Woman recording

Using your own audio messages in combination with Audiopedia's content can be a good idea if you want to build a digital community outreach for your NGO. In combination with WhatsApp, it can become quite a powerful tool.

Creating your own voice recordings is less complicated than you might think. You don't need a recording studio or a professional speaker. It is enough to use your mobile phone to achieve a reasonable quality.

Here are some tips if you want to do a voice recording on your smartphone:

  • First, look for a voice recording app on your device. Look for apps labeled "Recorder," "Voice Recorder," "Memo," "Notes," etc.
  • If you can't find a voice recorder app installed on your device already, you can quickly install one from the Google Play Store.
  • Search the Play Store for "voice recorder" and browse through the list of results to find a free app that meets your needs.
  • Find the microphone. Usually it’s located on the bottom of the handset.
  • Point the phone’s microphone in the direction of the person speaking.
  • Make sure your hand isn’t covering the microphone.
  • Keep a reasonable distance between your mouth and the microphone.
