Name Catcher Voice Broadcast and Recording

Name Catcher Voice Broadcast and Recording

The Name Catcher Voice Broadcast feature can be used for a number of different activities, such as name pronunciation for an athletic team or convocation ceremony; it allows the user to record their voice directly through their own phone. This feature also allows the user to rerecord their message until it's just right, to ensure no mistakes are made when orators announce their name on the day of the event. 

With this feature, you can record a unique greeting that your registrant will hear before they record their message, such as a personalized congratulatory message from the Registrar of a University.
