voicerec-l: Discussions about digital and analog voice recorders

In this list, we want to discuss voice recorders. As I am blind, I amespecially interested in this topic from a blind perspective: Howaccessible is a voice recorder? Does it issue beeps, when a key ispressed? Does the menu system have a virtual margin, or even better,does it always start at the same position, when the menu key ispressed? ... But I want this list to be a forum for all voice recorderusers and therefore, all other voice recorder topics are also welcome:What editing functions are available? How good does it work withspeech recognition software? Can one scan for text in a message andcan one hear bits of the message, when scanning? ... Talk about analogvoice recorders is also welcome.But this list isn't a general audio list, so stuff like How gooddoes the new CD from Madonna sound or Where can I buy the cheapestCD-Rs are off topic.Flames are not welcome of course. There are great other places on thenet to flame people.
