Tutorial: Recording the Output of Other Software Programs
(Internet Transmissions) on a Computer with a Screen Reader
This tutorial provides recommendations on how to
avoid recording the output of a screen reader along with the sounds that you actually want to be recorded.
If you have the Professional or VideoPro Edition
of Total Recorder and need to record an Internet transmission, then
your first step is to check if the transmission to be recorded is
supported for being Background
This would be the preferred method since you will
be able to use a screen reader without affecting the recording.
If recording in Background recording mode is impossible
or you have the Standard Edition of Total Recorder, then set Total
Recorder to record in Software mode using the Total Recorder kernel-mode
audio driver. For this:
- Launch the installation of Total Recorder.
- In the third step of the installation wizard (next to accepting
the License Agreement) click Advanced... button.
- In the Total Recorder driver dialog opened uncheck all
options but Install kernel-mode virtual device driver.
- Complete the installation. Then reboot.
- Set a screen-reader to use directly your soundcard driver (not
Total Recorder driver).
This page provides a common approach that will work on the majority
of modern computers. But, there are also other more specific variants.
