Embed an audio recorder (browser mic) on your website or blog. Invite your visitors to leave audio comments, testimonials, opinions, language lessons, or stories.
Evoca offers plug-ins for blogs or websites powered by WordPress, Drupal, Blogger and Type Pad, as well as generic code that can be added to any website. Links to the plug-ins and all of the code are available on the plug-ins page which is accessible when you are logged into your Evoca account by clicking on the “Embed recorders” link on the home page of your Evoca Express account.
How to embed a recorder on your website or blog
When logged into your Evoca account, click on “Embed recorders” and choose from four mic designs: 2 Horizontal, with and without Evoca branding and 2 Vertical, with and without Evoca branding. Recorder HTML code is presented on the recorder [Browser Mic] plug-in page. When you have selected the mic that you want, simply copy the HTML code below it using the copy button, and post it into the code for your website or blog. The code generated is specific for your Evoca account, which ensures the recordings made using the mic will be saved to your account.
Here is an example of a Horizonal recorder without Evoca branding:
When a recording is submitted by a visitor, it is saved with the title “Comment Recording” and the default security setting is private. The title and security setting can be easily changed, but allow you to review any recording made prior to publishing it.
Get email addresses and text comments from your commenters. The person making the recording can also add an email address and text comment prior to sending the recording. This information is appended to the recording and can be viewed by clicking the “+” to the left of the recording title in the “My recordings” table after the recording is submitted. Hint: If it is very important to get the email address and/or text comment from your visitor, add some copy on your web page or blog such as: “Be sure to include your email address and text comment,” or whatever if appropriate for your purpose.
How to provide online playback of your recordings
Any recording can be posted on websites and blogs for playback using one of Evoca’s player widgets because we auto-generate the player code for you to simply copy/paste. You also can publish recordings to Facebook and Twitter.
Many users embed an Evoca player on their site in addition to the mic, so that visitors can hear the comments left by others. You will also receive an email each time a recording is created on your site. Here are the player options:
- Standard and custom single recording players:
- Smartplayer plays back on any computer, smartphone [including iPod, iPad and Androids, and BlackBerrys]
- HTML audio tag
- Custom single recording player, using the Evoca player wizard
- Standard and custom playlist players – recommending Album player but you can also publish:
