+01: New Features:

1.  You can now create public and private recordings.  And using your SpokenText web address or Podcast address share your files with your friends, colleagues  or visitors to your web site.  The only thing you need to do is create an Alias and you are off to the races.

2.  The My Account page allows you to change a few preferences for how your SpokenText account works.  We will be adding more over time. 

3.  You can now delete multiple recordings at one time.  Or change multiple recording status's from Public to Private at one time.

4.  We added a few pages about the benefits and features of SpokenText.

+02: Resolved Issues:

1.  Some of you may have found that you could not record any files,  You would just receive an error each time.  But when you went to the "View Recordings" page your files were present but never changed status or finished.  This issue has been fixed with some help from a few nice members who told us about it and gave us the feedback we needed to fix it.  Thanks again to these members who helped us out we appreciate it!

If you were effected by this issue please try our site again.  We apologize for any inconvenience/headaches this may have caused you.

2. I have noticed recently that some members recordings have a length of  00:00:00. This means that SpokenText encountered an error while recording your file.  If the file was a PDF this was probably do to the file having been copy protected.  SpokenText can not record copy protected PDF files.   If the document was a web page it may have failed because the source web page was formatted poorly.  You may try copying and pasting the web pages text in to SpokenText to record these poorly formatted web pages.

+03: Donation Goal:

04: Notices:

Some of you may not be aware of this but by default all recordings are deleted after 7 days.  If you would like to have your recordings last longer send us an email with your username and the reason why you need your recordings to last longer and we will increase the time your recordings will last before they are deleted.
