Notetalker Pro - a complete recording and note-taking solution for lectures, meetings, conferences and classes.
Notetalker enables students who struggle to listen whilst capturing key information. It facilitates engagement and active listening rather than the student engaging in high-level processing through note writing. At the same time it strengthens the link between visual and text prompts, and the spoken word. Students can organise their study materials into resources that can be used for homework, essay writing and exam revision.
Includes the Notetalker app for your smartphone or tablet, Notetalker Edit for Windows or Mac PCs, a microphone and cable kit which enables you to plug a directional microphone into any smartphone or tablet and a Notetalker Power Card.
Annotate key moments and stay focusedSave colour-coded bookmarks such as text, image or scribble pad notes against important sections of the recording. At the same time, maintain focus on the spoken word.
Harness easy note writing techniques to process informationOvercome cognitive overload by using the Cornell Technique to organise important sections of the discussion and bullet point main ideas.
Connect aural, visual and text prompts to strengthen learningCreate a permanent link between visual triggers and the spoken word by structuring colour-coded multimedia content quickly.
Personalise your notes in Notetalker EditUse Notetalker Edit - for Mac and Windows - to bring together a rich mix of media including text, photos, supporting documents, coursework or business material, beneath the linear audio bar. This creates an important visual sync between the information in the recording and the colour-coded bookmarks. These synced sound and vision notes can be customised to provide a completely personalised resource for revision, essay writing or sharing with others.
Notetaker and Notetaker EditNotetaker is an intuitive app for voice recording on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Voice recording has never been so easy with a smart user interface, unlimited free audio tagging and a photo-taking feature which helps you record both the audio and the visual memories of the lecture, discussion, meeting or other event.
It also means you only need to remember to take your smartphone or tablet with you which you were going to do anyway. No need for the digital voice recorder - another piece of kit to clutter up the briefcase or handbag.
Notetalker lets the smartphone do the work while you listen to the speaker or the discussion, and concentrate on understanding what is being said, participating in the event and making a more informed contribution. Your detailed note-taking can be done later. Tag where you feel you need to refer to later with your detailed notes. You can let the app number your bookmarks or if you have time, insert your own free text as a better tag to go back to. Take photographs when there is something on a whiteboard which is important to remember. Make memory joggers in your recording so that when you playback later you can make a better job of writing up your notes. Impress your boss or your peer group with those accurate and incisive notes.
Once you have recorded the event you can then playback, add more photo images from your device, and add or delete bookmarks from the recording. When you are ready, just connect your smartphone to your PC in your study or back at the office and upload the content of the recording to Notetalker Edit, a program for Mac and Windows PCs which helps you write your notes. Your audio recording, the tags and all the images you took earlier will be loaded into an edit screen for you to write your notes. Playback your recording, skip between tags, add another if you need it, and then add as much text as you want. Add more photo images from your PC, rotate, enlarge and look at the finer details to help you write even better notes.
Take the hassle out of note-taking and use Notetalker Edit.
Notetalker Pro comes complete with a Conversor MM1 directional microphone and universal cable connection kit for any Android or iOS smartphone or tablet. This is ideal for when you are in lecture halls, classrooms or conferences and you want to focus on the voice of one speaker at the front of the room. The directional microphone will help to focus on the speaker's voice and reduce the peripheral noise.
- Directional microphone focuses on sounds nearby or up to 5 metres away
- Adjustable in horizontal and vertical planes
- Enhances sound level and removes unwanted background noise
- Background noise reduction of up to 18dB
- Sensitivities between -30dB and -38dB
- Requires no batteries or recharging
- Standard cable with 3.5mm (1/8”) stereo jack plug
Conversor MM1 microphones are powerful, lightweight directional microphones that can be used with smartphones, tablets, voice recorders and lap-top computers for recording lectures or group discussions.
Conversor microphones increase the available sound level and filter out unwanted background noise.
Conversor microphones are ideal for use in a variety of settings that support the special needs of individuals with learning difficulties or hearing loss including classrooms, lecture halls, conference facilities, museums, health facilities, government agencies and work environments.
Conversor microphones can be placed in a raised position on a nearby surface and pointed at the sound source. The Conversor MM1 microphone can be used as an in-car microphone, lapel microphone, or attached to a lap-top screen using the accessory clips provided. Conversor microphones require no batteries or recharging, since they are powered directly by the laptop, smartphone or tablet.
Conversor microphone headset adaptor and connector plugConversor microphone headset adaptor cable can be used on its own with Apple devices: iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini and iPod Touch and certain Android smartphones including Samsung S4 and later, recent HTC, Sony Experia and Nokia smartphones and tablets. For other Android devices and earlier models, use the AHJ to OMTP connector plug supplied (4-pin 3.5mm plug to twin stereo 3.5mm socket with 3.5mm 4-pin to 4-pin AHJ to OMTP connector). This enables you to connect a microphone and headphones to your smartphone or tablet through the single 3.5mm audio socket on the device.
Some of the newer smartphone devices, laptops and iOS devices from Apple and Dell feature only a single (4-pin) 3.5mm audio socket to support both audio input and output. The Conversor adaptor splits the audio input and output into two - one that can be used for a microphone connection, and the other for connecting external headphones, earphones or speakers.
The AHJ to OMTP connector can also be used on its own to connect Apple headsets to Android smartphones and vice versa. Note: you cannot use the earphones supplied with the smartphone device with the Conversor adapter cable, as these headphones already have a 4-pin plug. Stereo headphones or earphones can be used instead.
Notetalker Power CardNotetalker Power Card is a slimline power bank which provides up to 6 hours of additional phone charge for your smartphone or iPhone whilst on the go.
