It has been over a year since Microsoft released OneNote for Mac and since then the company has been frequently releasing updates for the app to add new functionality, which helped OneNote become one of the top 10 free apps on the Mac App Store. Continuing with that mantra, Microsoft today released a new update for OneNote for Mac which brings the ability to add audio notes.
Microsoft says that this is one of the most frequently requested features by the community, particularly students, who want to have the ability to record and save audio notes in OneNote.
The updated app will also allow users to recover notes that they might have deleted accidently, and view equations created in OneNote for Windows.
Recording audio notes in the app is very easy, just click on Inset and select Audio Recording and the app will start recording. The app can be used to record meetings, conference calls, classes, interviews, what have you.
Any notes the user types while recording will automatically be synchronized to the audio, so users can open the context menu and do a Control-Click to select Play Audio From Here if they can’t quite figure out what the person was talking about when they typed that particular note. The Add Bookmark button can be used to flag an important point that the user might want to come back to later.
OneNote for Mac is available as a free download from the Mac App Store.
