WriterKey suggests using voice comments when students will benefit from the tone of your comment. Comments should be brief and specific to where the comment marker is inserted into the text. Don't be afraid to say something positive.

Once recorded, an audio comment icon will appear in the student paper

The audio comment appears as a microphone icon next to the highlighted text.
