snap audio notes article mind map

Ever wanted to attach voice notes to your mind maps? Well you can. While a few mind mapping apps have built-in audio recording, not all do. However, all mind mapping apps do allow you to attach files to map nodes. That means that you can attach an audio file, and when you click on the linked map node, the default desktop application for that audio file format will activate.

If you’re using MindManager 8 and up, there’s an embedded Internet Explorer web browser. So any file type that I.E. can handle will be played internally. For other audio formats, the default application will start. (Just note that you can use pretty much any mind mapping application that allows linking to an audio file.) If you look at the image above, you can see an audio icon to the right of the main mind map node.

Applications of this include audio notes for courses – particularly language learning – and any step-by-step instructional content.
