    Is there a way to talk repeated notes into a OneNote folder -- where the words are transcribed ... not saved as an audio file.

    Noticed that Cortana can take a quick note -- and she creates a OneNote file -- where she transcribes the one statement AND records the audio. But would like to add to that -- with notes.

    Here's the scenario. I'd like to open a OneNote called "grocery shopping" and say "milk," and then OneNote transcribes it. Then, a second or two later say "bread" and One Note transcribes it - adding it to the list.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks!

    why not just take one long voice note in one note, then transcribe the whole thing?
    I see what the OP is after. Looks in fridge. Sees they need milk. Make a note. Sees they need eggs. Make a note. Checks the cheese, good there. Checks the yogurt, need some. Make a note.

    The OP doesn't want 50 separate notes to buy 50 items on a weekly shopping trip. And with "Cortana take a note" any pause in speaking and the note is wrapped up and put away.


    In Windows 10 Mobile there is a voice input button on the keyboard. Open OneNote > tap mic > state item > tap mike > tap enter for next line

    Best of all, if you turn on checklist it persists through the process and you get the check box on each line...

    You could use the speech recognition built into Windows but that's like using a flamethrower to kill a mosquito :/

    Didn't discover it myself until the question came up.

    In WM 8.1 I was able to record audio notes within OneNote, but now in WM 10 it doesn't appear that I can do this. If I tap the microphone icon... the longest I can record is less than 5 seconds. It seems now if I want to save an audio note, I first have to record in Voice recorder then attach the audio file into my note in OneNote.

    Yeah, using OneNote for this on a mobile device works well, even on Android. What about on my desktop OneNote, though? Seems bass ackwards that Microsoft would allow a powerful feature like that in the mobile app and leave it out of the full-blown desktop program. Maybe I'm not seeing how to do it.
