An Introduction to Audio Notetaker by Sonocent
Audio Notetaker has utilized UDL principles to create a study and notetaking tool that makes it easy to work with audio recordings. Students first capture audio from a variety of sources such as lectures. They then annotate by adding layers of meaning with color, text, slides, images, etc. Reviewing the project ensures the content they need is available. Finally, students engage with their project through text to speech, extracting certain components into audio, video, etc. With Audio Notetaker you can bring audio, text, images, and slides together and work with them in one space. The visual, multi-sensory nature of the software makes it a versatile tool for anyone.
