Tony,

Whilst my own favourite is Windows Media Player, a favourite player of many 
is Winamp.  The flexibility to exact movemement is pmore precise with it 
than with any of the other 'big two' certainly, probably than any other 
player as well.  Using JAWS in winamp, if you want to Jump To Time, you hit 
ctrl-j, type in the time, e.g., 6:56 for 6 minutes 56 seconds, then enter to 
go there.  Done.  You've seamlessly gone to your desired tpoint of time in 
the file.  (Actually, there is a Seek position slider in RealPlayer as well, 
which should to the same.  It, however, is included or not included in 
versions of RealPlayer when it is updated.  Try ctrl-i, while listening to 
something in RealPlayer, see what JAWS says if anything.

Hi Stuart & Tim,

I got around to downloading the magazine and listened to it in Real Player.

I used the keystrokes as given me by pressing insert & b but although Jaws
spoke the commands the keystrokes did not activate!

I wanted to listen back to a piece but had to listen again for a while
before I came to it!

What Player would you recommend to listen to Infovics, preferably a Player
where you can go forward & back on the file as well as stop, play & pause!!

Tony.

Hi Tim, and thanks for feedback.

Yes, Josh was indeed a little too far from the microphone.

Due to time constraints, and in particular because we needed the Infovics
magazine to be available before the AGM, I did not have time to split the
tracks.

Of course people can just download the mp3 version and skip through the
features that way, which is probably preferable anyway.

Stuart.

Hi Stuart,

Had a quick listen to the interview with Josh, and while I didn't think the
background noise was a problem, I felt that Josh was too far from the
microphone,  and thus you had to strain to hear what he was saying.

Another problem with the  magazine is that it doesn't seem to be split into
tracks.  While in Windows Media Player  I cannot skip to the  beginning of
the next feature.  As a result, I would be forced to listen to the whole
magazine, even though I mightn't want to hear some parts.

Tim

Hi Maureen,

Firstly, many thanks for your feedback, which is most welcome.

Infovics is an informal magazine, the interviews we produce are designed to
be done in a relaxed setting, with the background sound adding to the
ambience.

Saying that, I would of course be interested to hear if the noise on the
current edition effected anyone else's enjoyment of the content of the
interviews.

As a rule I try, wherever possible, to avoid interviewing people in the
studio, my feeling is that it is too clinical and the sound produced is very
dead.

For example, if Tony, Brian, Tim and Myself had sat in the studio and
recorded our chat reflecting on the last three years of Vics, I don't think
it would have held people's attention for as long.

I hope this might explain my thinking but as I say, I am open to other
people's view points and in particular, those with hearing impairment.

Many thanks again Maureen.

Stuart.

Stuart, Infovics magazine could indeed have been a cracker if only you
interviewed people in a quiet room or in the studio.  I doubt very much if
people with any bit of a hearing impairment could get the gist of some of
the interviews, because I found it difficult enough.  Surely you could
interview people elsewhere? Why not bring them to the studio?  There must be

enough money in the Vics kitty to pay a taxi there and back for a proper
talk. You could go to pub or café afterwards. I abhor these informal
interviews because the background noise can be so obtrusive to the content.
Food for thought! Maureen.

Hi all.

After what probably seems like an eternity, Infovics is back, and what a
cracking magazine we've got!

On this edition, which is now available on the Vics website,
We check in with mark Magennis and Josh O'Connor from the Centre for
Inclusive Technology (CFIT), to see what they've been up to. Brian Dalton
introduces us to the power of Skype. Tony Murray, Brian Dalton and Tim
Culhane reflect over the last three years of their time with Vics and
highlight some of the best moments for each of them. We've also got
information on the up-coming Vics AGM and a great song from Divine Comedy.

So, get a drink, open the windows and let some of that lovely sun filter in
and point your browser at http://www.vicsireland.org/infovics/

Regards and enjoy!

Stuart Lawler.
