As has been pointed out in that thread, QCast doesn't work anymore, at least for me it's stopped playing or downloading unless there's been an update which I doubt. I too don't have a device, nor do I want to use iTunes because it's clunky garbage, ditto with the webbIE stuff. QCast worked just fine for me and I wish it still did. But it doesn't, so here I am. I don't want Apple anything, I'm not buying a device, and I don't want to do my own googling for podcasts and chasing down URLs and pasting them in somewhere and hoping they'll download. Basically, I want something a lot like QCast, exactly like it if it can be managed, that actually downloads and plays podcasts. In particular downloading to folders would be nice, since there was a podcast for learning Irish flute tunes I want to chase down again. I thought I'd grabbed a bunch and saved them somewhere but I'm not finding them, hence the need for a working podcatcher. I know I've tried a few before, though I can't remember names, before coming across QCast that weren't really accessible. This is under Windows 10 if it matters, and latest NVDA obviously. Anybody have any recommendations?




Hi,


Try Sharp Reader.


It works well with Windows 10 and once you have entered in the web address, this program will automatically download the next episode.


Hot keys:


Press F6 shows list of folders

Press F7 when on a folder, brings up list of feeds in the selected folder

Press F8 brings up URL - if using JAWS press shift and tab highligh link and then press enter

Press context and you can sort by name; i.e. the folders will be indexed alphabetically.


I have been using this programme for several years and it seems to work great.??
