How I Use It
This voice recorder looks complex but we use it for simply recording students' voices which it does easily. The program allows the student to see how their voice is registering as they speak so they get a solid recording that will playback with enough volume. Student export their recording instead of saving it. If it is saved it creates an Audacity file that they can come back to an work on again. When they are finished they export the recording as a .wav file.
My Take
This program can be used as a simple recording device but it also offers students the opportunity to play around with mixing multiple tracks if they want.
