[Athen] Sonocent Audio Notetaker

Hi all

Just to poke my nose in :) The Audio Notetaker / Digital Recorder combo is recommended and used quite heavily in the UK. Most assessment centres recommend the Olympus DM 670, as it has an indexing facility built in (99 index marks per file). The student can make a new index mark every time the lecturer goes forward to a new slide, and then import it into Audio Notetaker - which will automatically split the files into sections by using the index marks.

Hi Linda - wondering if you would be so kind as to clarify... the digital recorder is a standalone unit and then the student imports the audio file to Sonocent Audio Notetaker and 'indexes' it upon review, or is it connected directly for live recording / indexing? Also, if you don't mind, what make/model have you settled on for the best pick-up for recording?

> At the Scarborough campus of the Univ. of Toronto I am recommending bursary funding for the Sonocent Audio NOtetaker on a regular basis, for students who benefit from the multi-modal aspect of capturing the audio file from the lecture, the Power point, and your notes or your volunteer notetakers, all synchronized and sequenced in the same document. We are using a digital recorder that is designed for lecture use, 50 meter recording distance, rather than phone apps, for many people, to obtain higher quality audio, esp. in the first and 2nd year larger lecture hall settings.
