When configured properly, the HP Jornada can be used to make voice recordings that can be played back on another PDA or any Windows-based PC equipped with a sound card and speakers.
HP Jornada 520, 540, and 560 Series PDA - Recording Voice in PC-compatible Format
Configuring the PDA to record in PC-compatible format
To configure the HP Jornada to record in a PC-compatible format, follow the steps below:
Select Start, Settings, Input and then the Options tab.
Tap on the Voice recording format drop-down menu.
Change the setting to any of the PCM or GSM options. (See note below.)
Tap OK to save the changes and close the Input Options window.
note:As a general rule, selecting a higher Hz value increases the recording quality but also increases the amount of memory required to store the voice recording. Of the two PC-compatible formats, PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) provides better audio quality than GSM (Groupe Spécial Mobile).
Now when a file is recorded it can be played on any pocket PC, or on any Windows-based PC equipped with a sound card and speakers.
Creating a recording
To use the HP Jornada to record in a PC-compatible format, follow the steps below:
Press and hold the VOICE RECORDING button on the side of the HP Jornada. The indicator light (at the top of the HP Jornada) will illuminate orange and there will be a single beep.
Hold the device approximately 12 inches from your mouth and speak into the microphone, which is located approximately 1 inch above the VOICE RECORDING button.
When finished recording the message, release the VOICE RECORDING button. The HP Jornada will beep twice to indicate that it has successfully recorded the message.
Since pressing the VOICE RECORDING button activated the Notes application, visually confirm that the voice recording was successfully saved by finding the file on the list stamped with the current time.
