Digital and online journalism lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire Andy Dickinson yesterday blogged about how journalists can use Slideshare and Windows Movie Maker to produce audio slideshows. Dickinson outlines, for example, how to combine a presentation file with an audio file (via platforms like AudioBoo or SoundCloud) to produce an audio slideshow in Slideshare.

See the full post here.

On this topic,’s latest tool of the week was Story Wheel, which enables users to create audio slideshows.

Also, our podcast last week, which looked at visual storytelling, included some pointers on producing audio slideshows from Peter Sale, a multimedia producer at the Guardian, where he said they tend to use SoundSlides or in some cases Final Cut Pro.

    Hi. Thanks for making me tip of the day!

    Soundslides is a great app and would be a first choice for me but the requirement for some kind of hosting can often stump people without access to the a server. That said I do believe there is a beta product by soundlsides where they will host for you.

    Won’t solve the problem of embedding within though.
