The topics discussed here grow out of the bread-and-butter issues that confront my consulting and software clients on a daily basis. We'll talk about prosaic stuff like Membership Management, Meetings and Events Management and Fundraising, broader ideas like security and software project management, and the social, cultural, and organizational issues that impact IT decision-making.

Voice to Post

I'm playing with the Voice2Page system that I stumbled across today... It let's you add a voice message on any page -- using the telephone as the recording instrument. Once you have a message you can change it, like changing your voice mail, without touching the code on your page. Sort of cool.

Well, the problem is that your message plays on every page. So it is actually a deterrent for people to click around and visit (or at least it seems so to me.)

I have to admit, I've never liked sites with embedded sound, but that's just my own personal preference.

Michelle - if I had put the message in the sidebar or header, that would be true - but I placed it only in this entry.
So the message will play on the default page as long as this entry is still showing in that view. For other individual posts, it does not play at all.

Hi michael...

This is so interesting. If i will put the message in my home page for example, does the message plays continuously when I click to my other page of the site? Or it will play again and again when I switch to other page of the siteā€¦?

Please advice.

eytstan - see the note to Michelle above - if you keep it to one content page, rather than in the template - it only plays on that page. in a php or asp(x) site, you could script it to play only once per session...
