Despite the so called death of the BBC iPlayer the Webbie Accessible suite of
programs, especially the BBC iPlayer Radio app is working as well as it ever
has for me on Windows 10.
I downloaded 26 programs yesterday from Radio 4 and Radio 4 Extra with
consummate ease for offline listening on my Daisy player. Just cursor down to
the desired station, press enter to bring up the available programs list, tab
to that program list and press enter to start any program playing. If you want
to save it just press control S and type in a filename of your choice.
It could not be easier really.
If you want live BBC radio the Live BBC Radio app in the same suite of programs
is also still working fine.
If you want Podcast then there is also a Podcast downloader though personally I
still use QCast. Also Podcasts may be easier just to get from the BBC
I think both Webbie and Speak On are classics of programming for the VI
community and not always fully appreciated. We would be the much poorer for
On an iPhone the BBC sounds app seems relatively straightforward though they do
seem to want to tell you what you should be interested in listening to rather
than making it easier to browse like in the Webbie Suite.

Firstly, happy Christmas to you all and many thanks for all the help and
assistance over the last year.
I want to load BBC sounds on to my I-Phone and windows 10 computer.
Is there an idiot proof guide for this?
Again many thanks
