SpeakPipe is a great little service that lets you collect voice messages from visitors to your blog. I used it for many years on a classroom blog so that parents could leave voice messages by just clicking the “send a message” button on my blog. I could then either listen to the message or read a transcript of the message. Last fall SpeakPipe added support for iPad users. This morning I got an email from them announcing some more updates.
The latest updates to SpeakPipe give you options to customize the color scheme and welcome message displayed to your blog’s visitors. In addition to the appearance update there were updates made to SpeakPipe to help ensure that your visitor’s messages reach you. Now when visitors record a message they will be notified if the message didn’t record correctly and in that case they will be prompted to record again.
