An Experiment in AudioBlogging

An Experiment in AudioBlogging. Some new discussion is centering around “audioblogging” (i.e. vocal recordings of blog entries). I always chuckle when I see something being seriously discussed and analyzed that was originally just a blogging gimmick a season or two ago.

One of the important things to point out is the need to provide alternative representations of your audio content for non-hearing people (kind of like “alt” tags for images — something I sheepishly admit I did not do in my one audio entry). On the other hand, I try to make my site as accessible to non-sighted people as possible — and I’ve had a 1-800 telephone version of my blog for over a year and a half now…
