Replay Music 7

Replay Music 7 was released about 10 days ago. NVDA handles the RM7 Settings
much better than JAWS as JAWS does not tell the user if a setting is enabled
or disable. If you find a way let us know. I have already told Applian about
this. RM7 is developed by a different programmer. Read the user guide. Key
shortcuts are,

alt+r to start / stop recording
alt+s to split recording

The user interface is different from RM6.

I am able to use RM7 with either JAWS or NvDA screen readers.

If you have RM6 on your PC already you can still use it even if you install
RM7 on the same PC.

They can coexists on the same PC.

It has four controls on the main user interface. They are,
Get Support

Think of the above four as tabs. Once focused on a tab simply press your tab
keyboard key to see what it contains. Note the Guides tab contents are
silent and not accessible with JAWS / NVDA but if you press your enter key
when it says blank you will be taken to a website that you can record from.
There are many websites.

The Settings tab control has five property tab sheets. The first tab is
called personalization.

The settings properties has no ok or cancel buttons. So keep tabbing or
shift tab to get out of the Settings screen.

RM7 can be used by a blind person and it records well. Tracks are shown in
its list view and you can navigate this list view of tracks with your arrow
keys or by first letter navigation.

Replay Media Catcher 5 Basic / Advanced mode

Functionally, there is no significant difference in the view modes. The
basic mode presents the interface as thumbnails with limited tabs at the top
(just Library, Guide, and Schedule). The advanced view will show all the
available tabs (Library, internet, Audio, History, Guide, and Schedule) as
well as the Media Folder navigation on the left.

Windows 8 Secure boot

Windows 8.1 has new security "features" which will interfere with the Audio
Driver in RM6 as well as Replay Media Catcher 5 and Replay Radio 9. For all,
Secure Boot needs to be turned off in the BIOS in order to pull audio out of
programs. I am unsure if this is possible to do using your screen reading

Petro's suggestion of using a second USB sound card might get around the
issue, but this is not something that we test at Applian. You might need
whoever sold you the computer to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS.

Blog: Let’s Talk About Replay Media Catcher and HTTPS

Let's Talk About Replay Media Catcher and HTTPS
‎Yesterday, ‎May ‎16, ‎2014, ‏‎2:05:10 PM | debbie

Keeping up with the constant changes in streaming protocols is just the job for Replay Media Catcher's Engineers. They like a challenge and frequently whip up very smart solutions to very tough problems. If you've installed the most recent version of Replay Media Catcher, you'll see that we've made some great improvements. And if you like to download streams from YouTube, then you've likely seen the new prompt to install a CA certificate. So what's that all about? Have no fear! We're here to break it down for you. Let's get nerdy, shall we?
YouTube and some other sites now stream their media over an HTTPS connection by default. So what is HTTPS? Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure is the secure version of http. Typically used when a secure connection is necessary. Like for ecommerce transactions and such. When you connect to a website that is using HTTPS, the session is encrypted with a Digital Certificate.
Let's first look at how Replay Media Catcher downloads, then we'll explain how installing the CA Certificate helps it to do it's job better. When you switch on Replay Media Catcher, it starts sniffing the network traffic. Looking for media to download. As you come across streaming video or music, Replay Media Catcher decodes that network traffic and if it understands what it is seeing on the network, it tries to detect and download the media based on intelligence we've written for that protocol. Pretty slick, right? That's how Replay Media Catcher can download so much more without browser plugins. It simply does not need them. It only listens to the network.
Let's say you've switched on Replay Media Catcher's monitoring and you're happily browsing along and decide to download the latest viral video on YouTube. Remember we said that YouTube is now streaming their media over an HTTPS connection.. SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. When you see HTTPS in the URL, you are using the SSL/TLS protocol to speak to that website. Replay Media Catcher will then not understand that traffic and disregard it. That sounds like bad news, right? Nope! Read on…
If you're running Replay Media Catcher version or later, you'll notice a new prompt when it first sees media from a site that is streaming over HTTPS. This prompt explains that in order for Replay Media Catcher to scan for media that is streamed over HTTPS, a CA certificate is required to be created. A CA (Certificate Authority) is an authority in a network that issues and manages security credentials.
You can choose to allow HTTPS scanning or not. If you choose no, Replay Media Catcher will ignore any HTTPS streaming and you'll be sad. That breaks my heart. Say YES!

If you choose YES, (and we recommend you do) then Windows will prompt you to install the CA certificate. Windows presents you with this:

The title of the window says "Security Warning". Yeah, well…it's not a problem. Windows is just letting you know that a certificate is about to be installed. Windows says that it cannot validate the certificate as actually being from Replay Media Catcher, but have no fear. We have created a certificate called Replay Media Catcher 5 SSL Scanner Root. Essentially, it allows Replay Media Catcher to scan HTTPS traffic like that being served by YouTube for downloadable media. It is absolutely safe. And you are not putting yourself or your computer in any danger by installing it.
Don't miss out on all the great streaming goodness that Replay Media Catcher can download. It's waaay smarter than any other streaming media downloader. Guaranteed!
Don't hesitate to contact us with any questions!

Choose Settings

Right arrow until you hear HTTP ADV tab and press your enter key to make the HTTP ADV tab the active tab sheet.
Press your tab key now and you will hear the checkbox for the HTTP/SSL scanning option
Prfess your spacebar to uncheck the checkbox if needed.
Press your tab key a few times to locate the OK button and press enter to save your settings.
The above assumes you installed the certificate already.

Replay Media Catcher & Recording External Audio Source

Like with Replay Radio you can record the audio sound from an external audio source like from a radio or stereo receiver with Replay Media Catcher Simply choose the Schedule tab with enter keypress and then tab over to the schedule for a future time button and press enter key on this button. The Scheduler screen will appear where you can set the time, capture and device settings. You will need to connect a cable from your external source to the computer's input or for me to the USB sound card's mic input 1/8 inch jack.

Replay Radio 9 & Recording from a source

This feature was added in an earlier version with Replay Radio 9 and I tested today. Was able to schedule a recording with a start time to record from an external source like from a radio unit's headphone output jack connection to a USB sound card's mic input jack. Scheduler was set to capture from record audio (device) and Device was set USB Sound Device. I used a 1/8 inch cable to connect the radio's output to the mic input of the USB sound card. I have JAWS set to use my laptop's internal sound card while in Windows OS I have the default sound card set to the USB sound card. This allows me to use my screen reader without being interrupted. Possibly if I used amplification I would have heard the sound output from the radio but with no amplification I could not monitor the sound from the radio during recording with Replay Radio 9. Works great for me.
