Alan Levine has had a close look at the inclusion of audio recordings in WordPress blog posts (link).
What is interesting about Alan’s process is the opportunity for collaborative work through the audio recording.
Alan’s post raises important issues about the role of audio in blog posts. His instructions are comprehensive.
I have looked at a variety of options for audio in WordPress. I have not had the opportunity to explore SPLOT Box (link). I do think the possibility of collaborative audio is fascinating. Alan observes in his post “with support for podcasting feeds, moderation options, and now recording, this could be a one site podcast studio. The thing you get with this… is an ability to have people contribute content”.
The availability of multiple podcasts makes this sharing particularly interesting. One could imagine compilations and aggregation of ideas that adds to the accessibility dimensions of WordPress sites. W3C has some excellent advice in this regard (link).
