Record on time

Press the Record button and start recording when the icon lights up red. Record is not enabled until the icon is red.

Make it flexible

If this section is too short to record yet, try recording the remainings in the next section. And if the content is not important, it's okay to use the flexibility to skip it.

Use Saving features

Please click the [Temp. save] or [Save] button during the operation. Using the [Save] button, you can prepare for situations in which recorded voices are reset due to unexpected errors. Also, you can divide the images several times at a time that are hard to complete.

Adjust mic. position

Recording the microphone too close in front of the mouth can cause recording the wind sound from the mouth or a mix of noise. Record the microphone on the right or left side of your mouth to prevent noise and get a better quality result.
