Run RMC6
Just a test. Press alt+x to start the capture mode. You should hear this 
sound beep.
Open your browser and play a media like at YouTube.com
Play the media for 2 minutes.
alt+F4 out of your browser. Close browser.
Go back to your RMC6 program.
Press ctrl+l
Are you hearing this URL field box?
If yes, you are on the Home tab control user interface and at the correct 
place.
Press your tab keyboard key three times from where you are. You are moving 3 
tabs away from the URL field box.
You should hear your media file in this list view.
Another tip is to look for a item called show in folder / properties. If you 
do hear these just shift+tab a few times and you will land in the list view. 
The list view contains all your captures / recordings.
To stop the capture mode press alt+x but please examine the list view 
contents with insert+num pad 8. Look for the word 'complete' because if you 
do not see the text 'complete' RMC6 has not finished. Also, RMC6 makes sound 
beeps when it has finished capturing so you will know.
Another way to use RMC6 is to use the ctrl+l which will place you within 
this URL address bar area and you can paste in your URL address of the media 
you are trying to capture. AFter pasting it in the URL edit box please press 
your enter keyboard key. Then tab 3 times and look for the list view box 
which will contain your file.
Let me know if you need more help.

Petro, What should those settings be set at. I have Windows 8.1, 64 bit, and
have had no luck recording anything. Jerry Cox

RMC6 using NVDA and Windows XP or Vista did very well with RMC6 Settings
area and I never lost focus. For example, NVDA always read back to me
whether a switch was on or off within any of the settings found within its
five tab property sheets like in the Personalization, Output folder,
Internet Download, Audio Recordings, DVR and Naming tabs. But with JAWS
after a certain amount of time has passed it will lose focus with the main
tab controls (Home, Guides, Schedule, Settings, Get Support) and the
Settings interface will lose focus as the user has no idea if a control is
on or off (enabled / disabled). In the settings it would say it some places
'1' instead of switch is on / off. I really have not checked to see if the 1
means ON and possibly 0 means OFF. When I was learning about computers it
used to mean 0 meant off and 1 meant ON but not sure here. As a blind PC
user I have to find ways to find a fix so I used NVDA to set my settings as
it does a better job handling this then JAWS. If the blind user only uses
JAWS tell them to exit RMC6 and re-run RMC6 and go to the settings area and
set his settings before focused is lost. I told someone at Applian I would
give RMC6 a grade of C a few weeks ago but since that time I would give it a
grade of B- because of the available keyboard shortcuts and the ability to
import media files into the list view box which allows one to convert those
files. The RMC6 program does work and captures what I need to capture. I
have no way of knowing if there are more issues when using Windows 7 64 bit
OS.
On the main user interface if you want to know if the Audio Recorder
recording mode is at the stert recording or stop recording position simply
press shift+tab and tab to re-hear the mode or use alt+r to start reocrding
and press alt+r again to stop recording while using the Audio Recorder. If
you are using the Stream Downloader use alt+x and pay attention to the sound
affect beep and alt+x to stop the stream downloader mode to stop capturing.
If one is having an issue finding the list view box / area where the
captured files appear tell the user to press ctrl+l to go to the URL field
and then tab 3 times and press the up arrow and you will hear the list box
contents. This works for me. Or look for the show in folder or properties on
the main user interface and shift+tab and you will find the list box view.
Who are these other users who have issues with RMC6? Tell them to contact me
by email message. If you cannot find the list view contents you can go to
the hard drive folder where your captures are stored. There while in the
list you can press your F5 key to examine the file size progress download
size and listen to your computer for the sound beeps RMC6 will make when
each and every capture is finished for you. Again I do not know if there are
significant issues using RMC6 with Windows 7. As a blind PC user I have to
find alternative methods / skills to use a particular piece of software. I
did mention the focus issues to Applian but I understand it could be the
screen reader at some fault too. The RMC6 Guides tab control and its usage
needs work / improvements when it comes to using it. To import a file into
RMC6 use alt+i keystroke as drag n drop is difficult. Please pass this on to
any mailing list you are a member of to assist the blind RMC6 user.

Jeff, Replay media catcher 6 and screen readers.
Nvda has a lot of trouble reading controls in rmc 6 I know Petro said it
works for him but for people that use windows 7 64 bit either home
preium or pro or any other flavor of windows 7 nvda seems to not work
correctly with rmc, Jaws seems to loose focus most of the time. also
window eyes seems to loose focus at times.
Also when toggleing items you do not know if they are on or off.
The List views don't read at times nor does the guides is there any way
these issues can be adressed? I would be willing to test any changes you
may make to make the software more blind friendly.
