"Installation on Windows 7"
I installed it on Windows 7 and the setup program could not copy or modify some files, but the program worked seemingly okay.
I could not raise the volume in Windows 7, but maybe I did something wrong.
The volume worked when I tried again. The keyboard shortcuts are cumbersome: Alt-R to Rewind, Alt-F to forward, etc. I prefer a one button shortcut such as F10 to play, F11 to pause, and some keyboard combination for the less frequently used functions. I could not modify the Audio Setup from within the program in Windows 7. I do not think it has a menu to modify the shortcuts. The window could be made less tall to give more space to the document window above (there are some buttons that can be reduced in height. The interface from Sony for its digital dictation software is better: smaller, has file split and combine buttons, and several other functions. The name of the program once installed is Legal Easy Digital Transcription.

Updated on Nov 11, 2010I want to recommend you the Sony Digital Voice Editor.
For Windows Vista Home Basic use:
Choose: Digital Voice Editor.
For Windows XP use: http://esupport.sony.com/LA/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=ICDP630F&SelectOS=7#div_pos_19
For others just look at the menus and choose the correct one.
That program is a sound editor and player and is great for typing while you listen to the sound files. It has play, pause, rewind, forward, mute, single click increase of the volume, buttons to slow or increase the speed, split and join files, etc. It can work with Dragon Naturally Speaking for transcriptions and can convert Wav files to MP3. It uses an uncommon extension (dvf) and there is a free player available for it too. The program can be used in full size view or in simple player mode (small size). It is great for transcribing in single player mode. It comes with Sony digital voice recorders.
