New York, NY, United States, 2009/10/26 - Users of WordPress Version 2.7 and above can get Evoca's plugin to easily add online recorder widgets to websites and blogs to invite their customers, fans, and supporters to record comments, opinions, stories, and language practice sessions.
“Our mission is to increase our subscribers’ ROI or ‘Return on Interaction’ by engaging online visitors through audio commenting. With the growing popularity of WordPress.org as a leading web publishing platform, the Evoca team is keeping pace with the WordPress community’s interests in plugins like our Evoca Browser Mic”, commented Murem Sharpe, Evoca CEO. “Evoca’s Browser Mic attracts fresh, compelling user-generated content every day. The genius of WordPress is that it combines the dynamic content of a blog with the static content of a traditional website.”
In addition to releasing the Browser Mic plugin available for WordPress version 2.7 and above, Evoca offers plugins for WordPress 2.6 and below, TypePad, Blogger, Drupal, and a generic plugin that will work on all sites that allow copy/paste HTML and enable Flash objects. Recorders can be embedded on more than one page or site to invite comments about different topics. Recordings made with a Browser Mic are instantly saved to the Evoca Express subscriber’s account and can be streamed on any website, blog, and social media profile to share with the world or kept private to share with a customer service team. Evoca sends the subscriber an email message each time a new voice comment is created and saved to their Evoca Express account.
“Because it’s our job to create strategies and design for effective web communication, we have embraced WordPress as a web development platform for its agility and easy integration with other popular applications”, remarked Jonathan Nery, CEO of the Kloupgroup, a consultancy founded in Sweden, now based in Savannah, that specializes in social media application design, enterprise software, and mobile content and delivery. “Evoca’s WordPress recorder plugin is a terrific tool to help companies connect with their customers. Using actual voices to deliver customer testimonials, supporters’ opinions, and fans’ enthusiasm makes the online experience genuine and believable”.
How does the Evoca Express Browser Mic plug-in work?
When you install the plug-in, we will place a voice recorder in your blog's navigation bar. Any user that visits your site can leave you a voice recoding using this plug-in.
Where will the voice comments go?
Any new voice recording that is made will be stored in your Evoca Express account. You will find the recordings made using the plug-in under "Comments" in your Evoca Express home page.
Can I post the voice recordings to my blog?
Yes! All recordings that are made will come with a custom HTML code you can use to post a voice comment into your blog. So, if a reader leaves you a voice comment that you want to share on your blog, all you do is copy and paste the HTML code provided into your blog post, and your readers will be able to listen.
Does the person who leaves me a voice message need to install any software?
No. The Evoca Express Browser Mic plug-in uses standard browser technology to enable readers to record using their existing settings. All they need is a computer microphone. By simply clicking on the "Record" button, they are ready to go!
Are the recordings saved as public or private?
All recordings are saved as “private” in your Evoca Express account under "Comments". You can move the recording to your My home page , keep it private, or make it public to stream from a player in your Evoca Express account or that you embed in your website, blog, or social media profile.
How will I know when a reader leaves me an audio message?
We will send you an email each time you get a recording with a handy link to go straight to listen.
