What is File and Edit?

Machines with File and Edit capabilities, known as Professional Voice Recorders, will allow you to record a file and then rewind back to a particular point in the recording to either:

INSERT - Add audio at a particular point without deleting any previous audio that has been recorded.

(e.g. adding the date to the beginning of a report without effecting any previous recording).


Add audio at a particular point, thus deleting any audio that was recorded previously.

(e.g. deleting a particular word or phrase by recording a new one, for use with making corrections.)

File and edit capabilities are a must-have for any professional when recording letters, reports or taking notes in a professional environment.

Recorders without File and Edit

A machine without File & Edit capabilities is known as a Note Taker.

These machines are ideal for recording blocks of audio such as meetings and interviews and even lectures.

However, be careful as once you record a file you cannot re-enter and edit any of the audio.

You can only pause a recording, but every time you stop recording, you will begin a new file. This means that you cannot rewind and overwrite an error.

If you do not require file and edit, here is a list of all our professional solutions that DO NOT include file and edit functionality: CLICK HERE.
