Interactive presentations

Nik Peachey

I’ve just been looking at a really interesting on line tool called Voicethread. What's Voicethread? Voice thread enables users to create online presentations using their own images. It also allows the creator to add audio or written text to the images and give access to other people to leave audio or text comments on the presentation. This is a really nice way of creating presentations that can interact and create dialogue with an online audience. Here’s a couple that I’ve created.

Subtitling your video clips

Nik Peachey

I’ve just been looking at a really excellent Beta site called Dot Sub The site is an interesting adaptation of the Youtube model. People can upload videos (up to 300Mb) and share them among limited groups or with everyone. What’s really interesting though about Dot Sub is that it is aimed at subtitling and translation for people with hearing problems. The video tool allows you to input subtitles beneath the clip. These can either be translations or transcriptions.
