The Evoca Voice Comments Recorder plugin for WordPress enables bloggers and website hosts to invite online visitors to record voice comments, in addition to typing a standard text comment. This innovative online voice recording feature is available for anyone using WordPress.org web software to build a blog or website. Getting the Evoca voice commenting plugin is easy at the WordPress website or with an Evoca Express account.
Evoca’s launch of its Voice Comments Recorder plugin coincides with the WordCamp Savannah 2010 conference being held August 20-21 and with the return of educators and students to classrooms and campuses around the world. “Evoca has been a favorite voice recording service for language educators everywhere”, remarked Murem Sharpe, Evoca CEO. “Our new WordPress voice commenting feature enables instructors and students to exchange voice recordings for language practice and feedback sessions, threaded together with text comments.” It is incorporated directly within the standard WordPress commenting system, so educators can review recordings before publishing them online, just as they do with text comments.
Our friend, T.J. Walker , CEO of Media Training Worldwide and top communications expert, offers practical advice about getting feedback from the home team before you take your speech on the road in front of bigger audiences. He encourages you to try out your speech with a smaller audience – a “free focus group.”
Evoca can help you rehearse and get feedback. Record your speech using your phone, just like a mic, use Skype, or our online recorder. Then email the voice recording right from your Evoca Express account to your inner circle to get feedback. Listen to it yourself, too. Once you’ve perfected it, you can email the entire recording or excerpts to the media in the cities where you are scheduled to deliver it. Need a transcription, too? You can order it online or email it to your in-house transcriber.

To capture Hospice patients’ life stories, professionals and volunteers are using the convenient recording-by-phone service offered by Evoca, providing a precious legacy and family keepsake. Interviewers can record using any phone, just like a microphone, while visiting the patient or during a phone call. The recordings – saved in a password protected account in standard MP3 format – can be downloaded, burned to CDs, and listened to online. Recordings made off-line with digital recording devices also can be uploaded to the Evoca Express account for safekeeping and sharing.
Recalling and preserving their stories is an important activity for patients who want to capture their memories for posterity. Patients’ stories can be kept private or contributed as oral histories for their families, communities, veterans’ associations, and religious organizations. For example, according to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization more than 50,000 veterans die each month; that’s roughly 28% of all deaths in the United States.
