Audio Notetaker

Instead of the single stream of information you get with standard audio, Audio Notetaker splits your recording up into individual phrases and displays them on screen as a bar. You can then organize these bars by color coding great sections and removing not so great sections. You can add meaning to these bars, annotating them and importing PowerPoint or PDF slides to create comprehensive and meaningful notes.
