Audio only snag

Suggest that SnagIt offer an Audio-only snag.  I specifically want to snag archive audio from a web site and can't get to the original file. I don't need a video/audio since there is no video and don't want the expanded file size. I know I can play it off of my computer into a digital recorder, but I'd prefer the audio to be without background household noise.  If you want an example, go to DigitalGeorgetown (repository.library.georgetown.edu/discover and search for Heyden. That's my great uncle.

Thanks for considering my improvement suggestion.

You can (well I can) record the audio directly in Windows. Why would anyone ask Snagit to do something you can easily do for yourself without Snagit?

I didn't know it was a feature in Windows. You are correct. It makes no sense for SnagIt to duplicate existing functionality. I'll search the windows help page. Thanks.

You would want to use the Windows Voice Recorder.
Type it in your taskbar.


You must switch the microphone input to your system audio to capture it.
