Memory Stick Voice Recorder
I keep getting ideas while lugging my 9 month around so I need a one-handed capture tool. I had a look at voice recorders and most of them seem to have a whole load of bells and whistles that I don't need. I did see some "memory stick" voice recorders on that online auction site that look interesting. Simply switch the switch, say my idea and on the odd occasion I get to my laptop plug in the USB port, listen to the wav file(s?) and process the ideas. No batteries- recharges from USB, lightweight and easy to carry and presumably can be switched with one hand.
Has anyone used one of these? The only downside I can see is audio quality. Years ago I tried a cheapo voice recorder and the quality was so bad that I could not understand what I was saying!
Olympus voice recorder and Dragon Naturally Speaking
I have an older Olympus WS-400S voice recorder. Dragon Dictate does a decent job of transcribing what I record on it; have done a lot of writing of reports in the car, dictating odd "capture" items, etc. Like any inbox you have to empty it though.
