What is File and Edit?Machines with File and Edit capabilities, known as Professional Voice Recorders, will allow you to record a file and then rewind back to a particular point in the recording to either:
INSERT - Add audio at a particular point without deleting any previous audio that has been recorded.
(e.g adding the date to the beginning of a report without affecting any previous recording).
OVERWRITE - Add audio at a particular point thus deleting any audio that was recorded previously.
(e.g deleting a particular word or phrase by recording a new one, for use with making corrections.)
File and Edit capabilities are a must have for any professional when recording letters, reports or taking notes in a professional environment.
Recorders without File and EditA machine without File & Edit capabilities is known as a note-taker.
These machines are ideal for recording blocks of audio such as meetings and interviews and even lectures.
However, be careful as once you record a file you cannot re-enter and edit any of the audio.
You can only pause a recording but every time you stop recording you will begin a new file. This means that you cannot rewind and overwrite an error.
