Sound recording

Post by AriSilva » January 27th, 2022, 1:09 pm

I did not have a look (yet) at the 7.7 version.
Do we have a possibility of recording any observations that the interviewer might have about the interview, or specifically about a question?

Hi Ary,
What do you want exactly with sound recording?\

I think that, the existing CSPro logic recording functions are enough powerful for any user to implement complicated sound recording scenarios.
If your need further, the CSPro-JS interface give us near infinite way to design more advanced recording task on both OS, Windows and Android.
For your help, please read:

Here's a link to CSPro's audio features: https://www.csprousers.org/help/CSPro/audio.html

They're all controlled from logic, but there are two modes (background and interactive).

Thank you for your replies on the recording subject.
I confess my total lack of knowledge about this sound object, and I think it solves our needs.
The idea is to give the interviewer the possibility to record his/her observations about an interview, instead (or on top) of having to write it in a field in the form. We were thinking mainly to use that in the pilots, where we need to catch the interviewer´s experience with the questionnaire that is being tested.
But we are thinking also in recording some of the answers from the respondent, to see that if, in fact, s/he answered the question, and it was not invented by the interviewer.
If you can think of any other ways to use the sound recording to improve the survey´s quality, please, feel free to comment on that.

I understood that this audio object only works on Androids, but is this audio record file playable on Windows?
The idea is for the central office to be able to listen to those audio files recorded during the interviews.

Yes, you can play the audio on Windows. Even if you're just using Windows Media Player, you can play the .m4a format: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/top ... 96f74375d9
