EchoShack Latest Update now available!

New Release of EchoShack Application 20th June 2010. Now Available from File Repository.



What’s New?

Version 1.3.1.5 onwards

I have added a log file to record all the messages and timestamps that appear in the Left Hand text message window. You will find this log is auto saved in MyDocuments/echolink/ folder as “chatlog.txt”. You can save the log file as a csv file from the Log window menu and then open in Excel.

The center top panel will now show “Who is Talking Now” Call sign and name. This was added after I was monitoring the Haiti Earthquake Echolink conference with 100+ people connected. I was unable to find who was talking before the short messages ended! It seems that Echolink does restrict the number of station displayed in the list but this new feature will show who is talking OK. (As you may guess it’s difficult to test!).

Fixed the bug where the minimized icon on the taskbar in Vista & Windows 7 showed up twice.
Fixed a conflict with Jaws & Windows Eyes. Version 1.3.1.5 released on 20th June 2010

Changed the Clocks and some other features to use, Free Open Source components. The upgrade cost for the original components was a bit steep. I also had to upgrade my Delphi to support Windows 7.

Added a space after the > in the Left text window so the http URL’s and mailto links are always clickable. If you have not noticed if someone sends you a text message with a fully formed URL you can click on it to visit the page or send an email.

 

This version can now be used with the Free Screen Reader NVDA from :-
