    Record Lectures with a Mac?
    I saw this girl taking notes with Microsoft Word with the feature that makes it look like a notebook in my bioethics class. I also saw that her macbook pro was recording the lecture too!!! with the computer!
    can all macs do that? or did she buy something fancy??? is it only mb pro?

    You can do this with iMovie using your built in iSight camera, so should work on your Macbook too.

    Has anyone tried using the iMac to record calls on a nearby speakerphone?

    Are you allowed to record without their permission?

    She bought Microsoft Word. 2004 and 2008 both have this feature.

    No, but if you're paying to take the class, the professor is obligated to allow you to record it, as long as you don't try to sell the recording later or something. College students have been doing this for years with cassette players (and before that, the ones who could write quickly did it in a simpler fashion.)

    yes of course you are!!

    You just have to use it for personal purposes and I guess not charge anyone for the information.

    From the view menu go to notebook layout. You can then click on the audio notes button from the toolbar and click on then click on the record button…

    ill tell you what this is my the first time that i have had a laptop and used it for school. But taking notes is like a breeze now. I can pretty much type as fast as my professor talks so i never miss anything! Im the guy telling other people what he said cause they didn't get everything

    Voice recognition on a Mac isn't always that great when you're using the built in mic. I suggest that you get a cheap headset or something of that sort.

    Press any key to continue, or any other key to cancel.

    There are 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who understand binary
    and those who don't.
