Sound recordings can now be uploaded as part of a story. You can add one recording as MP3 of up to 2MBytes (usually between one and two minutes) to a story. If a recording exists for a story, it will play automatically when a user opens the full story view and the sound will repeat when it reaches the end.
Here are two examples of stories with sound: Competing Chinese Opera and Mountain Water.
We hope to hear many recordings of ambient sound from places all around the world, but I’m sure you will find other uses for this feature. Maybe a short spoken word piece? We can’t wait to see & hear what you come up with!
However, the MapSkip team would like to point out our no-tolerance policy on copyright infringement - please DO NOT upload copyrighted music. We’d hate to lose a user over something like that.
