    Voice recording software

    I'm looking for some free software so a laptop can be used as a dictaphone that's as easy as Windows Sound Recorder (or as near as) but that will record straight to MP3. I've tried Audacity which does work but needs plug ins and is a little complicated. I need to be able to explain to someone else how to use it when I'm not there.

    Can anyone save me ages downloading and testing bits of software?

    Cheers.

    Surprised you're not keen on Audacity - all you need to do is to place the LAME dll somewhere and let Audacity know where it is. After that it's so straightforward that all the teachers at my schools can use it.

    You can also use the portable version of audacity so it can be preconfigured as well (with the plugins you require)
