Hi, I’m Myrtha, I work at Play it Again Video. Today, a customer, Danielle, walked in the door with audio cassettes she said had recordings of her daughter speaking Balinese. She brought her audio tapes to transfer them to CDs. Danielle and her daughter lived in Bali for a number of years right amongst the natives. In one of the audio cassettes, we even heard a rooster cock-a-doodle-do.
It was amazing how her daughter picked up Balinese just living there for a few months. From the recordings digitized from the audio cassettes, we could hear her joking with her friends like 2 Balinese little girls. You could not have guessed one of the two had curly blonde hair and deep blue eyes.
I told Danielle, my biggest regret was not recording my daughter saying the Shabbat prayer which she learned to do in Pre-School at the Jewish Community Center near our house. She could say it in perfect pitch and intonation (we are Chinese), and I did not record that on audio or video.
If you did record your children’s voices, we can help you transfer your audio or video tapes to digital forms; you and your children can hear that voice again.
