  • Publication number: 20170098449
    Abstract: A control device for a recording system includes a sound acquisition unit, a recording control unit, an item management unit and a presentation control unit. The sound acquisition unit acquires sound data from a sound pickup device. The recording control unit records information based on the sound data as recording information corresponding to one of predetermined items. The item management unit extracts one of the items, in which the recording information has not yet been recorded, as an uninput item. The presentation control unit causes a presentation device to show the uninput item.
