What is VoiceThread?

A VoiceThread is a collaborative, interactive, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos. It allows people to navigate through the slides and leave comments in 5 formats: voice (with a microphone or telephone), textaudio file (upload from computer), video (via a webcam), and doodles.

With VoiceThread, group conversations are collected from anywhere in the world at any time and shared in one place, all with no software to install. Users can doodle while commenting (drawing annotation overlays), use multiple Identities, and pick which comments are shown through Comment Moderation.

VoiceThreads can even be embedded to play and receive comments on other websites, and they can be exported and saved as a file on your computer, a CD or flash drive so that you can send them in an email or play them as an archival movie on a digital device.
