I recorded a short VoiceThread this evening discussing the successful videoconference we had today from Ford Island, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, featuring several survivors of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Both of those survivors were also aboard the USS Oklahoma, which is being dedicated tomorrow on December 7th, just around the corner from where we held our videoconference today.
I actually recorded this VoiceThread (initially) on my HP laptop over the Verizon high speed cellular network modem I described in the previous post. The audio quality sounded poorer than normal, even though I used the same USB headset microphone I always use now for audio recording. I think this may be attributible to slower available bandwidth. Several of the recordings I made play back fine on the original laptop I where I recorded them, using Internet Explorer 7 for Windows, but not on other browsers or on my Mac. I have no idea why. I’ve had few problems with VoiceThread, so this glitch is mystifying. I’m going to wait and see if it gets resolved, and if it doesn’t I’ll re-record the narration for those images which have missing audio.
