Here’s how to e-mail MP3s and WAVs to Burli:
MP3 files, and PCM WAV files, can be e-mailed to email@example.com to appear in Burli’s in-queue (the newest ones should also appear in a filter on the left hand side of Burli). WAVs are better quality, but might not fit into an e-mail; MP3 should fit unless they’re particularly long.
Burli keeps these items for 10 days. Note that if you send anything to Burli this way, your e-mail address will be displayed with it (to all those using Burli via the university’s network).
Many devices record files which our version of Burli won’t import (e.g. M4A files), although you might still be able to use those files – first, see the info here. However, some smart phones and some free apps can record MP3 and WAV files (which Burli does accept); of course this involves all the usual cautions (e.g. keeping an eye on that app’s settings for how long items record for or are automatically deleted; being mindful of anything confidential being on phones and uploaded to cloud areas, etc.). If you’d like to use such apps though:
For iPads & iPhones: Voice Record Pro by Dayana Networks Ltd.
The app asks you to calibrate mic levels. After this:
• Tap the record icon (note that this doesn’t start the recording yet!) then under the Advanced tab, set the record format.
• Tap the record button to start, then the stop icon to finish recording.
• Use the “Send by Email” option. Select “Audio” and then “Email attachment”.
For Androids: Hi-Q MP3 Rec (also records WAVs) by Audiophile
Note: The free version of this app records for up to 10 minutes only.
• The recording format is shown in the top left (e.g. MP3). Tap this to change if desired, then tap the format you’d like.
• Tap the record button to start. Tap the stop icon to finish recording.
• Tap the music icon in the top left, to go to a list of your recordings.
• Tap your chosen recording, then tap Share / Send.
• Tap on your chosen e-mail application to e-mail the file.
