus that don't appear to have much to do with what the Replay AV programs have done traditionally.



In my humble opinion there is no point to continuing until the above issues have been resolved. This program appears to need a lot of work unfortunately if a blind person is to have access to it..

Leslie, I began working with your new #9 program but experienced a software problem unrelated to your program. I'll get back to my evaluation tomorrow evening as I have a Toastmasters meeting tonight after work. My apology for the delay. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Life My Way" <lifemyway@xxxxxxxxx>

Thanks everyone.  I have my four testers for now.
If I need anymore I will send out the work.

I really appreciate your replies.

Thanks
Leslie

Hi All -

Here's an out of the blue request for you.  (and long over due)

I  am looking for a few testers - perhaps 4 - to test a radio recorder
that one of our developers has come up with.
Could you get back to me and let me know if you'd be interested? We are specifically interested in how it does from an accessibility standpoint.
And it's overall functionality.

You can write me directly at leslie@xxxxxxxxxxx. And can you let me know
what sort of screen reader you are using?

I hope you are all enjoying day 2 of summer.
:)

Thanks so much
Leslie

Ok.  Not the best news, but things are clearer.  I'm stuck in a
time-shifting mode where much of what I want to hear I can't hear when it's on and I now need a solution. It also would be better if it were schedulable so I didn't have to be at the "radio" to turn it on. Thanks
to all.

Total Recorder can record multiple streams on older computers and
schedule
them, but on newer systems, Win Vista or newer, the ability to capture
audio
is as we know very limited.

You now get Replay A/V by going to the downloads page under support on
the
Applian site. It's still there for the support of those of us who have purchased it. It's been canceled because the company justly realized
that
it couldn't capture a lot of streams nowadays, and the repeatedly
assert
that they're coming out with a modern program. They thought it would
be
out
by now but it's still forthcoming. In the meantime, if you lose the
current
one, it can be replaced and is still supported. It is definitely the
best
stream recorder out there even with its limitations.

I'm not sure about Iheart radio, though I've come across it at some
point.
Is it an embedded player or one of those services like Pandora?
Unfortunately, it's no longer being supported and the last time I
looked
on
their site it didn't appear that older versions are being sold. They
were
talking about a program called Darwin which sounded similar, but I'm
not
sure how accessible it is or how it compares to Replay-AV, though it
sounded
as though it was for recording talk shows and storing them in something
like
the cloud player, if you know what I mean. There used to be a program
called
Redbutton and Total Recorder allows you to schedule single recordings,
but I
don't know if there are any other programs for capturing and scheduling multiple streams. Unless someone can comment further, your best bet is
probably to go directly to the Applian website or to write to them
directly.

I have no idea why they discontinued the program.

Susan
If you want to do scheduled recordings, Replay-AV IS THE BEST WAY I CAN
THINK OF.

Is i heart radio accessible? Btw, I found that I did not have Replay
AV
installed.  Do I need that?
Thanks.

Gary,
As to finding stations to record, the replay guide is probably pretty
out
of date, so your best bet is to use one of the databases like
Radio-Time
or the Bill Sparks site to find streams and capture the url to plug
into
the add show manually dialog. The scheduling dialog ids pretty
straightforward, though your screenreader may not indicate the days clearly depending on your settings without a bit of exploration. My
guess
is that if you've done it before you'll be able to pick it up easily,
but
let me know if you need more help.

Susan

I'm coming back to Replay after not using it for a long  time.  I
can't
remember how to schedule recordings and how to pick sites to be
recorded.
Where can I find information on this?
Thanks.
