Getting Started

What's needed:

  • Laptop or desktop computer (reasonable new model)
  • USB microphone headset
    This is the best option, because:
    • It maintains a constant distance between your mouth and the microphone
    • Most computers produce poor sound recordings without a separate microphone
    • A headset microphone is less likely to pick up ambient (external) noise

Please don't use a desktop or built-in microphone as the audio quality will not be acceptable

  • Wi-fi that works well
  • Google Chrome that's installed on the computer
  • A quiet room
  • Time to set aside to do the recordings
