Re: Using Station playlist with the latest version of NVDA

I'll mostly let others discuss the best way to achieve that.  Since I haven't done that sort of thing, my instructional material has just been me talking and the screen-reader speaking, what I might suggest might not be the easiest or most efficient way to do what you want.

Hi, what I want to do is have music attimes which ducks at times so I can talk over it and then the music fades out eventually, it would not get any more complex than that.  Warm regards, Claire Potter, Check out my brand new website: http://www.pottersplace.me.uk/

for now, I want to find out as precisely as I can what you want to do, so I'll ask this question.
Do you want to have music simultaneously with your speech or just speech with jingles at times in the program?

Hi Gene, you have totally confused me now, I just want to be able to remove bits of audio which do not need to be there, and add in the jingles and music at the appropriate times.

What is the next level?  Are you editing an mp3 file and then saving it again as an MP3 file?  Every time you edit a file and then reencode it while saving, you lose audio quality.  Either do all your editing in a lossless format such as wave, then save the final file as MP3, or edit an existing mp3 file using a program like MP3 Direct Cut, which edits existing MP3 files and saves the edited file without reencoding it.  If you edit and save an MP3 file reencoding it every time, after three or four saves, you will start to hear significant audio degredation. 
 
There may be other things you should know as the discussion continues about how to decide if you want to edit in a lossless format and save the entire file as an MP3 as the last save or use a program like MP3 Direct Cut. 
 
For now, basics such as just what you want to do would be the place to begin.
 
If you edit an MP3 file using a program like MP3 Direct Cut, you may introduce artifacts, depending on how the recording program recorded it.  You can use a recording program that eliminates this problem.  I'm saying that here so you know you have that option.

Hi Joseph, I have used NVDA for about 6 months now, I would not by any means call myself an expert yet but I am quite confident in using it, so it is just Studio and editing programs that I am new to. My friend did say that I can’t  edit in Studio itself, so that is maybe where something like Audacity or even Total recorder would come in. I do have Total recorder and I really like using that for simple editing tasks, so for example if I have a file that is 30 minutes long but I wanted to select a section to remove it is really simple to do that, that is about as far as I currently go with editing, but I would like to take it to the next level!  Warm regards, Claire Potter, Check out my brand new website: http://www.pottersplace.me.uk/

If both, then I suggest learning NVDA first so you can get an idea as to how to use the screen reader before using Studio. Once you become comfortable with NVDA, then I suggest learning how to use Studio so you can use its features efficiently.

Studio is mostly meant for producing pre-recorded or live shows on air, not necessarily used for podcast production (for that, there are programs such as Audacity, GoldWave, and many others).
