Voices from the past

4th April 2003 at 01:00
More and more schools are using oral history interviews to make sense of the past and it's immensely frustrating when recordings turn out to be blurred or inaudible. The East Midlands Oral History Archive has an excellent online guide to equipment. Taking into account both cost and convenience, it discusses cassette players, microphones, mini-disc players, computers and dictation machines, up to the latest DVD equipment. There is advice on how to make recordings compatible with those from others in the field, all ensuring that grandmother's memories can be preserved for posterity. www.le.ac.ukemohatrainingequipment.html
