An exciting package arrived on my desk this morning – a USB tape machine. Basically this allows you to transfer audio cassettes into a digital format on your computer. A lifesaver for multi-VAs who have clients who still insist on sending in cassettes. All you need to do is convert it to an MP3 and ping it out to your associates to type – thus making sure the audio remains secure and you can even send a copy back to the client too.
My first client to use this is transferring stories which his grandmother wrote and recorded for him as a child to MP3 to play to his own child – what a lovely idea!
