I too have an apple phone. What I do is record myself in audio copy, which can be downloaded from the AppStore. Then, share it to Soundcloud. From there, you can copy and paste into the forum. I’m still trying to figure out exactly how to do that… I keep loosing things and accidentally pasting my recordings in random places
Yes, this seems to work quite well for people with iPhones.
The secret is not to try and record within SoundCloud itself, but to record separately using whatever voice recorder you want then upload this into SoundCloud.
Some voice recording software like the AudioCopy app, lets you do it directly from there; others require you to go into SoundCloud and click ‘Upload’ then find the voice file that you made.
I’ve spent hours trying to record on an older iPhone (it’s too old and I now know this is impossible), then I tried on my new ish iPad but never get to a record button. Really spent hours on this when I should be learning welsh! So now I’m using the record memo already installed on my iPad and hope that will work for the course. Maybe you could try that?
