Recording voice messages on the forum?

Hi everyone,

In a couple of weeks you will be able to record and listen to voice messages here on the forum. We are teaming up with Phil Burk, the creator of JavaSonics which is an online voice recording system. If you like, you can read the our interview with Phil Burks.

What do you think of this project? What additional features would be useful?

Many thanks,

Hi Torsten and everyone,

I like some features which are more interactive. For interaction, I think both audio and video are great, and video is much better than audio because video is more attractive and impressive for most of people definitely. However, video will take people more bandwith as well. So it might be a trade off question.

Moreover, I try to play the audio, “[color=red]Listen to this voice message” on the left corner of the first post of this page. But it doesn’t work. I have no idea if it can work or not. Could you please tell me what’s the problem or I misread it only? Thanks in advance.

Speak to you soon.

I am intreasted in your new development, speaking and hearing others, it is an improvement to what we are doing. pls keep carring us along. On the other hand, I am supporting Maggie on her video idea but adding that the video thing should be an addition. What do you think, my dear Torsten?

Dear Torsten,
I can’t find where to click on the ‘Record’ button as I was told on my computer
to enable me record my voice on the form site. I have down loaded the Java software and have
acquired the headset with mic.
What do I do?

Hi Daniel,

Please take a look at your forum posts again. You will see the ‘record’ button between ‘quote’ and ‘edit’ buttons. The thing is that you first need to create and post a text message. Only after that you can record a voice message. Hope this makes sense. Just let me know.
