Let me ask my question a better way then. Where are you being recorded. If on 
the radio? At the radio station? I ask these questions as I'm trying to figure 
out exactly what sort of mics will be used & the best way to reduce noise.

  Hi Sean


  Thanks for all the great suggestions! I am being recorded. I'll give all your 
suggestions some thought. It's so nice to be able to tap into this kind of

  I have in my 22 year radio career used JAWS while reading liners, spots, etc 
on the air. Now, back in my early years... We'd have someone read them to me & 
I'd braille them out on a notecard. Or, I'd memorize them. Or use the notecard 
until I had them memorized. Now, I do either memorize them which ain't as easy 
now that I'm 40 as it was when I was 20. Or, I still either use JAWS or a 
Braille display, or I semply record them & attach them to the end of my news or 
traffic report if it is one that I've recorded. Still use JAWS or the Braille 
display for live liners or live ads. These are usually short things which I've 
read. I have at one time or another done the reading of an article while guest 
hosting a talk show using JAWS. Yes, this is a much more difficult task to say 
the least. Depending on where you are reading at. I wouldn't be overly 
concerned about the clicks of the Braille sense. However not being at all 
farmilluar with this device. I can't really speak much further on its clicks. I 
will ask this question. Are you reading it live? Or, are you reading it while 
being recorded, recording yourself? &, if being recorded, where is this taking 
place? I ask these questions so that I may get a better idea as to how to help 
you come up with ideas which may work for you. So feel free to contact me if 
you have further questions.

    Hello List


    Does anyone have experience reading Braille while being recorded? I have to 
read something on the radio and there's all sorts of concern about the 
BrailleNote and the clicks. Now while I can honor that, I'm feeling frustrated! 
Everyone wants me to use JAWS and listen and read. I simply have never trained 
myself to do so because I'm a Braille reader. If you want a monotone recording, 
sure, I'll do that then. It feels like my Braille is always heavy weather for 
people. My idea is to put the BrailleNote on my lap and to have a blanket over 
my hands like a think one to absorb the sound. I'm planning for my hands to be 
under the table. Honestly, this doesn't have to be such a big deal but I need 
to honor the concern presented. I  know I'm coming across as frustrated but 
with all the fancy technology everyone has nowadays, it feels like I'm 
tolerated with my Braille which is so not a topic for this list. Yes, back to
