How to record sessions on iPhone and iPad?

For free, and not violate HIPAA

With Voice Memos, recording therapy sessions have never been easier. This app provides an easy-to-use interface for all Apple users (iPhone and iPad), with excellent audio quality. In the following article, we will help you use Voice Memos to record your sessions while also giving tips on how to position your device for a better recording experience.

Step 1: Voice Memos is built into all Apple devices. To locate it type in the search bar "Voice Memos".

Step 2: Before recording, set up your device at a maximum of 1.5m away from the patient and make sure that you place the device on a flat surface and that the device’s microphone(usually located on the left side of the lightning port) is not covered.

Step 3: Press the red button to start/stop recording. Note that the recording cannot be paused.

Step 4: All recordings are displayed on the home screen of the app. To export the recording or save it locally, press on the 3 dots. This would display a window with multiple options.

Hopefully, it was helpful!
