“Digitizing and Transcribing Audio Recordings”
Donald R. Snow
Many of us have analog recordings that need digitizing and transcribing, tapes and records, for example. In digital format they are much easier to edit, copy, transcribe, and distribute. We will discuss the types of old recordings and how to digitize them yourself. Tapes, in particular, should be digitized as soon as possible, since they deteriorate and become unplayable. In digital format copies can be made without loss of quality, unlike duplicating a tape. The notes for this class and related articles, all with active internet links, are posted on http://uvpafug.org/blog/classes/dons/dons-classes.html.
