There is currently no simple way to export the sounds. Not even to files, let alone to the Journal.

It would probably be just a few lines of Squeak code, but there is now UI for it.

Currently, the Record activity only produces Ogg Vorbis on Sugar 0.84, and the two other (orphaned?) activities that generate audio, TimeLapse and ShowNTell, are limited to 0.82 (and Ogg Speex).

Indeed that would be nice. I'm cc'ing the etoys developers list, maybe this catches someone's eye ;)
