What to Look for in a Digital Voice Recorder

When it comes to choosing the best device for recording your interrogations and interviews as an investigator, there are many features you should look for. We want to outline a few of the top features you need:

  1. Look for the recording time.

Many voice recorders boast of the recording time by claiming the higher side of it. The recording time depends on the quality of recording and the higher the audio quality the lower the recording time would be. So rather than looking for a recorder that claims 300 Hrs of recording, look for the real picture of the recording time it can give with the highest quality.

  1. Look for more storage options

Apart from voice files many digital recorders can store files, documents and images. These are equipped with the USB mass support class that helps them to store these files. Now with the storage comes the organizer, which is also an important feature to look for. Be sure that the digital recorder will store voice files in a minimum of three separate folders.

  1. Look for voice recording features

The best of the voice recorders also exhibit many ‘smart’ features that help you with the operations. Some of the interesting features you can find in the latest digital recorders are voice activation, which stops recording automatically whenever there is a long pause, or the cue/review feature that make it easier for you to find a particular recording part you want to play back.

  1. Look for Operations: t can also have a LCD screen for better operations. Some of the latest voice recorders also include software, which helps in converting the audio in a text file helping you with the transcription.
  2. Look for connectivity: Like any other latest gadget the digital recorders are equipped with USB interface for PC connectivity. It helps a lot in transfer of files from the recorder to PC and vice versa.
