Jonathan’s series on the Essential recorders from Zoom, which have accessibility features, concludes on this Living Blindfully extra with the look at the Zoom H1Essential. This is the smallest member of the family and sells for just $99 USD. It can fit in any pocket, and offers high-quality 32-bit float recording. While understandably the recorder lacks some of the features of its larger siblings, it also boasts some features unique to this member of the family.

Here are the topics covered in this episode, and the time in the file for each.
