Vocaroo is a free service that allows users to create audio recordings without the need to install any software. All you need to provide is a microphone. I used the microphone built into my MacBook to make the recording below. What I like about Vocaroo besides the ability to record without installing software is the option to embed the recording anywhere. After completing your recording, Vocaroo gives you the choice to publish it or to scrap it and try again.
I’ve embedded a short greeting below.
Applications for Education
Vocaroo is an easy, free service that teachers and students can use to create audio recordings for use in slide shows or in blogs and websites. I recently saw one instance of Vocaroo being used to embed audio recordings into Google Earth place marks.
