Rob and Petro,

As Petro alluded to, there are two primary drivers for Replay Music in the
Settings Input pulldown: Audio Driver and Windows Audio Driver.  If you have
a microphone or other input source, other items might also appear in the
listing.  The Windows Audio Driver will pull sounds out of the Windows
system, and, consequentially, it could get mixed with system sounds or other
audio on your computer.  


The Audio Driver can pull audio right out of your browser which will not get
mixed with other sounds.  Up until Windows 8 this worked fine.  However,
Windows 8 introduced Secure Boot into the BIOS which may disable the
functionality of the Audio Driver.  Depending on your system, you may need
to disable Secure Boot for the Audio Driver selection to work properly.

Bookmark your website or websites in your browser's favorites first.

Within Replay music 6,

When you click the start record / record button the dialog screen appears.
Within this dialog screen choose the 'open browser' button. This will open
your browser program with a RM6 webpage. Go to your favorites / bookmarks
you have in your browser for the media. Do not play the media though. Press
alt+tab to go back to the Replay music 6 dialog screen where you had
previously clicked on the open browser button and choose the OK button. You
have put RM6 in record mode now but it is not recording yet for you until
you play the media. Press alt+tab to go back to your opened browser and play
the media. See what happens. To stop recording go to Replay music 6 and
choose the stop recording button. Examine the list view within RM6.


Can you provide me the website URL you are trying to capture?

Greetings all,



Replay Music Version 6.10 01-23-2014

Windows 8.1

Firefox 29.0.1

Internet Explorer Version: 11.0.9600.17107

JAWS Version 15.0.8021 


Previously, when I was using Windows XP, I had found a technique that worked
every time so that RM would record the stream and not JAWS or other system
sounds.  However, that technique does not seem to be working here on Windows
8.1.  There has got to be a better way to have RM record what is desired
without having it try to guess what  to record.  If there was a button or
checkbox that simply stated record what is being requested by browser "fill
in the blank", then it wouldn't be so difficult to have it not record speech
produced by an accessibility service.  In addition, the "Open Browser"
button has not helped with this issue and it has its own draw backs.
Currently, I use Firefox as my default browser, but I do not have Flash
installed.  The site I want to record uses Flash which would be fine if I
could pick Internet Explorer.  This way, I am forced to either install Flash
on Firefox or switch my default to IE, which I did do temporarily just to
see if it made a difference.


So is anyone using a similar configuration to what I currently have
successfully?  If so, what steps or settings do you use?


Thanks for any assistance with this issue,


n  Rob
