Place a widget on your blog, and your visitors can record an audio message (as long as they have a mic).
Now what about having this for your blog posts, this way visitors can leave text or audio comments to a post…these audio comments would need permalinks, this way other visitors can read or listen to comments.
Then you’d need another comments RSS feed, one for audio comments.
That’s not all, if your blog readers don’t have a mic to leave an audio comment, they can always ring a phone number using Evoca Virtual Voicemail.
So far I have mentioned only 2 features, Evoca is infact a full fledged social network for audio recordings:
- record audio from the Evoca site, skype, upload an existing file, your phone recordings, or use EvocaTell (ring a phone number and record)
- tag recordings, form private/public group, place your recordings in albums
- RSS and podcast output
- listen to other peoples recordings (social network)…you can make recordings private
- add a recording widget to your blog post
I just realised I thought about an audio social network several posts ago, my fictional name was “Soundbites.”
See the FAQ.
It’s like a generic audio blog social network, meaning you could actually have your own audio blog, where each blog post is audio, not text…I wonder if there are any blog apps (not in a social network) that let create audio posts instead of text posts.
I guess you could start a blog, and for each post just embed your daily Evoca recording…I guess YouTube diaries are this sort of thing.
I like the idea of audio snippets and enabling them as a widget, I might upload ideas for a song from my phone to Evoca, then get that in a widget and put it in a blog post for friends to listen to.
The Evoca blog uses an audio widget as an about page.
Snapvine - widget for your blog where visitors can leave an audio message by dialing a number.
Supcast - widget for your blog where visitors can leave an audio message by dialing a number, or sending an email or MMS (you can leave text and images as well as audio).
MyChingo - widget for your blog where visitors can leave an audio message by using a web mic (and you even get an RSS feed, that answers my earlier question).
SayNow - people can subscribe to your broadcasts by SMSing a number, they can also do this via a blog widget, and you also have a number for people to leave you a voicemail. You broadcast a message by uploading a file to the web or calling a number, inturn people can listen to the message on their phone or PC, and then reply. Similar services are Broadtexter, Mozes, TextMarks, and 4info.
Similar to Evoca is Pheeder.
Abazab - capture audio, video, text on your phone and email it or MMS it to your Abazab account, this content will then appear on your blog widget (you can also upload stuff from a PC).
