Simple Mode is perfect for beginners, as it shows only the necessary information in a large font and only key functions in the menu. The first time the recorder is activated, users are asked to choose from either Normal Mode or Simple Mode, so initial set up is easy. Once you become accustomed to using the recorder, you can switch to normal mode should you desire more detailed information and settings.
The built-in USB connector can be easily deployed and stored using the slide lever. With this feature, you can connect directly to a computer without using a cable or a software. Not only can you save and share your recordings, the WS-853 can also be recharged via USB without having to remove the battery, and the recorder can also be used as a USB memory device.
By simply selecting a scene from the menu, you can set optimum recording settings for your environment. 'Telephone Recording' and 'Duplication' have been added as options that are available when the recorder is used in combination with accessories. It is now possible to easily record telephone conversations or duplicate recordings from cassette tapes.
This scene enables you to easily and conveniently digitise and save sound sources from vinyl records and analogue cassette tapes. Auto divide mode will divide files into individual songs. In addition, timer mode will stop recording automatically if you set a time that matches the duration of the sound source.
Audio files stored on the recorder are automatically organised by date. Because files are displayed in a calendar format, you can quickly find the file you are looking for by the date of recording. If you're looking for a voice recorder with good search features, this is the one for you.
Recordings of long meetings with multiple topics or audio files that are too big to send via email can be divided on the recorder without having to use a computer. This makes it easier to manage files according to the content, or divide files into a smaller size to send via email.
The recorder is equipped with a convenient stand on the rear of the body. This feature reduces unwanted noise that can be picked up from the surface when the recorder is placed directly on a table top, and can be folded neatly into the body when not in use.
The recorder includes a micro SD card slot that is compatible with Micro SD cards up to 32 GB. You can select whether to use the built-in memory or a micro SD card from the menu.
The recorder is equipped with a dedicated sliding cover linked with the USB connector that protects the connector from dust.
By developing low power consumption circuits, battery life of the recorder has been significantly increased. Users can rely on the recorder even when using it for long periods of time. The supplied AAA battery is rechargeable and can be charged via USB without being removed from the recorder, making it very convenient for everyday use. The recorder can also run on general purpose AAA batteries, so you never have to worry about running out of power when out and about.
