FWIW, I've got used to listen to the audio recordings -- particualrly if
I have not attended that meeting.

At times, that has implied pre-processing the audio to increase the
volume level or reduce the background noise.

This has also proven to be useful, when, while there, I couldn't fully
understand what the guy at the mike was saying, either because of
low-volume, background noise, or a strong accent I wasn't used to.

Cheers,
