When using the "dictation correction" overwrite mode, are you able to overwrite only a short portion, or is the rest of the file deleted?

When “Add/Overwrite” in the menu is set to “Overwrite,” you can add an overwrite recording after a selected point in a recorded file. The part of the file after the selected point is erased.

Aww, this unit does not have any setting that allows you to set the time to start and end recording, so yes you do have to press the buttons manually. It has VOR (Voice Operated Recording) feature though. Just turn on the VOR function and to make the IC recorder start recording when the IC recorder detects sound, and pause when no sound is heard, eliminating recording during soundless periods.

You can change the recording settings depending on the type of use.

1. Meeting - To record in a variety of situations, such as recording in a conference room.
2. Voice Notes - To record dictation with a microphone in front of your mouth.
3. Interview - To record human voice at a distance of 1 to 2 meters (40 to 80 in.).
4. Audio IN - To record from external equipment, such as a portable CD/MD player or a tape recorder, connected to the IC recorder via an audio output connector (stereo mini-jack). Also used for dubbing.

You may also refer to page 32-33 of the operating manual using the link below.

Thank you for the feedback, Sony will definitely take that into consideration for future products.

Regarding your question about a feature that allows you to pick up where you left off from a previous recording after turning it off, this model actually has an option like that. It's called the Add/Overwrite feature. However, this does not automatically pick up the file from where you left off. When you turn the unit back on, you have to select the file and then choose the add option. You can check details about the feature on page 72 of the manual. The link is provided below.

Yes, you need to set the clock to record the date and time. While the IC recorder is in the stop mode, you can set the clock using the menu. Press and hold •DISP–MENU to enter the menu mode. Then select “Detail Menu,” then “Date&Time” to set the clock.

It would be required to increase or decrease the minutes by 24 hours in the Sony ICDAX412 Digital Voice Recorder to adjust from AM to PM or vice-versa.

If the Time display is set to 24 hour format, change the time by 12 hours.
