This sounds like an exciting project and tool. Unfortunately, as
an .exe file it won't run on Macs. Since I'm also running Parallels
and Windows on my Mac, I'll try to download it there.
I'm curious about the tool since I've been recording my lectures and
creating DVD's with the audio synced to the slides and a copy of the
syllabus as a PDF on the DVD. I spoke about this in Ft. Wayne and
recently wrote an article on it for the Genealogical Speakers Guild
newsletter, SPEAK! My hope is that more speakers will take this
opportunity to provide their lectures in a way that meets the needs
of the community. With Repeat Performance gone, and the national
conferences struggling to afford to record lectures and pay
royalties, I believe this is a way for speakers to fill the gap, AND
create a new revenue stream. (For an example you can visit my
website listed below.)
Thanks for sharing this.
