Question
Is it suitable for university lectures?
I'm wondering if this item would be suitable for recording university lectures? I'm unsure how close I would be able to get to my tutor, and she certainly wouldn't be speaking directly into the microphone. I would need the recording to be clear enough that I could take separate notes.

Thank you -
Jaz

Hi,

I have looked at the instructional manual for you and the Olympus DP-211 2GB Simple Dictaphone cannot be connected to a telephone via a wire to record a telephone conversation. This records by moving the Dictaphone to the source and press record.

Thank you for using Question and Answer.

Question
Is it any good for group discussion, where the dictaphone is put onto a table and not directly spoken into?
I need this to record conversations where there are 3 or more people.
We will not be speaking directly into the machine, it will be placed on a table or even left in a bag.
If this product is not suitable, perhaps you could recommend one that is.
