Local Voices

Brett Atkins, who runs AccessLocalNet, has been using CommunityWalk to create maps of local communities. I was just looking at one of these maps and stumbled across a great little widget that he puts into his maps that have the voice of the store owner describing their store. I love this. It really brings the whole thing to life.

You can check it on his map, Access Franklin

You can get use these widgets for yourself at AudioAcrobat.

  • That is cool - I wonder if video is on the way?

  • Looks like Brett decided to prove that video is already there. Check out the map again :)

  • He's using SitePal and AudioAcrobat. Both are pay services. From what I can tell Odeo and YouTube will allow you to embed the same audio and video, respectively. It would be a matter of choosing the right sized player from OdeoStudio and scaling down the video from YouTube.
