OneNote audio and video

With OneNote you can record audio and video clips as you take notes.
To record audio, you need a microphone and to record video, you need to connect a camera. 

Requirements

Most current models of laptop and portable computers have a built-in microphone and camera that allows you to record audio and/or video in OneNote using no additional hardware. 

If your computer does not have a built-in microphone or camera, you can purchase an external microphone, or a Webcam which has both a microphone and camera.

You can also choose to import an existing Audio and Video file.
