Default Transferring a compact cassette to an MP3 file for a Funeral service

Hello,

Firstly, Iím really not sure where to put this post, so moderators if you feel Iíve put it in the wrong section please transfer it to the appropriate section.

Righty-ho, hereís the situationÖ. My eldest Sons Partners Grandfather recently passed away and as part of his Funeral next Monday, 17th Feb the family would like to use part of a speech her late Grandfather did in the early 1980ís, which is on a compact cassette.

The family would like to use this as part of the funeral service, but this must be transferred from compact cassette to MP3 file to enable it to be integrated into the audio for the Funeral service on the 17th Feb.

I could have done it using Audacity, but I donít have decent cassette player anymore - that'll teach me to have a clear out

Seeing the importance of the cassette the family would like to find someone reliable and trustworthy to transfer this to MP3 before Monday 17th Feb and can anyone recommend someone the London or Poole, Dorset areas who could help? The family would consider posting using Special Delivery if the person is recommended and is trustworthy.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Regards
Terry Bateman

I'm going to Dorset this week, I can put a good cassette deck in the car and provided they have a desktop computer and dont mind me downloading audacity, then I'll do it for them.

Send me a PM if interested.

By coincidence, a few hours ago whilst researching something entirely different, I came across this press clipping from 1896
