Re: Adding Time-Stop Marks to Audio Tracks

Well I took this from a download I got from an earlier thread on this list. Its a stand alone bit of software and if you want to know more the contact details are at the end onf that read me file. I only used it once for a project I wanted it for and it worked but seemed a little clunky.
I guess it is a stand alone marker and hence not integrated into winamp.

Is this an nvda add on? Or or an add on for winamp? I'm old so am
drawing a blank. This sounds nice, and reminds me of the time mark
feature when I used to use winamp way back in 2010.

Winamp Time Markers 1.1

Winamp Time Markers allows you to create time markers/bookmarks for
the file currently playing in Winamp. You can create and restore
markers for multiple files. You can also create multiple markers for
the same file.

"Create Marker"
will allow you to instantly create a marker for the currently playing
file. The file can also be in pause mode. You can add a file which is
stopped as well, but in this case it will basically act as a favorite
and play from the beginning when it is selected. You will be prompted
to type a name for the new marker. You can either type a name or
leave it blank to use the title of the file currently loaded in
Winamp. After you have added one or more markers, they will appear on
the pop-up menu when you access it via the assignable global hotkey.
Selecting a marker from the menu will load the associated file into
Winamp and then start playback at the saved position. If the file is
already loaded or playing, it will simply start playback at or jump to
the saved position.

When the listview in the main window has focus, you can use the Delete
key to delete, F2 to rename, Control+Up-Arrow to move up,
Control+Down-Arrow to move down, and Enter to jump to the selected
marker. You can use Control+M to create a marker and Control+J to
jump to the selected marker even when the list does not have focus.
Control+T will hide or minimize the program to the system tray
depending on the settings. You can configure the folder where Winamp
is located in the
dialog if you did not use the default installation folder.

In addition to the global hotkeys which you can assign in the
dialog, there are some hotkeys which will work only when the Winamp
main window has focus.

\ Create a marker and use the current Winamp title as the marker name.
Shift+\ Create a marker and prompt for the marker name.
Control+\ Activate the Winamp Time Markers pop-up menu.

Additional Notes:

1. All markers are saved in the same folder as the program in a plain
text file named

2. By default the program is installed in the folder
You can change the installation folder during setup, but be aware that
if you install it into the
Program Files
folder, the program may have problems writing to the directory due to
insufficient permissions.

3. Do not attempt to use the program while multiple instances of
Winamp are running. I have not tried to account for this yet so you
will probably experience unpredictable results. Although if you
create a marker using any of the hotkeys while a specific instance of
Winamp is the active window, it will use that instance as the source
for a new marker.

Finally, I wrote this over the last couple of days so there may still
be unforeseen behavior and bugs.

Announcements about updates to Winamp Time Markers and my other
projects will be posted on the Tech Talk mailing list.

I looked at the information for the NVDA Winamp add-on. It doesn't
have the ability to create and work with bookmarks, or whatever else
you might want to call them such as time markers. That doesn't mean
that no one has devised something, but a Google search showed no such

I have other players and I use them for specific purposes where they
do something Winamp doesn't do or do it much better. But I use Winamp
for general use. I don't know if or how you would do this in other

Does it works with VLC as well? If not, is there any way to do
something similar using this player?

If you want to use Winamp, you may. I don't know about other
programs such as VLC player. This requires a few steps but it is very
logical. Also, there is an NVDA Winamp add-on. I don't know what
different functions it has.

To do this mmanually, do the following:
When you are at the point where you want to make the bookmark, pause
play by pressing c.
Open the Winamp jump to time dialog, control j.
You are in a field that shows the current time position you are in.
NVDA says selected. That means you don't have to select it. Simply
use control c to paste it to the clipboard.
Paste the time into a Notepad file and save it with whatever name you
want wherever you want.
The next time you want to resume reading and use the manually created
book mark equivalent, open the Notepad file, select the time with
control a for select all, and copy it to the clipboard.
Close Notepad if you wish.
Start the file playing in Winamp. Pause it so you can hear your
screen-reader easily.
Open the jump to time dialog, control j.
Paste the time in with control v.
Press enter.
You are now at the place where you want to resume.

This may sound like a lot of steps but they are very logical and use
concepts, such as copy and paste that are commonly used in Windows and
Windows programs. If you try this two or three times, you may find it
is much easier than it may sound when reading.

Are you using Winamp with JAWS or NVDA? JAWS has a feature that
allows you to make a book mark although that isn't part of the actual
program. I don't know if NVDA has an add-on that does this. Whether
it does or not, you can manually make the equivalent of one. If you
want, I'll explain how.

What app are you using to read the audio book. Most that I have
used have their own bookmarking feature.
