Last week we talked a little bit about the planning process for helping someone write their spiritual ethical will. This week I’d like to talk about how you can use technology to make documenting someone else’s thoughts and feelings about life easier to do. Some of the technology devices that you can use include digital audio recorders, video recorders and speak to type software programs.
The first piece of technology that you can use to capture someone else’s thoughts, feelings and philosophies for their ethical will is a digital audio recorder. These recorders can be used by the person to record their memories, thoughts and directions when they are by themselves, or they can be used by you during an interview session. The audio recordings can be used to create a transcript, or they can be as the actual ethical will or essay.
Video recorders are another type of technology that you can use to document someone else’s ethical will. Like an audio recording, you can transcribe a video recording to create a paper version of the ethical will, however, the video recording itself is going to be what heirs will enjoy the most.
The final piece of technology that you can use to help someone document their last thoughts and feelings is speak to type technology. This technology can be set up so that a person can input their philosophies into a microphone and have the software program translate the verbal message. This is a great option for people who are too weak to type their ethical will and for people who don’t feel comfortable talking about their feelings in front of someone else.
Ethical essays can be dictated directly to someone else or they can be dictated to a technology source. These dictated messages can then be formatted into a written ethical will that is used to satisfy legal requirements and emotional requirements of those that are left behind. Return to this blog next week for more information on spiritual ethical wills.
