In fact, this AI tool helped us organize and resolve complex thoughts.

To briefly describe AudioPen's functionality, it is a handy AI tool that allows you to record audio and automatically create organized notes.

When I first started using AudioPen, I wondered if I really needed it, but after actually using it for a year, I couldn't let it go.

What is the AI voice memo tool "AudioPen"?

This article explains what AudioPen is.

AudioPenis a magical app that instantly turns what you talk about into organized written notes.

No more tedious note-taking or having to listen again later. Just speak and your words will turn into neatly organized notes.

If you're stuck on an "uh" or "ah," don't worry, AudioPen will organize the whole thing for you and create a memo that gets to the point.

It is super easy to use.Just open the app and talk about what you want to talk about.

AudioPen will do all the rest. It doesn't matter how you speak. It takes what you say and immediately turns it into easy-to-understand text.

This allows you to quickly voice record your ideas and preserve them in writing.

How to use AudioPen

It is easy to use.

  1. Press the record button.
  2. Speak into the microphone
  3. Select output language and writing style

Just do this and AudioPen will listen to what you say, accurately summarize the audio, and rewrite it into notes.

This section explains how to use AudioPen. First, press the Record button

Just talk into the microphone as if you were talking to a friend.

Recording is done with AudioPen. Japanese is available.

Record and press the stop button.

Press the Stop Recording button when you have finished recording.

Pressing this stop button will automatically create a memo.

Wait a couple of minutes.

All you have to do is sit in your chair, have a cup of coffee and wait. (You can also work on other tabs as long as you don't close the page.)

AudioPen is currently creating a transcription of what I recorded with AudioPen and organizing it and converting it into text notes!

A text memo was created in about a minute and a half.

This is the actual AudioPen generated text memo. The text is well summarized and organized.

What you speak into the microphone with AudioPen is automatically organized to create a summary memo.

Here is the actual generated text.

Hello, my name is Tsuyoshi Fujii. I would like to introduce myself.

I am a digital marketer and run a marketing agency, providing Internet marketing support mainly for English-speaking countries. In particular, I provide a lot of support for content marketing and advertising management, as well as consulting with clients on their strategies and providing and proposing specific tools.

We also run a blog and YouTube channel in Japan explaining marketing tools and software, and introduce information from the English-speaking world in an easy-to-understand manner. We carefully select and introduce only the most practical and reliable tools from among the many available in the market.

Recently, we have been focusing on proposing tools and software to busy entrepreneurs and marketers to improve their efficiency. For example, ChatGPT, which uses AI technology to generate high-quality text, is not enough.

Therefore, we propose to use RPA and automation tools to streamline routine and repetitive tasks. We believe this will improve the efficiency of not only text generation and image/video creation with AI, but also the efficiency of the entire business.

With the proliferation of AI technology and automation tools over the last year and into this year, automation is expected to become increasingly important in the future. Therefore, small business entrepreneurs and busy marketers are urged to incorporate automation tools early on.

We will continue to provide a variety of support services and be available to answer your questions and requests. Thank you in advance for your continued support.

You may be surprised by the audio notes above.

My name (Fujii Tsuyoshi) and specific names such as ChatGPT are also accurately transcribed.

Audiopen Features

AudioPen is a convenient application that anyone can use for free, with no need to register for an account or go through any complicated procedures. The free version alone can record for 3 minutes.

AudioPen is free and easy to use without registering an account.

In fact, three minutes of recording is sufficient.

If you need longer recordings, upgrade to the PRIME plan and you can record up to 15 minutes.

No registration is required, so you can experience the magic of voice memos right away.

Support for more than 40 languages!

And the great thing about AudioPen is that it supports over 40 languages.

AudioPen supports more than 40 languages, so of course Japanese is also supported, and audio input and output is no problem at all.

Of course, Japanese is also fully supported. You can freely choose the language in which you speak and the language into which the text is converted, so you can easily speak in Japanese and get English text.

You can create natural and understandable text in any language, just like a native speaker, so you can leave ideas and notes without any language barriers.

Audio file upload is also available [Prime members only].

This feature is also very useful.

AudioPen allows you to upload audio files and supports MP4 files as well as audio.

With AudioPen, you can not only record by speaking directly into the app, but you can also upload existing audio files such as mp3, mp4, mpeg, etc. and convert them to text.

This means that you can upload a previously recorded audio file and make notes without the hassle of recording your own voice each time.

Now you can easily preserve important content in writing, such as recordings of meetings and audio of lectures.

Rewriting function available [Prime members only].

AudioPen's special features are available only to Prime members.

You can also paste text directly into AudioPen and rewrite it. So if you already have a text file on hand, simply paste and rewrite it to organize it.

There is also an amazing feature that allows you to simply paste text you already have into AudioPen and it will turn it into an organized memo.

Unlimited customization of writing styles [Prime members only].

Another major benefit of the Prime membership is the ability to customize voice memos.

This allows users to set their own preferences for the length, tone, and writing style of the recorded voice when it is converted into a memo.

After creating a memo, press the icon in the upper left corner.

new featureManually Triggered Webhooks.It is. This is useful when you want to easily send notes you have created to other applications.

Webhook is a program on the Internet that receives data sent to it and automatically forwards it to other applications.

With this, you can send notes created with AudioPen to any application you want, whenever you want.

How to set up Webhooks

Audiopen Frequently Asked Questions

The following questions and answers are from the official Audiopen website.

However, web applications that can be used from a smartphone arethis way (direction close to the speaker or towards the speaker)You can download it from This web app allows you to use AudioPen from your smartphone without any problems.

If you are using an iPhone, here is a tutorial showing how to get AudioPen on your device.

Q. Can I upload audio files to AudioPen?

Possible if you are a Prime user.

AudioPen also allows you to upload audio files directly and rewrite their content. MP3 files are also supported.

You can upload up to 50 files per month. The maximum size of each file is 25 MB.

Q. Can I download the audio after recording?

This is possible if you are a Prime user. However, you can only download audio immediately after you create a note. And you can only download audio before saving the note to the library.

Although available only to Prime members, AudioPen also allows you to download the recorded audio after you have finished recording.

The audio of the memo is automatically deleted immediately after it is created, so it cannot be downloaded after it is saved in the library.

Q. Can I enter notes and have AudioPen summarize them?

Possible if you are a Prime user.

Press the pen icon in the lower right corner of the page (on the desktop).

It is possible to enter text and rewrite it with AudioPen.

A window will open in which you can enter text, and enter the text you wish to rewrite.

AudioPen is available in most of the world's languages. You can also click on the Settings button in the upper right corner to select from a list of languages to use.

Q. What is the difference between a folder and a tag?

A single memo can have multiple tags. However, a memo can only be in one folder.

As for memos created by AudioPen that are converted from recordings to text, they can be categorized by folders or tags.

Think of a folder as a higher level of organization than a tag.

Also, think of tags as a way to filter related memos in the library, especially when sharing multiple common topics.

Q. I recorded for a long time, but AudioPen could only transcribe the first part

The cause of this problem is a problem that occurs on the phone when the screen is in the off state.

AudioPen runs in the browser, and if the screen of most smartphones is turned off (even when the screen is dimmed), microphone access is blocked.

Q. Is there a money-back guarantee?

If you try the free version of AudioPen, you will see what it can do before purchasing the Prime version. For this reason, few people are likely to refund their money (in fact, so far few people have taken advantage of the money-back guarantee).
