If you use Microsoft Word then you may be aware of the Comment facility that lets you add helpful notes to your documents, but you may not have spotted a little extra facility Propellerhead has unearthed for embedding ‘spoken’ comments.
It’s really easy to do and all you need is a microphone connected to your PC. Open your document and click the mouse on the spot where you want the Comment to appear, now go to Insert > Comment and on the split frame toolbar that appears beneath your document, click the tape cassette icon. (In later versions of Word go to Insert > Comment and select Voice Comment from the drop-down menu). This opens the Windows Sound Recorder utility, click the Record button, say your piece and press Stop.
The voice comment will now appear in the document as a speaker icon or sound ‘object’ and clicking on it replays the recording. For hundreds more tips tweaks and some of the best freeware programs around visit PCTopTips
