A voice recorder is a device designed to easily record someone speaking and to save that recording for later use. Digital voice recorders are far more useful than their analog counterparts because the recordings can be transferred to a computer, edited with tools like Audacity and shared individually or as part of a series (podcast).<br>
Stand alone digital voice recorders are available from the Library circulation desk. Also available are iTalks, voice recorders that can be used with some models of iPods.
