This guide addresses the question of how to choose the best digital voice recorder.
Digital voice recorder: before you choose
Today, many people wrongly assume that their phones have all their needs covered. Though today many phones come with a recording application, this can only work in certain environments. Therefore, digital voice recorders help to fill the gap. For example, they can be used for dictation purposes such as for dictated business letters, memos, or to record meetings. In recent years, digital voice recorders are compact, light, and are able to record up to thousands of hours of very high-quality audio. Then, this can then be transferred via your USB to a computer for storage and transcription. In this article, we’ll be looking at some of the main features to consider when you are thinking of how to choose a digital voice recorder.
1) Battery life
Perhaps one of the main features which allow a digital voice recorder to stand out would be its unchallenged battery life. Whilst a smartphone’s battery will only last so long, digital voice recorders can have the ability to last for up to 110 hours. This is a bonus and since battery life can vary between devices it’s important to be selective when it comes to choosing your digital voice recorder. That is why it needs to be considered when purchasing for your business.
2) Ease of use
Again whilst device functions may vary the underlying bonus of opting for a dedicated recording device is that they have been specifically for a single purpose. This, therefore, improves their functionality for the user. In addition, some digital voice recording devices have an intelligent recording mode. In addition, this can avoid silence on the tape and hence wasted recording time, this can be important for meetings that need to be recorded.
A device can only function if the level of storage is sufficient for its use. Therefore, this makes it yet another reason to opt for a dedicated voice recording device. However, there are models of voice recording devices which can be up to 128kbps or up to 2080 hours at 8kbps. Again it is important to focus on this important area before making your choice of a device. Hence, for businesses with hectic schedules and meeting plans, the impressive storage will be especially welcomed.
Do not overlook the importance of choosing a voice recorder based on its screen. Indeed, to improve their functionality, choosing the right size and weight will improve the quality of your purchase.
