Beware of Audio Magic
Greetings. I've just heard of a new program called Audio Magic. DO NOT (previous words in all caps) install this program. It claims to be an accessible audio editing software, but in fact it's a trogen horse, or piece of malicious software, that will get into your computer and ruin the data. For more, refer to the Blind access Journal podcast of 3/19/06. Probably the most disturbing part of this story is that the supposed accessible software was written by blind person (s). This proves that anyone can write malicious software, whether blind, sighted, in a wheelchair--it doesn't matter anymore.
