This is great news.  Kelly told me about this product over the phone.  I was
wondering more about it, where can I get it?  How much will it be to buy?
For those who want to add me to skype, its jaredr80.  I'm glad I could
finally get it working again.  What formats does this program record in?

  Subject: CallBurner: Finally, Fully Accessible Skype Call Recording is
Here at Last!

  Hello Everyone,

  The people at Netralia, developers of the Skylook Skype call management
and recording application for Microsoft Outlook, have recently released a
new Skype call recording product that does not depend on Outlook. The new
CallBurner application enables annotation and recording of all Skype calls
while providing a clean, simple user interface.

  After learning of the existence of this new product, I downloaded a trial
copy of the software. While finding it reasonably usable for basic call
recording, I found the call detail window largely inaccessible with any
screen reader, including JAWS, System Access and Window-Eyes. I promptly
wrote a short note to the company's support e-mail address requesting
accessibility enhancements to permit full use of CallBurner with screen
reading software. On Thursday, July 5, I was absolutely flabbergasted to
receive a response from the company's senior developer offering a beta copy
of an accessible version of the software for my testing! This response came
in less than three weeks of my initial request!

  After downloading the test copy of CallBurner, I immediately began to put
it through its paces. After enabling "Screen Reader Compatibility" in the
Accessibility sub-menu of the program's System Tray icon, I was instantly
delighted to discover extensive keyboard navigation, a tabbed Call Details
dialogue box and full accessibility without need of screen reader
configuration or scripts.

  CallBurner is an excellent solution for blind podcasters and anyone who
needs accessible, reliable Skype call recording capability.
