Ah but could age be a thing? I've heard you can set things on the DM720
which came out a bit along with the P2. You can't set time and date on
the LS-14 which is a bit newer then the 100. We'll see what they do in
future I guess. There are lots of gaps in the 100 as well. I guess we'll
see if they fix all the multi track stuff.

Yes you’ve hit the nail on the head and the problem is a little deeper than
The Voice Guidance varies from model to model and time/date setting is a
perfect example as you can’t set the time and date yourself on the LS-100.

Actually it has more. Now you can set the time and date your self. He's just
saying that there are things you can do with the machine that Olympus didn't
have the nice British lady speak. Don't forget there's no screan reader on
these things. It's just well it use to be just a bunch of WMA files tied to
commands. Now they've baked them into the firmware.

So are you saying it has less voice guidance than prior models then or added
functions that they didn't have that don't verbalize?

I'm not saying every function could be useable without Voice Guidance on
the Olympus but I reckon 99% certainly could be with a little foreand
practise. Again many functions of the LS-p4 don' t have any Voice
Guidance feedback at all.

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.

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

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??
Those of a positive and enquiring frame of mind will leave the rest of the
halfwits in this world behind.
