Are there any experts on this forum
who have a hobby of making sound
recordings for the web?


I know there are many complications
regarding file size, compression, software,
microphones ...   And where to "host"
the sound files ... to link to from China Daily.


:) Any information would be much appreciated.
(It would be nice to be able to have voice
for some of the English topics here.)

This is the one: http://www.mytempdir.com/

and this one: http://www.streamload.com/App.asp


Sorry, simba, mytempdir.com has a Maximum file size - 40,960 Kb
A good sound file might be as big as an MP3 (especially
if we add music. :) Don't forget our Limerick Opera! )


www.streamload.com sounds more promising ... (lots of space 25G)

But we still need online (free!) recording software ... etc etc

:) In any case, thanks for quick response!

Back to work ...

If you compress your voice well into MP3...

...I think 40M can at most can give you 3-5 minutes something...

Is it not enough for your Limerick ?

Ooops, ... I misread 40,000 KB as 40 KB.
You're right.

A podcast is a like a radio program ...

:) That's a longer recording than I was thinking about.
but thank you for the idea.

What I had in mind when I posted this topic is
to find out how a "short-poem-length" recording
can best be made cheaply and made available
on the web.  (Less than a minute.)

:) A way for people to read a poem on the web ...
