Conversor, leaders in assistive technology, have released a series of updates for their SEN-friendly Notetalker solutions which will help teachers as well as pupils. Notetalker App, combined with a Universal microphone and cable kit for any smartphone or tablet, uses a simple user interface which allows the recording of classes. These developments have been made with CPD and working on identified weaknesses, such as after an Ofsted inspection. The range of Notetalker products is priced from £4.99 to £119.98.

Notetalker App, combined with a Universal microphone and cable kit for any smartphone or tablet, uses a simple user interface which allows students to record classes, with the added ability to tag important information with a bookmark or a text description. Notetalker Edit, the Windows and PC program for making notes, has enjoyed a wealth of new features, including Powerpoint upload, colour highlighting and moveable bookmarks.

“The Notetalker solution is ideal for SEN students who find it difficult to take notes at the same time as concentrating on what the teacher says,” said managing director Jeremy Brassington. “Notetalker aids comprehension by letting the app do the work in class.”

With these resources, students can upload recordings that contain books and stored images to Notetalker Edit software on a Mac or Windows PC. This editing software is designed with ease-of-use in mind, allowing learners to add detailed notes, add more bookmarks and images to give an audio, visual and text record of the lesson.

On top of this, teachers are able to use this technology to build on their professional development and fine-tune their lessons to perfection. This allows educators to take control of their growth, as they can use recordings to revise, alter future lessons and even gain opinions from busy colleagues.

Jeremy said: “Notetalker can be used by the teacher with their own mobile device to record the class. The recordings can be uploaded to Notetalker Edit for them to annotate and bookmark at key points where they want to improve or make changes to their presentation. It can also be used for peer group reviews to provide feedback and support for the teacher.”

During playback, pupils and teachers can add or delete bookmarks and photographs as they go, making it an ideal note-taking tool for both parties. Recording files can be managed just like on their PC so that they can quickly refer back to those important recordings. After the lesson, users can make notes using the audio recording, bookmarks and photographs on Notetalker Edit for Windows PC or Mac using Notetalker’s comprehensive text and image editor.

Aside from catering to students’ software needs, Conversor’s hardware includes a directional microphone and universal connector kit for iOS / Android devices. Notetalker Edit can now be downloaded for a free trial for 30 days.
