Previous questions about this product

  • Sony ICD-MX20

    I've always used tape recorders. When dictating, can you stop, mid-sentence, and back up to rephrase, like you can with a tape recorder? The previous digital recorders I've tried could not do this. When you stop recording, you have to either completely start over, or continue in a new "document." Also, does this recorder come with the DragonSeaking software? Thanks!
