If it's windows machine under Accessories is the "Sound Recorder". If you want something with more options you can use Audacity.

Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder

You of course need also need a microphone, if you have a mini jack labeled "mic" or "aux" you can just get a regular microphone.

Sound recorder used to make large files, if you are sending more than a few words, the file might get too big. If you don't want to install software, you might try borrowing someone's smartphone, then send the file to your email and save it on your computer.

That's because it uses uncompressed .wav, check the options for .mp3 or .wmv.

Audacity has options for .mp3 which is probably what you want to use for something like this for compatibility reasons.
