How To Record Your Voice On To The Computer

Greg writes in with a software question

Question:
I want to record my own voice and record onto a CD that I can play on a CD player. What do I need to have and how do I do it?

Answer: All you would need is to have a microphone attached to your computer. You should have a microphone jack on the sound card on the back of your computer where the speakers plug in. Just look for the icon of a microphone. It will be a small jack just like the one used by the speakers.

There are software programs you can use to record your voice and edit it but you can also use the built in Windows sound recorder to do the same thing although its pretty basic. Go to Start, Programs, Entertainment, Sound Recorder to open it. Then just press the record button and talk into the microphone and press stop when you are done. Then you can save the recording to your hard drive.

To get the recording on to CD you will need some sort of CD burning software such as Roxio that will convert the .wav files from Sound Recorder to CD audio format. Roxio Record Now should allow you to record and burn your audio voice files.
