I wrote a JOSM plugin to do this some time ago. I'm not sure if it
still works given recent changes in JOSM, but I used it to map my town
and it was quite handy:
Requires LiveGPS to work. It added a new layer, and when you pressed
and held a key (hardcoded to the space bar, I believe), it would
record from the microphone to a wav file. It would then add an audio
marker to the layer that you could click to play back your wav file.
You could also save the layer to GPX.
