Soundslides: Journalists' Toolkit

A training site for multimedia and online journalists


Soundslides is an inexpensive program that allows you to create audio slideshows for the Web. It runs equally well on Mac and Windows. You can download the free demo version and pay for it later, if you decide to continue using it.

Soundslides uses the Flash player, which is a Web browser plug-in that most Internet users already have. In other words, most people will not need to download anything to view your slideshow on the Web.

Soundslides does not produce video files, and you cannot import video into Soundslides. It is a simple tool that builds simple audio slideshows. That's all.
