Highlight the listen link. With JAWS  do a insert+F7 on the
listen link you have highlighted - focus on.

Do a tab key.

Press space bar.

Press applications key.

Context menu appears.

Choose "copy shortcut".

This copies your listen link to teh clipboard.

The above method does not work all the time. It could be
javascript type link URL.

It could be embedded type link. BBC does this.

If the above doesn't reveal the actual listen link address. You
can use RAV 8's URL finder tool.

Listen to my podcast I did on the URL finder and read teh User
Guide for RAV 8. Go to Help Menu within RAV 8 for the user

Say the copied shortcut worked for you.

Open RAV 8.

Do a ALT+S for the shows menu.

Choose ADD Show Manually optin within Shows Menu.

The Edit Properties dialob box appears.

You will be in the basics tab.
You will be asked to name the show or station.

Tab 1 time. Enter all teh correct choices you need.

You will land in teh URL address area: 

Do a ctrl+v to paste in the copied listen link you got earlier.

Configure the Recordings, Schedule tabs also with your

Note you will need to know what kind of stream the listen link
is that you have copied. WMP - Real and so on. The site should
tell you this. When you paste in teh copied URL into the URL
field within the Basics tab within RAV 8 look at its ending
extension. It may show up as .asx. If you seee mms:// then it is
WMP format.

If you see rtsp: then its a Real player format.

I hope this helps you.
