For free, and not violate HIPAA

Searching for a good audio recording of your online therapy sessions application for Windows? Look no further. I believe I have found you one. Bandicam is easy to use and offers good audio quality and free audio recordings, so there is no need for you to enroll in any subscription. This article will show you how you can use Bandicam to record your sessions and save them locally on your computer.

Step 1: Download & Install Bandicam As BandiCam isn’t built into the Windows system, the first step is to download it. The link for the download is provided right here https://www.bandicam.com/downloads/ After clicking on the link be redirected to the following page:

Press on the blue button that states “Download Bandicam” and then after downloading the extension, follow the step-by-step wizard guide to install the software.

Step 2: Open Bandicam After downloading and installing, open the BandiCam software, from your desktop or installation folder, the User Interface will appear.

Step 3: Set Bandicam to "Audio only"

Set Bandicam to record only audio as shown in the picture below.

Note: The free version allows up to 24hrs of Audio-only recordings. Recording video or screen recorder has a limit of 10mins for the free version.

Step 4: Set up your audio devices To set up BandiCam to record both the client's voice during a session (system sound) and your voice (Mic), set both your speakers and microphone to "(Default Output device)" and "(Default Input device)" respectively.

Step 4: Record your session

Click the Rec button or press the F12 key to start/stop the recording.

Tip: Mute during audio recording

If you click on the speaker or microphone icon on the Bandicam window while recording audio, the sound will be muted and not recorded.

Step 5: Opening the recording folder Click on the folder icon or go to ‘Home > Audios’ to view the folder where your recordings are stored.

What is next?

After recording your session, the next step is to upload the recording to Mentalyc for it to generate a progress note. Click on the link for a step-by-step guide.
