Recording sound directly into a Word file

Something that I often show people at training events, that is very easy but effective, is the ability to record sound directly into a Word file. Which if you are marking work that has been submitted electronically, this is brilliant as it is much easier to give feedback verbally than to try typing feedback into comments boxes in Word, or speech bubbles or as text where you then change the colour. It is much quicker for the person marking, and various studies on the use of audio for feedback, have suggested that most learners prefer it.

Some notes on how to do this, including an example of how it works, can be found at http://www.a6training.co.uk/resources/HowToRecordSoundIntoWord.doc
