That means there’s a need to take copious notes just to remember who said what, and who was assigned to do what and when. My wife is a teacher and she and her students have a similar problem. Notes and assignments. Here’s a solution for Mac users that might cover both.
Type And Record
Executives and managers who show up at meetings with a Mac admittedly are few, though growing in number. I’m one.
If you’re looking for a good way to record the audio of a meeting, classroom, lecture, or presentation, one way to do it is with the eXtra Voice Recorder app for the Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
What it does is what anyone who needs to be precise and accurate about what was said in a meeting, classroom, or presentation needs.
Audio recording with notes.
First, eXtra Voice Recorder is what you think it is. It’s a Mac audio recording app with a few extras.
That means it can record audio, edit audio, combine fragments of audio and playback the audio you record. Click the Menubar icon to begin recording. It’s that simple.
eXtra Voice Recorder handles markers, tags, notes and comments so you can easily find important locations within the audio recording.
Handy features include basic MP3 or M4A (AAC) audio recording for compatibility with other apps, background saving to Dropbox so audio notes are available to iPhone and iPad (and back to the Mac). The built-in pause detector stops the recording when it detects a period of silence, but starts back when it detects sound again.
It doesn’t have quite the same list of features as another favorite, Notability, but is priced the same, though it’s more convenient to use from within any Mac app by living in the Menubar.
