What is a Pen Voice Recorder and How Is It Useful?
Pen voice recorders are ordinary pens that can record voice and play the voice files back by getting connected to a personal computer via the USB port. These voice recorders can be used by doctors, lawyers and undercover agents. They can also be used to record conversations and reports on the go and, in some cases, can be used to record voices in an unobtrusive manner. It can also be used by students or by employees as an alternative to taking notes at lecturers or board meetings. Pen voice recorders can be easily clipped onto your jacket or shirt pocket and no one will suspect anything. These are also best suitable for journalists and undercover sleuths since these pen voice recorders can write and function like ordinary pens and can easily begin to record voices once they are activated.
