Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note

While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:

  1. Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.

Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.

Please Take the TidBITS 2007 Reader Survey!

Send Article to a Friend

It has been many years since we've done a reader survey, but since we're in the middle of some major infrastructure and site redesign work, I'd like to learn more about who you are, what you do, how you acquire technology information, what you think of our content, and most important, what you would like to see more of in TidBITS.

So I would greatly appreciate it if you could spare 5 minutes to fill out our TidBITS 2007 Reader Survey. For those who complete it, we have a small token of our appreciation at the end, but I'm sorry to say that we weren't able to get that shipment of iPhones in time.

I'll share results from the survey in TidBITS as we get a chance to evaluate them. Thanks in advance for your time!
