      Answer

      It is not necessarily voice activated. It has VOR (Voice Operated Recording) function. You set this function to ON to make the IC recorder start recording when the IC recorder detects sound, and pause when no sound is heard, eliminating recording during soundless periods.

      Answer

      The default is a beep when most functions are activated, but this can be turned OFF for more discrete use. You can also disable the LED recording indicator and "lock" the unit to prevent accidental mode changes. Very discrete if desired.

                Answer

                Yes. But the date of recording will not be displayed if you recorded the file when the clock was not set.

                Answer

                Yes, you can easily select a folder at any time. There is a dedicated button for this. There are five numbered folders, Folder01, 02 etc. I don't believe they can be renamed though if that is something you want. Each folder can hold up to 199 recordings. I would definitely recommend this for recording lectures.
