Hi Peter and all,

Station Playlist Studio version 4 now has a built-in software based mixer, so you can broadcast using only one sound card without concern about your screen reader interfering. I think it is pretty amazing.

Hello Deane,

   Perhaps I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill too. A friend of mine
who streamed several NFB events said he uses two sound cards so he can hear
his screen reader while streaming an event without the screen reader's
speech going out on the stream. He told me that he assigned the screen
reader to use one sound card, and used the other sound card to hear the
audio of the event he was streaming. Are you saying that you can have both
audio sources run through the same sound card and be able to hear it plus
your screen reader's speech and do other work on the computer without anyone
listening in hearing the screen reader chatter while you work on your
computer? I'm a newby to all of this so please bear with me as I learn the

Maybe I'm missing something here, but if you listen through
headphones on your system, nobody will hear the screen
reader.  that's what I do all the time.
