Stereo Mix Available via Dell

Webcast Academy - Wed, 2007-12-12 23:26

Stereo Mix - a reality.  I’m talking about the sound card option that had been removed on some Dell laptops and desktops purchased during the past few years.   The option was not available, on purpose.  This week, Dell released a new driver where the Stereo Mix option is a choice. My laptop is now letting me successfully record both sides of a Skype conversation.  I really did not believe it was going to work – but it does!  Here are my steps:

I'm Back

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-11-25 23:14

I'm back, finally. Things got extremely busy and I had to take a step back. Hopefully I can keep up with class 2.4 when it starts and finally complete the activities (or at least more than I have so far.) I have had some time to play with Audacity, but I still have a lot to learn. I haven't even started trying to record both ends of a phone call let alone moving on from there.

Balancing Things Out . . . ?

Webcast Academy - Wed, 2007-11-14 16:43

. . . An attempt to restore a kind of balance.


Every time I thought about my abortive attempt to record the Skype group conversation with Carla Arena, Erika Cruvinel, a­nd a number of students from Carla's online class "Listening Plus," I felt bad— mostly because I didn't want the students to feel that what they had heard was typical of
international communication via Skype—
and I felt worse because several of them said that they were excited to be able to talk with "a real American."

Hoping to turn a colossal lemon into some lemonade, I transcribed what I said in the original Skype recording and re-re­corded it.

If you click ­HERE, you'll be taken to a webpage with a written introduction, then a link to the actual re-recording.

2007-11-11: Skype Recording and Streaming--D. Oliver

Webcast Academy - Sun, 2007-11-11 17:59


Oy, vey ist mir . . . . 

This past week, Carla Arena,
Erika Cruvinel, and I had
a Skype conversation with
Carla's online students in
Brasília, Brazil. Carla set up
the streaming, and my job
was to record the session.
We did­ a test about 20 minutes
before the session began, and
everything seemed to be
working OK. I was able to
record everything, but when
I checked it later, the results were . . . not stellar.­
