After a post on givaway of the day http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/ had  feedback about free screen recorders

Two that came up were

Looks like a tsunami of change again for Multimedia.

  • Flash CS5
  • Microsoft Visual studio/Silverlight
  • HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript?

Darn!!!!

Not sure about the legality, but for students (and you) to use youTube videos (offline) in presentations (especially if your organisation has a firewall that blocks YouTube) you can try http://www.videodownloadx.com/ which will allow them to download the videos.

WebAnywhere is a web-based screen reader for the web. It requires no special software to be installed on the client machine.

Interesting to get a web page and listen to how the page is read back.
