Suggestions for sound recording programs: was, New Member (5)

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.

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.

Hi,

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 accessible.

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.

sincerely,

Jolene.

Hi,
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.

Hi,
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.
Thanks.

as with so many programs, a lot of what you do are program commands.  Audacity commands for play, record, and for editing are program commands.  As in so many cases, if you know how to use a program, you can do a good deal with it regardless of screen-reader.  Many people use Gold Wave and Audacity with NVDA.  At times, JAWS may have scripts that allow you to do more or do some things more easily.  At times, NVDA may have been nodified to allow it to work more fully or in an automated way with a program. 
You can often learn a lot from tutorials or a written guide written for blind users regardless of which screen-reader they may have been written for. 
 
If you know your screen-readers commands such as read current line, etc. and how to review the screen. you can use a lot of program commands and look at the screen if you don't get automatic readout. 
 
I don't know what you want to do with these programs.  I did a basic tutorial for Audacity explaining how to edit and the basics of the program.  the program has some new features that weren't covered and one of them might be very useful in editing.  But you will get a good basic knowledge of how to edit and play and record.  I can find a download link if you want it.  Others may make other suggestions such as the written user Guide to the program with JAWS.  I believe that more advanced users may find this to be useful but it is very densely written, more like a manual and I think most beginner users are far better off using an actual tutorial with oral instructions and demonstrations.

Hi Gene,
It would be really appreciated if you could share links to your
tutorial and other guides you mentioned that teach Audacity, even if
intended for use with JAWS. I shall adapt.
The previous audio tutorial series I had tried understanding from was
primarily using the JAWS scripts features which provide automatic
read-outs, and I was unable to find an alternative source for the same
information, despite having reviewed the screen. It was sort of a
little intimidating, to be true.
Thanks.

Very interesting, thanks! I have found two possible products:

Virtual Recorder which offers a free trial but does cost to have the full copy

Or

Virtual audio recorder by DDMF which costs €15 to buy.

 

Which one are you recommending?

 

All the best,

Hi,

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.

A great deal of the use of Audacity doesn't require scripts.  You may well find that you can do what you want without them.
 
Regarding my presentation, I'll say that there may be an error in it.  I had thought that you have to save files before editing them.  If that ever was true, it isn't now.  I haven't used enter to select files or tracks so I didn't discuss that.  Indeed, that may be one reason I believed you had to save files, because I didn't know things about selection.  When I started using Audacity, selecting a track either wasn't possible from the keyboard or wasn't spoken.  That has long not been the case. 
 
In other words, others may discuss track selection here.  my tutorial will work if you follow it but if you want to edit before saving, you may need to know some things I didn't discuss.
 
My tutorial discusses both audacity and MP3 Direct cut.  You can download it here:

Hi Gene,
It would be really appreciated if you could share links to your
tutorial and other guides you mentioned that teach Audacity, even if
intended for use with JAWS. I shall adapt.
The previous audio tutorial series I had tried understanding from was
primarily using the JAWS scripts features which provide automatic
read-outs, and I was unable to find an alternative source for the same
information, despite having reviewed the screen. It was sort of a
little intimidating, to be true.
Thanks.

Chuckle... I know what you mean, I now do not know where this started to read back to.
I still use old version of Goldwave, but there are quite a few and I'd advocate seeing which one suites your needs best and is built the way you want it to be. I did try Audacity, but found the project and all that stuff a bit too awkward when I needed to bring in and edit existing files quickly.

As I was reading the responses and the responses TO responses, I got

Hi Gene,
However many errors there may be, I am sure it will help me figure out
a bit more than where I am stuck already, and I hope I am able to
understand the more advanced non-documented or wrongly explained parts
myself. In a nutshell, all your help is really appreciated, and I am
downloading the sent podcast at the moment, and will revert back in
case doubts persist.
Thanks.

Hi Gene,
Your audio tutorial was really helpful, and even more than I am
grateful for the amount of information you provided, I am thankful for
your systematic and structural way of presenting it all.
I have been a little busy in the last day or so, so I haven't listened
to the MP3 Direct Cut demonstration, but will do that soon enough as
well.
Would folks still recommend that I issue the cursor and marker
insertion key presses half a second or so before the point I intend it

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.

Hi,

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 accessible.

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.

sincerely,

Jolene.

I'm glad you found the presentation useful.
 
Regarding when to press the brackets, I don't see why this would change.  My machine was responsive and I don’t thing the program should operate differently now.  You can experiment and see. 
 
Also, and I don't know the commands for this, newer versions of Audacity that came out after I did my tutorial finally implemented commands to hear where the markers are set. If the commands are implemented well, that would be very useful in knowing just where the markers are.  But I haven't tried them.  I seldom use Audacity these days. 
 
I believe you said you are going to join the Audacity list.  You can find out the commands there.  or you may find them with a google search or by looking at documentation.  I haven't tried to find the commands.

Hi Gene,
Your audio tutorial was really helpful, and even more than I am
grateful for the amount of information you provided, I am thankful for
your systematic and structural way of presenting it all.
I have been a little busy in the last day or so, so I haven't listened
to the MP3 Direct Cut demonstration, but will do that soon enough as
well.
Would folks still recommend that I issue the cursor and marker
insertion key presses half a second or so before the point I intend it
to be placed, or is that no longer the case, at least it probably
wouldn't on a Windows 8.1 (to be Windows 10) 8 gb RAM I5 processor

Hi Gene,
Okay, will experiment more, but am inclined to dismiss the perception
of a potential delay in marker insertion with my existing limited
experience.
That would be great if marker positions can be determined out of the
box from Audacity itself, and I am certainly going to join the
Audacity for Blind Users maling list and hope to learn further from
there too.
Thanks.

Hi,

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.

I'm not giving the direct links because there is more than one, a portable version link and an installed version.  There may also be other programs of interest on the page.

All the best,

Hi,

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.

Hi,

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 accessible.

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.

sincerely,

Jolene.

The link to the page where the download links for the program are available is

 

I'm not giving the direct links because there is more than one, a portable version link and an installed version.  There may also be other programs of interest on the page.

 

Search the page using your screen-reader's find command for the word recorder.
