Using your smartphone
Smartphone apps such as Voice memos on Apple iOS devices can transform your smartphone or tablet into a dicta-phone.
There are also plenty of accessible note-taking apps. Google Keep is available across Apple iOS and Google Android devices and contains text and voice recording features. The Apple Notes app is available on their phones, tablets and computers. Many other professional note-taking apps such as Drafts provide more advanced formatting and organising features while some including ClaroSpeak can convert text into audio.
