Request for the technology enabled

We have lots of pictures.
We have only one record of his voice.
It is the message on our digital answering machine.
If someone out there knows how, could they call our house, record the message, and copy it to disc for us?
Don't say you will, or try, or something. We'll assume it isn' possible--but would love to be wrong and be surprised some day when someone appears with a record of his voice.
Thank you.

What answering machine
is it? Got a model number?

Presumably it's a digital answering machine? Analog would be better, of course, but I doubt those are even made anymore. Knowing that would at least provide a clue as to what kind of fidelity could be retrieved, and hence whether it's worth trying to bring some equipment to the house and do things properly. That said, almost anything would likely be better than trying to record through the telephone, so it may be worthwhile regardless.

Ahh, but of course you said it was digital already. Me = Dolt.

This is so very strange.
Andrew spoke to his sister-in-law today and they were discussing that there were many pictures but no recordings of Jeff's voice. Then I come here and read this.

I'm not good with technology. Wish I knew an answer.

Somewhere, I have a video of first coronation that would have his fealty oath. There are probably also many videos of peerages at which he would have spoken. Just an idea.

Oh. my.

I know how it can be done but do not currently have a standard phone (only a cell phone, which will not support this analog tech) to be able to do it. Radio Shack sells a small microphone with a suction cup that attaches to the receiver and has a cord that plugs into the microphone jack of a tape recorder. Hit record, dial the number, and record what is coming across the telephone. It is actually a simple process. I had one of these mics, but I gave it to Alonzio.

Here is the catalog number for the microphone -- #44-533. It could also be plugged into the microphone jack of a computer sound card to record digitally and make CD audio or MP3.

You are amazing. Thank you so much. BTW, Rowan has the red one, I took the brown.

Thank you.

I'd bet that there are several video recordings of His Grace in Pennsic courts, on the throne or speaking for others. If you'd like I can put a call out on SCA_Laurels.
