Its the same for me.
I get really lost on recorders and such without speech.
Talking of ipods i was thinking if i could use my Nokia 8 Android phone to do good recordings.
It has stereo input so one can reccord in stereo and if you use the Video camera you can do 360° recordings.
I think its the best Android phone i’ve had since i started with Android.

Oh cool. I don't remember if Neal meantioned intro scan. He may have but just in passing. That sounds like a great feature though. Yeah like I said with my DM520 I kinda got buy. But it still beeped. But let me tell ya I got pretty lost when I lost the speach on my IPod Nanno. I did eventually get speach back though. But it was rough.

That's a difficult question to answer given that I've been using Voice Guidance myself however I reckon that I'd b able to do most hthings if the Voice Guidance were disabled.

The Stop button takes you to the home screen for example.

From there pressing the record button once puts you into 'Record Standby" mode and a further press starts the recording.

Pressing stop at this point stops the recording or pressing enter stops the recording and plays the recording back.

Remember that Voice Guideance with Olympus recorders is certainly not perfect thus you have to get used to a few functions working without it.

Turningt the "Intro Scan" function on may well be a very good idea since the recorder doesn't announce the names of files as you scroll to know you have the right one you can then hear a couple of seconds at the beginning of each file as you scroll.

Ah but then usability is another thing. How well can 1 deal with the device not speaking? I find that I get lost pretty quick. Mind you I have used a DM 520 without speach but it did make the on and off music I think and it did beap. For recording going in and out of folders I did okayish since ya know it's Olympus. It's a DM. Not much science there. But something with no sound at all? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I wander how I'd do. Granted I'm probabaly just spoiled by blind devices.

Yes granted usability comes into the equation but not necessarily accessibility.
For example a Sony PCM-d50 doesn’t have anything much to aid accessibility but the recorder is very usable.

I believe, as adults, we should decide what to purchase by what we prefer in terms of features, price, whatever. As a blind person, my first priority is whether or not I can use the damn thing. Frankly, I'd like to continue to see specs and real-world use, but how about how accessible the device is? I'm pretty sure this is a audio list for blind guys, right??
