I have been appreciating this conversation. I work with a number of students looking for such technology and trying to get better recordings.
Has anyone had any luck with text-to-speech software for the iPad? I have not found anything stable. There is Voice Over but I have been trying to keep an eye out for software which would read PDF files for students with print disabilities such as LD and is not as complex to use.

It will be good to see you at AHG!
I've been running Evernote as well - on my PC, Android phone, and iPad 2.
Love the sync option! But I may try Notability for workshops as the sync of
audio & text would be very helpful. And love to hear about how a mic can be
added. Thanks, Doug!
See you soon, Gerry!
