Abstract

This article describes a voice recording system that selects recording quality and compresses the recorded data in order to make it possible to continue recording when the remaining storage becomes low. This reduces user's extra effort to reserve space for new recordings such as deleting older or unnecessary data.

Voice Recording Data Compression When Remaining Storage Becomes Low

   This article describes a voice recording system that
selects recording quality and compresses the recorded data in order
to make it possible to continue recording when the remaining storage
becomes low.  This reduces user's extra effort to reserve space for
new recordings such as deleting older or unnecessary data.

   The recording program selects a sampling rate by detecting
the remaining storage.  If the program decides there is not enough
storage, a lower sampling rate is used.  If the remaining storage
becomes critically low during recording, the sampling rate is
changed to even lower rate.

   The program allows users to specify the importance of the
recorded data as well as adding the recorded date/time or user's
comment.  During low storage, the program compresses the recorded
data according to the importance settings or recorded date/time.

   The compressed data is not limited to voice data.  Any
digital sound recording or digital video recording are also
applicable.
