Post by voice in WordPress

Let's see, I do not mean that you see your WordPress on the phone not even that post "from" your phone iPhone Android or Blackberry I mean post by phone to your blog, with the voice . Do you find it incredible ?, since in LifeJournal can be done some time ago, and from now on in, I guess soon using some plugin in our sites with WordPress hosted. [19659003] The system implanted in which you can access from the menu of " My blogs " ( /index.php?page=my-blogs) once activated, use the system Twilio an application in the cloud of voice communications.

Once enabled, you can call the number of phone listing on the "My blogs" screen, enter your secret code when prompted and follow the instructions. You can even regenerate the secret code as many times as you need to guarantee an adequate level of security.

There is some peculiarity of the service that you should keep in mind:

  • The maximum duration of the call is 1 hour, although Automattic does not dismiss charging for the service in the future.
  • If there is 10 seconds of silence the recording ends.
  • You do not need to update your space account in to use "Publish by voice"
  • Normal call prices apply (but be aware that the phone is international, so it's not viable for most mortals from outside the US)

The result is your recorded voice message and published in your post, and also available as RSS podcast. You can, like any other, be sent to Facebook or Twitter thanks to the functionality also included in, like any other entry.

As you can see, the service is not for most of us, very expensive from outside the US, but it opens a really interesting world of possibilities. I, of course, am eager to publish by voice, but for the moment I am going to contain myself.

NOTICE : this publication is from two years ago or more. If it's a code or a plugin it might not work in the latest versions of WordPress, and if it's a news story it might be obsolete. Then do not say we have not warned you.
