The handy index function lets you mark a particular

Pop it in your pocket or bag and take it anywhere. The
durable casing and attractive, ergonomic design will
make you want to carry it everywhere you go.
Voice-activated recording
When enabled, recording will start automatically when
you start speaking. Recordings stop automatically after
you stop speaking and restart automatically when you
start speaking again. No words are lost

microphones. Recording sensitivity is increased (picks
up more voice signal) without compromising sound

remind you of important meetings, events or telephone
Extra large backlit LCD
The large graphical display lets you view all important
file information at a glance, thanks to the backlit
display, even in poor lighting conditions.

can be powered through a USB port. Connect the USB
cable from a computer to the Digital Voice Tracer, and
