I'm not sure about the Goldwave one; I suspect it is ok because that programme and accessibility methods have not changed much, but the Reaper one is seriously out of date. The accessibility structure/plugin for Reaper is not even the same, now (Osara instead of ReAccess).

If you want to learn to use goldwave -- the manual is a great place to start. There are also some free resources you can use, plus a forum. Reaper has a mailing list on which many experts post.

You can contact me off list if you want -- Reaper's presented me with some serious challenges but I'm pretty conversant with Goldwave.

Hi Jasmine,
All of his courses are paid but certainly worth the money.

Jasmine, I have purchased many of Brian Hartgen's courses and I have found them to be excellent. He is, in my opinion, one of the finest trainers in this field.

Thank you! It seems like it might be pretty cool. Are those courses free or paid? Just curious.

The course can be found at in the training courses
section. It is called 24 carrot gold wave.

Where can this course be found? I’m also interested in the gold wave
program as well.

He also has a course on Goldwave which in my opinion is the most
accessible audio editor, unless you need to do multitrack files, as
in blending separate channels, etc.
But for straight editing, it is all keyboard based and Doug lee's
scripts are enough to get you going, but I believe Brian has more
advanced scripts that come along with the course.
GoldWave is $50 to purchase, but the trial version is fully
functional so you can be sure it works for you before buying a license.
He is also working on an iOS app which will be able to use the same
A friend took his course on Goldwave and speaks highly of it.

pass himself,” and we forget that only grace can break the cycle of
ancient hatreds among peoples. (It is notable that while I have
regretted not granting grace to others, I’ve never once regretted
extending it.)" - Edward Herbert

I am looking for a course or guide of some kind for being able to
edit audio recordings with JAWS2020. I don't have a particular
program for doing this in mind yet, but I have heard that audacity
is the most accessible. I did try to follow the guide but I found
that I could not edit with it and it was overwhelming for me.
I did some research online and I see that Brian Hartgen has a
course for Reaper but it seems that the packages for Osara and
Reaaccess are not being distributed any longer.
Does anyone know of a course or guide of some kind that can be followed?
Thank you in advance.
