Create and Share Voice Recordings Easily

Check out this FREE and easy feedback tool!

Imagine grading your student's work online and wishing you could provide your feedback verbally rather than typing it. Let's say, for example, you're reading a student paper typed in a Google Doc. You can add written comments in the margin, right? With the help of SpeakPipe, you can also record your voice explaining your feedback and paste the URL to your voice recording directly into the Google Doc comment box!



Why not just use a voice recorder app that's on your mobile phone or on your computer? SpeakPipe lets you save to their server so all you have to deal with is a URL rather than an audio file. What that means is NO uploading/downloading files for you or your recipients.

Follow these simple steps:


  • Go to https://www.speakpipe.com/voicerecorder
  • Click "Start Recording"
  • Click "Save on Server" 
  • Name your recording (optional) and Save it
  • Copy the link to your recording and paste it where you'd like
It's that easy!



Copy the link to the recording.

This English teacher was looking for a way for her students to record their voice. 

We recommended SpeakPipe, of course! Here are Michelle's students using SpeakPipe.

  1. Sweet! I've just been using the 'Voice Recorder' on my iPhone or the 'Sound Recorder' on my PC. I like that it will let me link to the file.

  2. I tried this app/website last week with a CAP writing project. The students were excited to record themselves, and so stayed engaged 80-90% of the time. Of 11 students, I know 2 for certain were able to recognize mistakes and find places that needed to be revised. The others I observed only making minor changes and revisions, but even just re-reading their writing is still a huge leap of progress for them! I will definitely do this again next year, probably for all of our writing assignments!
