Audio voice recording

Answered Heather Dixon 8 months ago

Is there a way to record notes for each student using voice recording instead of typing?

Hi Heather,

Thank you for sharing your question and for choosing fastIEP. You can easily add a video recording with each event logged to document your notes as an audio file. Here is our FAQ: How do I add an annotation after adding an IEP event? for your review.

Please let us know if this will work for you or if you have a different idea for voice recording your notes.




Thank you for your reply. 

I do not think my question was clear. I want to be able to enter a note, but use my voice to record the note - not a video. Just like when you talk and send a text. Is there a way that option could be added? It would be much easier to say a note than type it for every student. 

Thanks again,


P.S. - I LOVE your product! It took me ages to find an IEP data tracker that I liked. I have recommended it to my school district!


Hi Heather,

I understand what you mean. When you dictate a text message on your phone, your speech is turned into text. You would like fastIEP to be able to do this for notes, is that correct?

If so, then this is possible if the device you are using supports voice typing. On iPads, you can use the Apple built-in voice typing feature. On Android tablets and Chromebooks, you can use the Google GBoard keyboard's built-in speech dictation feature (press the microphone icon).

For Windows computers, you can press the windows key plus the "h" key together to enter voice dictation.

If you let me know specifically which device you are using, I can create a quick video to show how this works.
