Audio Recording in MS Word on a Mac

This is something that I have recently discovered to be not only very valuable for a lot of ways with students, but also a cool trick that not many people know about, especially those who are new to Macs.

In Microsoft Word, on a Mac, in Notebook view, you can record audio and save the files with the audio included. I have introduced this to language teachers, ESL teachers and the reading specialists of my district. They absolutely LOVE it!

  1. I did know this, but keep forgetting to remind my teachers to show students.
    Thanks for the great direction sheet. I plan to share this with the teachers at my school. I’d love to start a list of ways this tool can be used. I thought of fluency practice, having students read what they wrote and listen back to see how they can improve it. Great for pronunciation practice, foreign language, and ELL.
