User-friendly Recording – by Phone!

Eairdsidh ag obair – Archie at work

A new method of recording is being tested out here, which may come in useful for both teachers and learners. All you need is a phone – landline or mobile – and the technology does the rest, right through to publication on the Internet.

Am Pàipear, the Uist community newspaper, will be featuring as one of the topics of the new series of video materials, but here you can hear a couple of very short interviews about their recent award as 2010 Community Newspaper of the Highlands and Islands.

‘S e dòigh ùr a tha seo airson guthan a chlàradh. Nochdaidh iad an uair sin air an eadar-lìon ann am priob na sùla. Dh’fhaodadh seo a bhith gu math feumail do luchd-teagaisg agus luchd-ionnsachaidh.

Bidh an sreath ùr a’ dèanamh bhideo mu dheidhinn Pàipear Uibhist, ach an seo tha dà agallamh le Eairdsidh MacAoidh a’ bruidhinn mun duais a fhuair iad aig toiseach na bliadhna.

    ‘S e an t-eadar-lìn an lìn soisealta againn’

    Seo Jeff Jarvis a-mach air Google Buzz, rinn e liosta de rudan a mhothaich e. Seo fear aca:

    ‘* Voice is rising in importance: You an post a buzz using only voice from your mobile device (read: while driving). This is one reason why Google has been working (through Goog411) to get better and better at voice recognition. Will the keyboard become less important? Will we post more when all we have to do is talk? Will Google then have more to organize for us?’

    Agus rudeigin eile a thuirt e ” S e an t-eadar-lìn an lin-soisealta a th’againn’:

    ‘* Social. Google has tried to attack social before and failed. Microsoftlike, it’s trying again. I am disappointed that its interface with Twitter, for example, is only one-way: I can bring Twitter into Buzz but not use Buzz to publish to Twitter. Silly. I’ve long said that the winner in social is not a site; the internet is our social network. The winner will be the company that helps us organize that. To do that, it must be open to all input and output. That’s where we should be looking with Google and Facebook. In that sense, Twitter is ahead of both of them.’

      Mòran taing airson seo, a Ghràisg. Beachdan inntinneach gun teagamh. Taing a bharrachd airson an cur chun bhlog agam fhèin cuideachd. Sin an t-àite as fheàrr airson an deasbaid seo, ma tha beachdan eile agaibh no aig daoine eile.

      It’s a fuzzy line but further general points on the pluses and minuses of audio blogging might be best directed here, while this blog is intended to focus more specifically on the Guthan nan Eilean/Island Voices project. GW.
