Recording and Playing Audio Notes
Notes you type while recording an audio note are attached to the audio note.
You can click the playback links in these typewritten notes to revisit parts of
a recording. For example, to play back a part of your professor’s biology
lecture, you can go to the note you wrote while your professor spoke, click the
playback link inside the note, and hear the part of the lecture that interests
you. In this way, you can use audio and typewritten notes to go to and hear
specific parts of a lecture or meeting.
Recording an audio note
Make sure your microphone is ready to go because OneNote begins
recording audio notes as soon as you click the Record Audio button. Open the page
where you want to store the note and follow these steps to record an audio
1. On the Insert tab or (Audio & Video) Playback tab, click the Record
As shown in Figure 2-9, you go immediately to the (Audio & Video)
Playback tab (if you weren’t there already), and OneNote begins
2. Direct your microphone to whatever you’re recording — your own
voice or someone else’s.
The clock at the top of the tab tells you how long the recording is. You
can click the Pause button to suspend the recording; click Pause a
second time to resume recording.
As you record, type notes to describe what you’re hearing. You can use
these typewritten notes as references when you play back the recording.
3. Click the Stop button when you want to finish recording the audio
Notes are named for the page where they are stored. The WMA icon on
the note tells you that the note is a .wma (Windows media audio) file
