We have tags for , , , and 'screen-recording' (synonym to ). I suggest to rename to to match that list (I'm already cleaning up the queue, re-tagging Qs belonging to the others) and to avoid ambiguity.

Optionally, 'recording' could become a synonym; but I'd rather say we let it "die hard".

  • First, is there a meaningful difference between audio-recording and voice-recording? The latter could be synonymized under the former. – Matthew Read Mar 28 '13 at 17:20
  • Yes, there is (at least to me). "voice-recording" to me means "dictaphone" and the like ("lower quality" if you want to say so, and "spoken voice"), usually done via the microphone -- while "audio-recording" rather includes the recording of audio-streams, music (as opposed to "spoken word") etc. and suggests "higher quality". I could go over the tags, check their Qs, re-tag where necessary, and set up fitting tag wikis to make the difference clear :) – Izzy Mar 28 '13 at 19:07

should no longer be used; I've retagged the handful of questions that were using it with more specific variants to disambiguate it. It is not a synonym of anything at the moment since the more specific tags will appear in the tag autocomplete anyway.

  • Hm, somebody seems to have created the 'audio-recording' tag (meanwhile) -- so well, everything fine with me :) Thanks! – Izzy Apr 3 '13 at 15:02

    That was me. It seemed like it made the most sense, as you suggested. – eldarerathis Apr 3 '13 at 15:03
