Making effective note taking in lectures possible for a student with dyslexia

Studies have shown that note taking by hand is something few of us can do effectively. Students are expected to process information, identify the important material and capture everything for review -- often for an hour or more at a time. This is cognitively taxing for any student. And it’s often impossible for students with dyslexia or other disabilities, which affect handwriting and working memory.

Darren is a law student whose dyslexia makes it especially difficult to take notes in lectures. But with Audio Notetaker, he can now create comprehensive, meaningful audio-based notes from lecture recordings. With Audio Notetaker working with audio recordings is accessible and intuitive. The software visualises each spoken phrase as a coloured chunk, which can easily be navigated, edited and highlighted. After taking their recording and making live annotations with Audio Notetaker, students can listen back at a pace that suits them, typing summaries and creating their final notes.

The resulting Audio Notetaker projects can be utilised for revision, essay composition and other key study tasks.
