A voice recorder is the solution for people who want to record conversations, online meetings, notes, and ideas on a digital tape recorder or directly to the computer. Some voice recorder software allows you to edit, organize, and play back voice files. There are many audio recorder programs, and freeware sound recorders online suitable for voice recordings. The various programs are designed to do recording tasks including voice logging of multiple lines, general voice recording, and simple dictations.
