The magic

Sonocent’s software solves the
4 problems of working with audio
  • {credits}

    Finding the important
    parts of a recording

    Navigating through audio hasn’t improved much since the days of magnetic tapes. Stop, rewind, play, fast-forward – there’s no meaningful way of moving through your audio.

    Instead of the single stream of information you get with standard audio, Audio Notetaker splits your recording up into individual phrases and displays them on screen as a bar.

    It’sthedifferencebetweenthis or writing like this. Sort of.

    Annotating your audio for future reference or to share thoughts

    So, your recording is full of really useful information – great! How do you now share that information, or label it so you can find it again later?

    Sonocent’s software allows you to break your recording into sections (which are like paragraphs) and write text next to each bit to label that part of the recording.

    Then add images, presentation slides or PDF documents.

    You can also use colour to label individual phrases, or entire sections.

    on listening

    Some of us get accused of not listening to people talking directly at us. How are we supposed to concentrate on listening to a long recording!?

    Sonocent’s software is visual and engaging, turning a passive process into an interactive one.

    You control your audio: delete unnecessary parts, move things around, organise, mark. It’s fun!

    Organising your audio files

    Audio files often have funny names. And even when they don’t, how do you know what’s inside?

    Sonocent’s software helps you organise your recording, by tagging it with extra details such as title, topic and speaker.

“The product is clean, easy to use and for those like me who are not particularly computer literate, is very easy to navigate and get used to.”
Lindz Brewer, student, Open University
'Audio notetaker is 'must have' software for students, especially for those whose first language is not English. I have used it for over six months and found it incredibly useful and beneficial. I am confident that you won't regret it once you start using it!"
Yangyang Shao, China
“Every English teacher, at the very least, should be equipped with this software, if only for assessment. Once they realise what it can really do, then a whole new dimension of teaching will emerge.”
Carol Weale, English Teacher, England
“I am constantly reviewing presentations by both current and prospective teachers. I often have to share my notes with my supervisor, which until now involved a lot of tedious cutting and pasting and synchronizing with Powerpoint. Audio Notetaker is the perfect solution; I wish I had this a while ago!”
Dov P, Principal, K-8, USA
“This software was painlessly and quickly inserted into my trial practice with very little learning curve. It is slick, smooth and does not hang up, providing instant playback when required. Highly recommended.”
Gerry McGeachy, Lawyer, Canada
“This software is powerful, but brimming with simplicity. I really couldn’t imagine using digital audio recordings without it now.”
D Smith, student, Warwick University, England
