Oral tradition is of paramount importance when it comes to documenting our culture and history. The following are suggested tools that could be useful for preserving elements of traditions and knowledge that, unfortunately, are likely to disappear with the departure of our elders.
Types of devices
There are several types of devices for audio recording, some of which are much more affordable than others. If the budget allows it, the purchase of a voice recorder is strongly recommended, since this device obtains better audio quality and provides a wide range of recording. There are also applications for cell phones that can do the same thing. However, it is strongly suggested to perform quality tests, since the microphones of these devices are not necessarily adapted to audio recording. They can be very sensitive to surrounding noise.
