I wish there was more readily available documentation for using such
sound recorders and audio editors with NVDA, not those which only
record, but those which allow their modification and improvement.
I have given up on Goldwave for the time being, and am working on
trying to figure out Audacity with a Skype friend.

I would like to recommend a great sound recorder called virtual recorder. It
is very easy to download and install, and very accessible. When you launch
it, you can record your voice with a built in mike, record sounds straight
from the sound card, or both. So, it does very well with recording pod
casts, because it records your voice great, and it records a screen reader
directly from the sound card at the same time, so your voice and screen
reader come through loud and clear. There is a record button, stop, pause,
and you can record in many formats like MP3, for example. The problem with
Voice recorder in win10, is that you only have the choice of recording in a
M4A format that is unique to win10. Very few players can play the files that
you record with that program. Virtual recorder saves your recordings in a
folder that you choose as soon as you stop the recording. The recordings are
so clear I have done with it, and it does not take up much room on your
computer. There is even a portable version that can run from a USB flash
drive. Just type in Virtual Recorder in your search like Google, and you
will get a site to download it. You may be able to download it from:
If not, just do a search for it. I absolutely love it. Take care.

Also, will people please change subject lines when the thread changes to the
point where it has nothing to do with the original subject. The subject
line still says new member and the discussion is now about audio recorders.
I'm not saying that people should change subject lines if the topic still is
reasonably related to the original but this isn't even remotely related.

I am changing the subject line in this thread with this message.

If the sound recorder program in Windows 10 is like the one in Windows 7,
it's almost worthless. In the Windows 7 program, you can't edit and it
records in the MP3 format as I recall. I know you can't choose formats and
I know it’s a lossy format. Whether ogg or MP3, its so limited that it's
more like a toy.

I don't recall if it even has a pause button and if it resumes recording or
overwrites the file if you stop and start it. What program did you used to
use? If you used the old XP sound recorder, that may still work in Windows
10. I got it to work in Windows 7. I can suggest programs to use to create
a podcast file and edit it. For example, you might use a program I have to
record the podcast file and then edit with Mp3 Direct Cut. Both programs
will produce MP3 files but, for reasons I won't go into now, it's better to
use one program I can discuss for editing and MP3 Direct Cut for editing.

The sound recorder in Windows 10 is called voice recorder. Search for it by
using the search feature which you can access by pressing ctrl+escape. It is

Hello once more,

Thank you for your responses, for I enjoyed reading them a lot!

Further specs: My Web browser is the latest version of Firefox (even though
a sighted friend told me that Google Chrome was better), my default media
player is Windows Media Player 12 (not The Groove Music from Windows 10),
and Gmail is the only e-mail source I use. Since Windows 10 doesn't come
with the Sound Recorder program like how previous versions of Windows does,
I'm missing it a lot because I use it for Podcasting and other projects.
Can any Windows 10 user recommend any sound-recording program that would
work well with it + NVDA? I'd appreciate your feedback so much.

Just FYI: I have no usable vision in both eyes to read large print so I'm
totally dependent on NVDA to do all my reading out loud for me.

Take care, and have a good day.



Warm Regards
