Best Practices – Voice+ Recorder

Given the new ‘Search’ capability, I now feel that the Notes field is better used as a keyword field.

Rather than typing a big long explanation of what the recording is, try to use keywords.

For example – say your child Bobby is sick and has a fever, you take him to the doctor and record the conversation. The doctor tells you that Bobby has the measles and gives you specific instructions on how to deal with it.

So, your keywords might be

Doctor, fever, measles, Bobby

Then using the search function, you can search for any combination of those keywords.

Keep in mind that this search capability is case insensitive, so the keywords of Doctor, doctor, DoCtOr are all equivalent. Search also allows multiple keywords separated by space, so you can search for ‘doctor knee’ to isolate recordings that have both keywords.

If you have several recordings related to Bobby, and others for other family members Doctor’s visits, then if you searched for ‘Doctor’ you would get a list of all recordings that have that as a keyword.

But if you search for ‘Doctor Bobby’, you would only find recordings that contained both words.

Say Bobby is the daredevil type and you constantly take him to the Doctor and record the visits, so you now have many recordings that contain the keywords ‘Doctor’ and ‘Bobby’, just add more search terms to drill down into the list – say search for ‘Doctor Bobby measles’ or ‘Doctor Bobby knee’, etc, etc
