Microsoft Updates OneNote for the Mac with the Most Requested Feature of All by Students: Audio Recording
Microsoft released OneNote for the Mac about a year ago. Since then Microsoft has delivered frequent improvements and new experiences that have made OneNote a top 10 free app in the Mac App Store. Continuing to make OneNote for Mac even better, Microsoft is introducing today an audio recording feature (see screenshot below) which is the most requested feature by Mac fans and especially students. It's just another powerful way to capture ideas and information into OneNote.
Microsoft notes "Picture this: You're sitting in class, frantically taking notes. Your teacher is moving through the material quickly, and despite your best efforts, you fall behind. 'Maybe it'll be fine,' you tell yourself. 'Maybe the 30 seconds I missed weren't that important.' Then your teacher utters those dreaded words, 'Remember what I just said because it'll be covered on your final exam.'
Starting today, you'll never have to go through that again—thanks to the new audio recording feature in OneNote for Mac. Next time you're taking notes, click Insert (see the graphic below), select Audio Recording and OneNote will start recording. It's that easy! Use OneNote to record meetings, conference calls, classes, interviews, focus groups, brainstorm sessions, personal journals and anything else you don't want to forget.
Recover Notes you Deleted Accidentally
A second great feature just added is that you can now recover deleted content. If you've ever accidentally deleted a section or page in OneNote and then wished you could get it back, then this feature is for you. Simply click the View tab and then select Deleted Notes to see everything you've deleted in the last 60 days. To restore a deleted section or page, Control-Click on it and then select Restore To.
You can get the update or OneNote for the first time at the App Store here.
