For me the method of recording is important, I want to be able to get a
person to sit and watch a slideshow, chat about the picture then a
single button press moves to the following slide and starts a new audio
recording (associated with the image), it would not do to change image
then stop/start a program like audacity as the continuity of the person
talking gets broken up. dvd-slideshow looks like a nice tool to render
the final version and distribute (thx).
Perhaps the answer is write a script which would tie a key press to
image change a stop/start of records. Any suggestions for the most
appropriate scripting language, it would need to list image files in a
directory launch an image viewer, launch a recording application then,
on each key press, step through each image file and stop/start recording
with recordings being made to a filename similar to the image.. is there
an app which captures key press then executes a script ? What's the most
suitable image viewer and recording tool ?
