For fans of SlideShare, today’s news that the service is opening up the possibility to synchronise audio files with all slide show presentations might bring a sigh of relief rather than a great hurrah.
The YouTube-style site has been building up a community of users since it began allowing people to upload PowerPoint or Open Office presentations last October. Content ranges from show reels of holiday snaps, baby pics and business presentations. But until now it has all been done in silence.
Well at last SlideShare is going to be available in stereo. Users can synch the audio for their presentations or simply upload an MP3 of a recorded speech. SlideShare is already a great resource but it’s always frustrating watching pictures without sound. Unless it’s a James Blunt video. This addition should really get the service rocking.
