This was a rather interesting project - a voice recorder used in translation exams. Pupils record interleaved clips from an original and their translations thereof. It is then bundled into an MP3 and emailed off to the tutor.

We ran into a whole host of technological hiccups, the chief of which was memory usage. Sadly raw audio eats memory for breakfast which the uni computers didn't really like very much :/
