Re: Adding Time-Stop Marks to Audio Tracks

The nvda add on is purely to voice other shortcuts in winamp. That is another piece of software. If you read to the end it says who what and where to get it.

I think there’s an addon for NVDA I’m not certain I’m pretty sure there is. I know with Jaws there is. I’ve used book marks in winamp using Jaws.

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.

Selecting
"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
"Settings"
dialog if you did not use the default installation folder.

In addition to the global hotkeys which you can assign in the
"Settings"
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
Markers.txt

2. By default the program is installed in the folder
C:\WinampTimeMarkers
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 results.

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 players.

Gene,
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.

Karen,

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