    There are different ways to record voice etc. the probably most effective is Mini Disc (but there are many many Mp3 players that can record voice via a integrated microphone).

    A microphone is really all you need. You can use a program like cool edit to record the voice... you can easily remove background white noise and add a little reverb to give it some depth.

    ya, but don't you need to cart a computer around with you to do this? i'd like to be able, for instance, to record them in the car when they sing their car-ride songs.......

    Ah ok. I thought you meant you were gonna sit em down and make em say stuff... hmm, there are mini digital recorders. I got my bf one for christmas a couple years ago, it's was about $80 at the time, I am sure they are less and better now.

    There are also some portable music devices with a built in digital recorder. $50-80 probably...

I am not sure about how the one we have would do that. I think it can be done, but with some effort.
