Simply study smarter

Study software for the modern student: combine audio recordings, text and slides to create your best notes ever 

How our software helps.

Sonocent Audio Notetaker is not like other note taking tools. We have transformed the note taking process, making it easier to take better notes. It’s an approach which over 75,000 students have adopted to boost their academic performance.

We make it effortless to work with audio, displaying your recording not as a timeline, but as chunks which can be highlighted with color, edited and organized.  

The best notes take a bit of time to create. The result is a super study resource that you’ll love when you come to revise and write essays.


The Audio Notetaker workspace explained

Recorded or imported audio is visualized phrase-by-phrase as colored chunks, which you can quickly navigate, edit and organize.

Color highlight chunks instead of writing things down. Use color to extract audio, images and text into new projects.

Add notes, summaries and transcriptions.

Import images, slides and PDF documents.

Export your project as text documents, music files or videos.


Take better notes, get better results

Studies show that better notes lead to better results. But people often forget that summerising your lecture as notes is a key part of active learning.

Audio Notetaker is a study tool which will enable you to make the best notes possible.

Instead of writing notes in your lecture, highlight important bits as you record. Then come back to your recording to create an excellent study resource featuring audio, text and images.

Relaxed, stress-free note taking

Taking notes and staying focussed throughout an hour-long lecture is not easy and it certainly isn’t always fun. There are times when no amount of coffee will get your brain functioning. 

Audio Notetaker captures the entire lecture and makes it easy to return to any key points, you can relax, safe in the knowledge you aren’t missing a thing. 


One workspace to rule them all

With Audio Notetaker you can bring audio, text, images, and slides together, and work with them all in one space.

Use audio and text interchangeably. Convert your text into audio, or your audio into text. 

The visual, multisensory nature of the software makes it a versatile tool for anyone.


Truly mobile and super convenient

Record, annotate and review with the device in your pocket.

Sonocent Recorder is our free companion app. Use it to take high-quality recordings of your lectures. Highlight with colour, type notes, and take pictures. Then transfer your files straight into Audio Notetaker to take your notes. Once you’re done, export to iTunes to review on the move.

Case Studies

Sophie Chalmers Journalist

Journalist Sophie Chalmers recently tried out Audio Notetaker. To say she loves it is an understatement.

Sophie has been an editor and journalist for 21 years. Although she learned shorthand many years ago, she never really got into it – it’s hard to build a rapport with interviewees when your mind is focused entirely on capturing what someone says. So she switched to Dictaphones. The beauty of these is that they record everything. That is also their downside – back at her desk, hours of an interviewee rambling has to be transcribed. Not forgetting the pain of missing one key word and having to listen to the last minute all over again.

Enter Audio Notetaker. Sophie discovered the software by chance. As editor of a special educational needs magazine, she was investigating tools to help young people with dyslexia, and interviewed a teacher for an article entitled Modern note-taking for complex subjects – study tools for students with dyslexia. For this, Sophie used her trusty Dictaphone.
