I'm wondering if there's a way to set Audition to record in voice-activated mode. Or if there's a way to do it in any other desktop app that the community knows about.
When I'm working on a project, I'd like to talk about the process and record it, but sometimes there'd be long delays before I speak. The best way to avoid those long silences would be to use voice activation.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
BTW, I just discovered that we have to use one of the topic titles as keywords IN our post, in order to be able to choose a topic. If there are no words in your post that also occur in the topics list, you won't be able to post. Might have been nice of Adobe to point that out. It would save some frustration.
I just found out that it's possible to record in voice-activated mode in Audacity (free, open-source software). You open the program, go to Preferences, put a check mark in the "Sound Activated" box, and close out the Preferences. No need to restart if you're on a Mac. But I think you have to if you're on Windows.
The default settings will allow you to record at a volume equaling the sound of a mouse-click, and higher. So you might need to raise the level that's required to record at, if you don't want a bunch of clicks recorded.
You don't need a word from the topic list actually in the title in order to post - you just have to select a topic. And no it doesn't have to be the right one either... see my test topic...
And no, Audition only has a timed record facility, not a voice-activated one.
