Making A Recording

Multiple Options

There are many ways to send audio files to us, and we have provided preferred examples below. We have divided it up according devices and how to record on each.

For a number of reasons, we prefer the vocaroo.com option if at all possible (not available on Apple products). However, a simple attachment will work if necessary.

Once you get started with the recording process, you’ll see how one step leads to the next. If there is anything that is unclear, let us know and we’ll help you find the easiest way to send in a recording.

Desktops & Laptops

If you’re using a desktop or laptop, you may need to use an external microphone. There’s no need for an expensive microphone, just make sure it can plug directly into the microphone jack on your computer.

Method 1 (Preferred)

  1. Make a recording on your computer
    • A voice recorder or sound recorder program may already be installed on your computer (see video below)
    • Other free recording software you can download include Audacity and QuickTime
  2. Save file to desktop (so it’s easy to find)
  3. Open vocaroo.com/?upload
  4. Select “Click to Upload”
  5. Find file on desktop
  6. Select and upload
  7. Copy and paste link that was just created into your email
  8. Send to [email protected]
  9. Congratulations, you’re done!

Method 2

  1. Make recording on your computer
  2. Save the file to the desktop
  3. Open your email
  4. Attach audio file to the email
  5. Send to [email protected]
  6. Congratulations, you’re done!
Email Use
Please do not use the email icon to send the recording through vocaroo. Instead (as mentioned above) please copy and past the link into an email. If the email button or icon is used, we will not be able to identify who sent the email. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
