[All?] Dictator - the most undemocratic recording and dictation software ever

I have been using OSMtracker [1] for taking voice notes while biking, 
using the phone headset/microphone.

I think it creates a GPX file with some anchors in it, pointing at the 
wav files names, it has generated. While opening the GPX file under 
JOSM, with wav files in the GPX directory, I get icons all over the 
track that I can click to hear it.

This looks like this:
<trkpt lat="XX.XXXXXXXX" lon="XX.XXXXXXXX">
<wpt lat="YY.YYYYYYYY" lon="YY.YYYYYYYY">
     <link href="20080914_174113.wav" />

For me, this is satisfying. I can upload the GPX to OSM website without 
problem. The only drawback if I would be picky, would be the extra data 
in the GPX that is sent to OSM for nothing.
