From our December 9th news release:
Grandma’s stories about growing up in Wisconsin. Grandson Mark’s first sounds. Uncle Fred’s recollections about his life in the circus. Capturing their words for posterity in a digital audio recording? Priceless. Evoca Express provides its easy-to-use Phone-to-Web service to capture, share, and archive family stories, histories, and events as MP3 recordings.
With today’s holiday shopping budgets tighter than ever, Evoca’s consumer service, Evoca Express, makes an affordable $29.95 “virtual stocking stuffer” for relatives and friends of all ages who have a lot to say and simply are not going to write it or type it. Now anyone can give the “gift of voice” by signing up for an Evoca Express member account for a family member or get their own account to capture these special memories. Evoca provides convenient in-bound phone numbers for numerous U.S. and international cities. When the call is made, Evoca automatically recognizes the member and then instantly stores the voice recording as an MP3 file in the member’s online account.
The recordings can be kept private, emailed to specific recipients, downloaded on to CDs, or made public and posted to family and genealogy websites, blogs, and social networking profiles such as Facebook. RSS feeds can alert family members to new recordings that they can upload into their iPods. The EvocaMic, an in-browser Flash recorder, can also be embedded in a website or blog to collect voice recordings using any computer mic. All of these features are available for an annual subscription of $29.95 — less than $2.50 a month or the proverbial “one Starbucks coffee”.
The entire family can share one Evoca Express account using their very own dedicated “family hotline” phone number by adding Evoca’s Virtual Voicemail to record from anywhere, whether they can make it to the family holiday gathering or not. Evoca also makes it possible to make free calls using Skype to record voices of family members living around the world using the Evoca-Skype Call Recorder. This innovative web recording feature, a Skype “Extra”, does not require any software downloads.
Evoca enables organizations and individuals to easily create fresh, engaging audio content using any phone, computer mic, and Skype™ and streams it online to any website, blog, or social media profile. Evoca provides Voice-to-Web digital recording and online distribution through its “software-as-a-service” media platform. Organizations of any size can easily integrate and customize Evoca Media Services features into their web properties, marketing programs, and customer-facing operations using Evoca’s highly scalable enterprise-class API (application programming interface) and telephone services covering over 45 countries.
