Digital Voice Recording Applications – vol. 1: Family

We can often come up with some of the common uses for digital voice recorders from taking notes at work to recording lectures when a nap is at the top of the classroom agenda. This post will be the first in a series that will offer some of the lesser known uses and applications for digital voice recorders. With that, we’d like to share with you some handy and fun ways to use digital voice recorders in the family setting.

For moms on the go:

1) Record your shopping list as you look through the kitchen pantry or note the ingredients needed for a new recipe.

2) Note the family chores that each family member needs to do. Make sure the recorder is in a place where all family members can access your voice list.

For the parents:

3) Record your baby’s first words. Keep that precious moment forever; share it with loved ones via email.

4) Keep a digital diary of your children’s milestones such as turning over, sitting up, first steps and first tooth. These are treasures you can pass along to the kids so they can experience the excitement you felt watching them grow and develop.

5) If you’re traveling apart from the family it’s nice to record a special message or song for your child so they can feel close to you even when your miles and miles away. This may also be helpful for babysitters when the parents are away for the evening.

6) Record your child’s voice as they grow. Sometimes the audio experience of a moment is far more powerful than a picture. While you’re at it, just hand the recorder to the kids. You’ll be surprised how quickly a child goes into performance mode when given the opportunity. You’ll be able to refer to and enjoy these moments for years to come.

These are just a few of the many uses for digital voice recorders. If you have additional ideas you’d like to share with us we’d love to hear from you.
