Because I’m not ready to face the world yet

(Or, how to publish sound files in WordPress.)

I signed up for Soundcloud and recorded my first message.

Truly, a voice made for print media.

IMMEDIATE REACTIONS:

  1. Might be better served recording audio on my PC using Audacity and then uploading after clean-up.
  2. I wonder if I can change the size/look of the audio player?
  3. Can I edit online?
  4. Only 2 hours worth of audio. That might be enough, really. Let’s look at alternatives.

Second test

I have no idea what’s going to happen next:

AudacityTest

OK, so I recorded an MP3 using Audacity and basically I get a link to an MP3 file. Which is what I expected.

Third test

Using a plugin with instructions in Hungarian Czech, so your guess is as good as mine:

Fourth test

Very nice! Downloaded and installed the Mini Audio Player plugin and installed it, and the second test link came to life! This may be the way to go…
