Microsoft updates OneNote for Mac with Audio Recording support and more. Continuing to make OneNote for Mac even better, today Microsoft introduces audio recording-one of the most frequently requested features by OneNote for Mac fans (especially students), and another powerful way to capture ideas and information into OneNote-plus the ability to recover notes you deleted accidentally and view equations created in OneNote for Windows.

Picture this: You're sitting in class, frantically taking notes. Your teacher is moving through the material quickly, and despite your best efforts, you fall behind. "Maybe it’ll be fine," you tell yourself. "Maybe the 30 seconds I missed weren't that important." Then your teacher utters those dreaded words, "Remember what I just said because it'll be covered on your final exam."

Starting today, you'll never have to go through that again-thanks to the new audio recording feature in OneNote for Mac. Next time you're taking notes, click Insert, select Audio Recording and OneNote will start recording. It's that easy! Use OneNote to record meetings, conference calls, classes, interviews, focus groups, brainstorm sessions, personal journals and anything else you don't want to forget.

Even better, any notes you type while recording will be synchronized to the audio. Reviewing your class notes and can't remember exactly what your instructor said about the early music of the Beatles? Move your mouse over the notes you typed when the instructor was talking about that topic, then Control-Click to open the context menu and select Play Audio From Here. OneNote will play the audio that was recorded precisely when you typed that portion of your notes. Pretty handy!

Don't want to type a bunch of notes during your audio recording? Click the Add Bookmark button on the Audio tab to quickly flag an important point for later reference. Just like with text you've typed, you can Control-Click and select the Play Audio From Here command to play the audio recording from the point where you placed the bookmark.

Here's one last tip for making the most of audio recording in OneNote for Mac: Sit close to the person you're recording so the microphone on your Mac will pick up the sounds more clearly. The level indicator on the Audio tab can help you determine whether the audio you're recording is too faint. This is especially useful when recording in a large, open environment like a lecture hall.

In addition to Record Audio, here are some additional updates Microsoft included in this OneNote for Mac release.

View mathematical equations created in OneNote for Windows
Microsoft addressed another popular customer request by providing the ability to view equations added from OneNote for Windows. Simply open a page that includes equations and you'll see those mathematical symbols and Greek letters rendered in all their glory.

Recover notes you deleted accidentally
Microsoft made it possible to recover deleted content. If you've ever accidentally deleted a section or page in OneNote and then wished you could get it back, then this feature is for you. Simply click the View tab and then select Deleted Notes to see everything you've deleted in the last 60 days. To restore a deleted section or page, Control-Click on it and then select Restore To.

What's new in v15.10
+ Audio Recording & Playback - This has been a very popular feature request from our users, and particularly from students! OneNote now allows you to record & play back audio, which is perfect for class lectures or meetings. You can even create bookmarks in a recording, so it's easy to jump directly to the most important parts!
+ Searchable Handwriting - Handwriting in OneNote is awesome for taking notes, sketching out ideas, and brainstorming for your next project. Now, we've made all your handwritten content automatically searchable. Sheets of paper never felt so behind the times.
+ Equations - This has been a popular request, and we're excited to say that you can now view any equations you've added to OneNote from other devices!
+ Deleted Notes - We know you didn't really mean to delete your homework. We've now made it possible to fetch it out of the Deleted Notes.
