You should, however, note that the Voice Recorder for Windows 10 does not come with an option to change the audio output format. You’d need to use an audio converter if you like to transcode m4a to wav format, for instance.
In all, the app is pretty easy to use and features the ability to autosave and bookmark.
This UWP app for PC and Tablet is also available for download at the Windows Store.
Why would anyone transcode a lossy format (.m4a) to a lossless one (.wav)? That makes no sense. Great article otherwise.
