Well, I was thinking about the way Ipodder had messed up my Window-Eyes and
JAWS. Someone had asked me on this list whether my firewall was allowing
Ipodder in. I was dubious because I couldn't see the relationship between
the firewall and the behavior of the screen readers. My firewall is the
firewall from inside Trend-micro Internet Suite 2005.
I had un-installed the Ipodder software and everything had gone back to
Yesterday I decided to try again, this time with the firewall off. This
meant that I had to unplug a cable to get out of Dave's network.
This time Ipodder installed just fine.
I just tried to listen to a podcast I thought was downloaded: namely, the
welcome message. Nothing happened. I read the docs but guess i didn't
understand it all. Well, that's typical of me and manuals.
So here come the questions:
If I hear what appears to be a percentage of downloaded data, then the file
doesn't play, am I doing something wrong? Do I have to open the url
directly from Explorer or does ipodder launch it?
How many podcasts are there in the Mosen Explosion list? I see what appear
to be two.
These answers should get me started. Either that or I haven't downloaded
anything at all. If that's the case, what's my next step?
Thanks in advance.
