The internal microphone is automatically disabled.

Once the external microphone is connected, the recording process is the same as with the built-in microphone. For more information, see

“Recording sounds” on page 143 .

Using an expansion device

The expansion port allows you to connect your computer to an expansion device, which is an excellent investment if you’re using your computer both in and out of the office.

When you return to your desk, you probably want to connect to your network, print reports from your computer, or use a mouse instead of the AccuPoint II. Connecting cables for each of these devices every time you return to the office is time-consuming and inconvenient.

With an expansion device, you can leave external devices connected while you are using your computer away from your desk. When you return, you can quickly connect your computer and have immediate access to all the devices.
