Note taking.

We make it easier to take better notes. Our unique approach to note taking is proven to get results.

Better notes start here.

People need to take notes in many scenarios - from the lecture theatre to the meeting room. But the way most of us do it - scribbling frantically while trying to process what we are hearing - just isn't effective.

That's why we came up with the idea for Sonocent Audio Notetaker.

With the software, you can capture everything you hear without writing, and highlight key points for review with a click. Plus you can add your slides, diagrams, and text notes to the same project.

    Unlike digital recorders, Audio Notetaker gives you a ‘bird’s eye view’ of your entire recording. Go back to the key moments with a click.


Our proven CARE process for note taking

Note taking is incredibly difficult, because there is simply too much to do at once.

But by following our CARE process (Capture, Annotate, Review, Engage), you can break the process down into manageable steps.

This way you can capture more, remember more -- and create useful resources for everything from written work to research and revision.

Read on to find out more about how our CARE process works.


Step 1: Capture

Take a recording with your laptop or our free companion app. Or import audio files that you’ve already created.

The software displays each phrase of speech as a colored chunk. This makes it easy to navigate and edit your audio.

Step 2: Annotate

Highlight the moments from your recording that you will want to go back to.

Add slides and images right alongside the related audio.

And do it all as you record with a few clicks or keyboard shortcuts.

Step 3: Review

Listen back to the moments of your recording that you highlighted and enhance the sound quality with our Audio Clean-Up toolkit.

Type or record summaries alongside your original recording within the Text Pane.

So much useful information to refer to, all in the same place!

Step 4: Engage

Pull together the ideas and source material that you will draw upon for a piece of work. Export your audio, text and images as an album, text document, or video. You can also quickly share your projects with coursemates, colleagues, and teachers.
