06/14/2004 Entry: "Finally, some updates: duber dot com: Voice Mail--version 1.5c Demo"

Greetings all,

It has been a long time since my last entry. The usual excuses apply--too much work, not enough free time, etc. Over the past weekend, I finally found some time to update my voice recording and playback application and have just posted a new version, called 1.5c.

Updated features in the recording tool include a report of the recording length in seconds immediately after the user completes a successful recording. The user sees instant notification on screen of an unsuccessful recording as well with a tip to check their microphone settings (see below for further discussion).

I've added a set of control buttons to the playback tool for pausing, stopping, replaying, and seeking (forward and back through) a stream. In addition, there are now onscreen displays for the current and total playback time in seconds along with the length of the stream in buffer in seconds.

The following demonstration will open in a new browser window:


duber dot com: Voice Mail--version 1.5c Demo

(Free Flash 6 Player or higher required.)

There's still a bit of polish to add for the version 2.0 release (including a control bar that the user can drag, improved button feedback, and more).

Regarding failed recordings--it seems that some are the result of double-clicking on the record/stop button, which is a toggle. In the next update, I will adapt a more standard recording interface as this current version starts to do with the playback controls.
