I recently acquired the Eltrinex V12Pro Talking Digital Recorder. As a Blind person who has used hand-held digital recording devices of one form or another for more than two decades--from the VoiceIt digital recorder (which held three minutes of recorded information) to the talking Olympus DM-620 digital recorders--I want to tell you that the Eltrinex V12Pro is by far the most nonvisually-accessible and versatile digital recorder ever to be introduced to the Blind community. Before the introduction of the Eltrinex V12Pro, three things always troubled me about the digital recorders on the market. First, most of them did not have any voice guidance. This meant that a Blind person couldn't perform many configuration tasks independently. This also meant that the more complicated command sequences to operate the recorder had to be memorized. Secondly, for the overwhelming majority of digital recorders, once a person finished a recording, the audio file could be played or deleted but never changed. Only the Sony digital recorder (which did not have voice guidance) had the ability to add to an existing recording when it was finished. Finally, while I was glad to find Olympus digital recorders with voice guidance, I was disappointed that I could not independently set the date and time. Now consider the Eltrinex V12Pro, the most recent digital recoerder I know about the enter the market. Every single menu and setting is verbalized with its voice guidance system. A Blind person can even set the date and time and can specify whether the time is specified using a 12-hour or a 24-hour clock. In addition, for each recording that is created, it is possible to add information to the beginning of the recording (referred to as a label) or to the end of the recording (appending to the original recording).
I don't typically openly rave, but I finally got my hands on my Eltrenix talking voice recorder today. This is the recorder I feel that I personally and our agency has been looking for forever. The description doesn't even do it justice. There is a micro SD card slot on the top. A hardware switch on one side for meeting and interview, and one on the other side to lock the keyboard. Wind screens are included for the excellent angled stereo microphones, and there is an external microphone jack. The ability to index and edit recordings, the loudness of the onboard speaker, the clarity of the voice, the editing and indexing capabilities, expandable memory, and the excellent voice guidance right down to verbal numbering of the recordings, all make this hands down much better than the Olympus comparable options. You can use it as a simple recorder, or get really deep with advanced features. The only thing that would be nice is if they had included a case and a rechargeable battery, but battery life is good, and using lithium AAA batteries it should last a very long time.
