Yes, Happy Memorial Day and good barbecues to all!  <lol>

Now to get serious about Sirius:  <smile>  Very interesting.  I wonder
whether the Sirius on line service streams all the stations or only the
music.  We can listen to Sirius music on Dish Network but cannot access the
talk and sports channels.  This might be worth it if we could access them on
the computer and Replay.

I'd love to know the answer to this query if you or anyone else knows.

Thanks in advance.

How's the BBQ and Happy Memorial Day to you all!

Sirius Satellite Radio Info
If you listen to Sirius online on the internet I learned the following

They have accessible Captcha verification which speaks the
characters/numbers out to you. First attmep with this failed. The listen and
hear the numbers link didn't work in order for me to hear the captcha

Turns out this uses an active x add-on and for me I had no indication with
JAWS 11 that this active x even was on the screen.

I found the active x at the top of the page and ran it. You choose run.

This is the first time I had seen an active x used for captcha's in order to
hear the audio.

Sirius online costs $2.99 per month.
Only for USA and Canada residence.

If I am not mistaken here you will have to install another active x for
Windows Media Player extensions.

The Sirius online service works pretty well for me. Used it only once to see
if I could play a station so far. You can turn up or down the volume, uses
similar controls as those found in WMP 11. ctrl+s for stop, the volume
controls can be found with find command with JAWS ctrl+f then looking for
'vol' for volume.

Replay AV 8.80
The URL Finder tool after you run it and play a stream from your browser
loses focus so use insert+F10 and then arrow down to URL Finder in the list
and choose switch to to bring it back in focus. Not sure if you all have
this happening to you.
