Other Comments

A “feature-rich” recording app has now been made very user-friendly with VoiceOver. The name of the app is “HT Professional Recorder”. There are separate versions for the Ipad and for the Iphone or Ipod. If you purchase either one of the apps, it will be $6.99; if you pur- chase a second version of the application, it will be $3.99. The seller is “Applied Voices, LLC”, and the developer is Andrew Berlin. Once you have used this app, you will wonder how you ever lived without it. Some of the out- standing features of the app – but by no means all of them – are:  The ability to name files and folders.  The ability to move files between folders.  List all files without folder names in one list.  Compress files individually or compress a folder all at one time. (I have found there is no degradation of sound quality by compressing files.)  3 levels of mic gain are available to suit your recording needs. Whether you are dictating a note to yourself in a crowded, noisy room or recording in a large classroom, there is a setting to meet your needs.  Cut, copy, trim, & paste editing tools are amongst some of the most valuable and unusual features in this app. It is so nice to be able to record over part of a record- ing you don’t want. The ability to append to the end of a recording - like the most important sack of candy you left off your grocery list – becomes pretty valuable.  There is also a feature that allows you to bookmark your recordings so you can find special points of interest that you may want to reference in the future.  Speed up and slow down the playback speed of your recordings.  Skip ahead or go back 5 seconds at a time, while playing a recording.  Music recording at a sample rate of 44,100 kHz. The easiest way to read the manual is to either open it up in “Voice Dream Reader” or “IBooks”. The developer of the app, who, by the way, prefers to go by “Andy”, has been most patient and helpful to get the app compatible with VoiceOver. I’m sure as other VoiceOver users use HT Professional Recorder, they will find other suggestions. Andy will do his best to accommodate your ideas in future updates. To contact him, you may e-mail him from your app at: To e-mail him from the app, go to “More Choices” on the menu, and then choose “Report a problem”. I found this app to be one of the most useful in my arsenal of tools that I use on my IOS devices. It’s right up there with Voice Dream , Kindle, NLS, and Seeing Eye GPS . I hope you will find HT Professional Recorder as valuable and helpful on a daily basis as I have. Thanks to Andrew Berlin for all his hard work in making HT Professional Recorder user-friendly for VoiceOver users. This is my first posting to AppleVis. Please excuse any errors.

Very good job on the first post you did. I would not have been able to tell

I do have one question though. What is the difference between this and rev voice recorder. as some of the feature ssound the same. It is good to have more then one tool for the job in case one craps out but yeah.

Take care.

Wha'ts new:

Corrects a problem with playback of long files. Includes all the great features of previous versions including

  • DROPBOX transfer,
  • Emailing of very long recordings in multiple segments, and
  • automatic skipping of silence.

there are two unlabelled buttons which has been demonstrated in the podcast posted today.also I just looked at rev voice recorder and it sounds like this app is aimed at those wanting transcription services, so useful for meetings lectures etc I guess, that app is also free unlike this one, but if you want transcriptions from the other app you have to pay for it.

Having used this app for a few minutes I'm very impressed. It sounds like simple mic before it went by by. I don't really understand the email in segments though. I'm still a bit confused by this but maybe I'll figure it out. I did not see any refverence to it in the well written user manual which btw works in voice dream.

Take care.

I purchased this app this morning, and played with it for a few minutes, and I am very impressed. This has just about everything I would need in a recording app: editing features, ability to append to the recording, ability to send to dropbox, skip silence feature. It is very accessible with voiceover. It would be great if the developer could add an option to convert the wav files to mp3 in a future update. I think this app is well worth the $7!

Actually mp3 is a no go because of the expensive pattent. he woudl have to raise the price in order to cover the lame mp3 pattent.

It hasn't been updated for two years and now when I launch it, I'm getting a message saying that it might slow down my phone and that the developer needs to update it to improve compatibility. It still works fine, but I like this app and it would be a shame if it was no longer being supported. Looking at this developer's other apps, they've got some that haven't been updated since 2010 and none have been updated after 2014, so I hope they haven't stopped making apps.

I used to have goldwave on my old computer, and I could record streams from the internet. Can I do this on my phone? How do I do this? Thanks in advance.
