Re: [orca-list] What is the state of audio recording on Lynnox using orca?

This leads to a question that _I_ have always had: Is there an audio
player that can give fine-tuned coordinates if desired? I generally
use mplayer, but if I leave orca running, it spits out all kinds of
things that make no sense. On the other hand, ffplay becomes silent of
verbal output. I have had moderate success with cmus, but it
approximate, AND it seems more interested in organizing my files into
a library when I simply want it to play a specific file.

Yeah, I use sox. What I typically do is type the sox command into a text
buffer and then copy/paste it into a terminal window. If I want to cut a
few words out of a recording, I painstakingly repeat sox commands until
i find the beginning. Then i run sox commands until i find the end. Then
I run a sox command to cut out the segment. But I don't do that much
sound file editing.

Hello James,

For editing, audacity is barely accessible with speech and I don't know
any other graphical application accessible with speech. maybe others do?

However dae (Digital Audio Editor) from Willem Van der Walt) is a
console application fully accessible with speech. the is also sox which
has some editing feature.

For recording I suggest to just use arecord on the console. Maybe there
are accessible graphical front-ends, I will let other answer on that.

Hi everyone

Hope you are all keeping safe and well.

I’ve done some rudimentary searching on the Internet but I’m unable to
find an answer to my question. So I thought I would ask you.

Could somebody please advise on the current level of accessibility
when it comes to audio recording and editing using orca please?


Kind regards
