Sonocent Audio Notetaker is software for PC or Mac which offers a visual and interactive form of note taking. Audio recordings are transformed from a single stream of information to easy to interpret coloured bars. Audio Notetaker is an ideal piece of assistive technology software to help those who struggle with note-taking.
The software allows the user to import their audio from their computer or a portable device such as a digital voice recorder. Alternatively, the user can record audio straight into the software using a headset, microphone or the computer’s microphone.
Each phrase in the recording is split into manageable sections. The user can easily manage their recording by highlighting sections that perhaps they didn’t understand or think is important into different colours. These colours can be amended and titled to mean different things for the user. They can also delete, move and edit sections. PowerPoint slides, images, and more, can be added into the file and is instantly matched up to the relevant part of audio recording.
The Olympus Sonority software included with the Olympus Digital Voice Recorders lets you connect your recorder to a PC to transfer, manage and edit audio files.
There are a wide array of functions to help you make the most of the sounds you record, with quick and easy operations.
It also provides several web services like RSS Information and Podcast Channels.
