MP3: MP3 is an acronym for MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 audio layer 3. MP3 is the file extension for MPEGaudio layer 3. Layer 3 is one of three coding schemes (layer 1, layer 2 and layer 3) for the compression of audio signals. Layer 3 uses perceptual audio coding and psychoacoustic compression to remove all superfluous information (more specifically, the redundant and irrelevant parts of a sound signal. The stuff the human ear doesn't hear anyway)
This following information is only a guide to on how to operate an MP3 player – each machine will have its own specific features. Before completing actual recordings for your students it may be advisable to spend some time ‘Getting to know the device’ and to make sure you are confident that when you sit with your student that the device will record and save your recordings.
