Tim, Using recorder for interviews

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The dictaphone recorded well, played back clearly and I could easily transfer the sound file onto my computer where I could easily listen to it on software.
Bad points:
I am not aware that the dictaphone permits editing of files. That will be a bonus if I find that it does.
