the_0ne has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Greetings fellow monks. I ask for your wisdom again. I am in need of some way that will allow me to record a sound file using a normal computer microphone. I know there are many modules out there that can do the easiest part, recording, however, my main problem is I need to be able to then modify the sound file. For instance, the user needs the ability to go back 10 - 15 seconds and either insert a part they missed or even overwrite some of the sound file they just recorded.
The other pre-requisite is that this needs to not only work in the linux world, it needs to work on the latest version of Mac OSX (which I think is Tiger verion 10) and also windows 2000/XP. So, I guess I could have just said cross-platform.
This is for a dictation system I am writing for our attorneys. The old system is in Visual Basic (cringes) and uses a WAV control. I wrote it over 5 years ago and it's worked great since then, however we are switching everybody in the company over to linux machines and/or mac mini's and the dictation system needs to be replaced.
Thanks in advance for any wisdom you can shed upon my query.
