  Hello, did you happen to read Curtis Chong’s review of the digital 
recorder that he offered in the February braille monitoring? If you’re 
using an iPhone the voice memos feature, which is in fact a digital 
recorder works well for most things. Also what kind of quality are you 
looking for? If you’re trying to record actualities, you don’t need 
musician quality recordings.

Many moons ago, African term here. I did radio reporting in high school 
or a publicly supported radio station. I did most of my work on a boom 
box and an off-the-shelf recorder. I do realize those days are long 
gone. But to record actualities, even just getting a microphone for the 
Victor reader stream truck, which in fact also is a digital recorder can 
also be a potential use. So there really are options. You just have to 
think outside of the box  Occasionally.

I hope these comments are helpful?

These days I am deaf blind so I have course him studying American sign 
language. I have not done anything that looks like journalism in a very 
long time. And I very occasionally have to record things for hearing 
friends who have asked me a question. And the best way for the 
individual in that circumstance is too record something for them. Be 

Sincerely Maurice Mines.
