How to Collect Voicemail Through Your Website with SpeakPipe

In a couple episodes of Two Ed Tech Guys Take Questions and Share Cool Stuff Rushton and I have mentioned using SpeakPipe. SpeakPipe is a tool that allows you to collect voicemail messages through your website or blog. With SpeakPipe installed on your blog anyone can click on the "send voicemail" button and leave a message for you. You can then either listen to the message or read a transcript of the message in your SpeakPipe account.

Someone who watched one of the webinars in which Rushton and I mentioned SpeakPipe emailed me this week for advice on how to install SpeakPipe. I made the following short video to explain how you can install SpeakPipe on a Google Site. The process in the video can used for just about any other website or blog platform that allows you to embed 3rd party HTML widgets.

Applications for Education
SpeakPipe can be a nice little addition to a school, library, or club website so that you can collect voice messages that are automatically transcribed for reading. You can also use it to simply create your own MP3 recordings that you download and distribute through your blog or website.

Use SpeakPipe to Send Voice Messages to Email Recipients

SpeakPipe is a free service for receiving voicemail messages from visitors to your blog or website. I reviewed it back in May. Today. SpeakPipe added a new service to their offerings. Now SpeakPipe users can send voice messages to anyone.

The new SpeakPipe messaging service is easy to use. Just sign into your account at then click the "send a voice message to email" button. Clicking that button will prompt you to enter an email address and to allow SpeakPipe to access your computer's microphone. SpeakPipe will record you and send an email to anyone you specify. The recipient of your message does not have to have a SpeakPipe account to hear the message. The recipient of your message can listen to your recording online or they can download your message.

Applications for Education
SpeakPipe installed on your blog or website could provide an easy way for parents to leave messages for you. SpeakPipe's messaging service could be a good way for you to reach busy parents who would rather hear a message from you than read a message. The download option for recipients also makes SpeakPipe an option for creating short one-take podcasts or to simply create voice reminders for yourself.
