don't know about the scripts issue, as haven't had that here.
I assume you found the "record" option in the menus? if not, it's in the "extras" menu.
once you are in that, have set your file name, format, and all that, press the alt key for the menu, and one will come up called "record"
in there, you should find 4 options,
and "new file".
hope that helps.

Hey there,

So I downloaded the arthax program, and every  time it asks if I want to install the scripts, I say yes. And it says  error cant’ install scripts and closes.

I also checked the website and the articles section, and there is nothing on how to record with the program.

Can you give me some pointers please?

I’ve got it set to Flac and max compression but dunno what to do from here.

for the recording, I would say give arthax a go. I am using it with win7,

but as it is a fairly new program, don't see why it wouldn't work with


it has a super useful audio monitoring feature, which is great if one needs

to set levels, eq, and things, and it can do wav, mp3, or flac recordings.

have been using it to remaster a lot of tapes over the covid imprisonment



I tend to use wavepad for any editing work.


hope this helps.

I only need simple stereo recording, and do not need  a multi-track


I'm only recording off an FM tuner.

For audio recording I highly recommend Audacity and/or Reaper. Both are

accessible with either JAWS or NVDA. For Reaper you must download an

extension called OSARA in order to use it with screen readers though.


Recording in Audacity is easier and involves less steps, it is also great

for basic editing and splicing of recordings and it should work with loop

playback. However, if you're doing more extensive work with effects and need

better, non destructive fading and stuff, Reaper is better. If anything, I

recommend having both on your system because you may find both useful for

different things. Audacity is totally free and open source while Reaper has

an indefinite full featured trial period so you could use it for free

forever, however you should pay the $60 license if you can.


By the way, Audacity and Reaper are some of the most popular and mainstream

audio editing and mixing apps in the sighted world too :)
