Using a voice recorder to get organized

A voice recorder may assist with many tasks including: managing medical appointments, daily to - do lists, reminders, social calendars, phone numbers, addresses, recording meetings, or prescription instructions. For example, a patient can dictate a grocery list while at home to use in the supermarket.  Recordings can be accessed easily to allow one section for groceries another for appointments and a third for phone numbers. The operating buttons can be marked with raised, brightly colored bump dots to make identifying the start and stop buttons easier.

Digital voice recorders can cost as little at $40.  They make a great birthday and holiday gift. for family members.  The beauty of the voice recorders is that it is a simple, but powerful, tool that can keep patients organized.
