It’s been a little over a year since we started the OEG Voices podcast. We are looking to make a new version of the opening segment, that was done in the multiple voice fashion of the Mailchimp ad
The current version of the intro includes voices of OE Global Staff
which is fine, but we’d like to make a new version using your voices (in the collective worldwide sense). If you are willing to help, make an audio recording of the text below. Or record using something like Vocaroo and send us a link.
Record this ideally at an even pace, but with a natural sounding voice. It’s okay to pause at the end of sentences, we will use just a few portions in the final editing. It is best if recorded in a quiet area (a clothes closet is ideal!).
Hello and welcome to OEG Voices, a podcast bringing to you the voices and ideas of open educators from around the world. OEG Voices is produced by Open Education Global, a member-based, non-profit organization supporting the development and use of open education globally. Learn more about us at oeglobal.org.
There’s much to take in at a global level. We hope to bring you closer to how open education is working by hearing the stories of practitioners, told in their own voices. Each episode introduces you to a global open educator and we invite you to later engage in conversation with them in our OEG Connect community.

You are too kind! Yes, after futzing around on my Mac with Quicktime, Garage Band, and Voice Memos, I realized that Vocaroo was simplest for creating and downloading a basic mp3 file. So thanks for helping me learn about a new tool, Alan.
Just for fun and to see how it works, I made a recorder using H5P. It only saves .wav files, so I made a change to allow those now as uploads.
Note, this appears to not be working, it is generating an HTTPS error, leaving it here for testing and reporting… As it turns out, the Discourse platform strips out the necessary portion of the embed code that triggers a request to access the microphone. Until further notice, I refer anyone interested in the same H5P recorder in use here.
