Studio Recorder – Editing suite for the vision impaired

“Studio Recorder is a powerful digital recording and editing software package geared to making recordings of the spoken word. It includes features not found in audio recording and editing programs primarily designed for music production. Such features include:

  • Speed up playback with no pitch distortion
  • Three levels of phrase detection
  • Index tone generation and removal
  • Instant open on large files
  • Instant cut, copy, paste, and delete
  • Intercom functionality
  • Simple user interface
  • Accessibility for blind and visually impaired users
  • Multiple user marks and notes
  • Remote control support

Studio Recorder was originally written for internal use at American Printing House for the Blind to serve as a tool for creating direct to digital audio recordings for the National Library Service (NLS). It contains many features that ease the task of recording, editing, and proofreading audio books. It also includes features that simplify the production of analog cassette tapes from the digital master, and it aids in the production of Digital Talking Books.”
