How to make a sound recording

You can easily make sound recordings on most laptops, tablets and mobile phones these days.

Before you start, you might want to print out our list of questions. You could even get a friend to ask you the questions.

  1. Open your Sound Recorder application (e.g. Sound Recorder on Windows PCs; QuickTime Player on Apple Macs).
  2. When you are ready, click Start Recording. We recommend recording in a quiet environment where you will not be disturbed.
  3. When you have finished, click Stop Recording.
  4. If possible, give your recording a filename (ideally this should be “your-name–liberating-histories.mp3“)
  5. Save your file.

When you are finished, send your sound file to us via file transfer.
