A is for Audacity

Need to record students reading?  Need to record a podcast?  Want to archive a class song?  Then check out Audacity, a free utility that allows you to record sound, edit it, and save it as a mp3.

You can download Audacity (a free program) here.

If you want to save files as MP3s, you will also need to download the Lame encoder here.  When you save your file as a MP3 the first time, follow the directions to install the Lame encoder.

There’s a pretty simple Handout to follow on the ITRT site.

And of course, if you need help, let me know!
