I wonder if you might consider adding a status bar (or similar) to indicate the uploading process. The applet currently just says "Uploading..." and I'm left wondering if it is working, or if it has failed in some way. It would also give me an idea of how long I need to wait...
>consider adding a status bar (or similar) to indicate the uploading process.
The applet actually does have a status bar (and display the wave form). However, I think that sometimes, depending on the size of a user's display, it does not show up...
How big is your monitor?
Have you changed the size of the text on your screen in any way?
In FireFox, if you click View>Zoom>Zoom In, it enlarges the size of the characters on your screen, but as a side effect, this reduces the space available for the Java Applet and it automatically compresses things, and the upload bar (and the waveform display) sometimes disappears.
I have added to ticket Trac to try to figure a way around this.
