Re: Using Your iPhone for Recording

Just an update...I downloaded the free app Wavepad Audio Editor which is free and am using that to record as a .wav file. This time I am using the iphone headphones as my mic and can hold that to my mouth as needed. I can email shorter files or grab the files from my iphone (apps, file sharing) to s...

Re: ~[GROUP] - Robin Hood by Paul Creswick - gu

I cannot believe how much I struggled with this chapter! I hope this edit works, I not only struggled with the reading but with the editing. Note to self, Paul Creswick might be nice to read but not out loud, not for me! :) http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/gu/robinhood_05_paulcreswick.mp3 I ...

I had signed up for chapter five but am not going to be able to do it after all. But I did get some help with pronunciation if the future reader needs it viewtopic.php?f=23&t=35404

Re: Using Your iPhone for Recording

Also, when holding it in your hand, it will pick up any movement of your hand on the phone. You have to remain calm. lol. I always suggest some sort of stand. LOL, this is why I love it more than my headset. A LOT less noise than with my headset. I have a pretty lousy headset! I noticed a couple of...

Yes please, that website was helpful for Falchion because it is English, but they only had English at that site, no French. Thanks Nadine!

I am so glad everything the other tags were correct! YAY! :clap:

I will, thank you. I finished editing my first try at this last night and did...
