Which Is Best To Preserve Voice For Future Use?
Posted 10 December 2011 - 06:57 AM
I'm glad to have found this forum. I'm hoping someone may have some suggestions for me, as I have no expertise in this field.
I have an 8yr old son with a progressive nuerodegenerative disorder. I know his vocal chords will eventually become paralyzed in about five years. I am trying to preserve his voice by recording it in hopes that it may be used with other technologies to help him communicate in the future. I want to be able to capture our normal conversations in the car, at home ...etc. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you

I just read your post from 2011 and wish to comment. As a contributor to The Library of Congress - Veterans History Project I know the following. They require us to submit CD's or DVD's depending on the size of the contribution. Those discs can have no marks on them or labels, so mark the container NOT the disc. We also have digital audio format requirements which may or may not apply to attaining your goal of future therapy for your son. They require files in WAV format at as high a degree of resolution as you can afford. My recorder a, Zoom H1, is very adequate to the task and costs around $100. It comes with a 2GM Micro Card which is less than an hour but you can download and start over. Most any USB cable for a camera will allow you to hook up and download to your hearts content and reuse your chip at will.
I hope this helps you both and Happy Veterans Day 2012, Jim.
P.S. How is your son today?
