Websites like AudioBoo, Cinch, and iPadio which permit “no-edit” audio recording and publishing can be utilized in extremely constructive, powerful and creative ways. I’m finishing up my chapter on Audio tools for my first eBook, “Playing with Media: simple ideas for powerful sharing,” and I’m using an AudioBoo my daughter, Rachel, recorded at the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, as an introductory example. Rachel was five when she recorded this. Taken by itself, the accompanying photograph shows the shadow of something below the water, and a side profile of a young child looking over the railing.
Combined with an audio recording made at the time, however, this photograph can “say” much more.
I created a 90 second screencast of this AudioBoo using Screenflow software, so I could embed this file into my ePUB eBook. It’s also shared on YouTube. I included some explanatory text boxes in the screencast which provide some additional information about the features of AudioBoo. One of the best: It’s entirely FREE!
