Sonocent app and audio notetaker

I have made an 8 minute video of the above app and software to go on my dyslexia youtube channel. Please share this as I think its a wonderfully practical app in the right circumstances. Encouraging active listening and could be used in a wide range of contexts to make recording easier. On digital
learning day this is something worth looking into!
