My goal was to embed audio in a recent news story.
I’ve been inspired by newspaper’s being creative and adding the richness of sound in their text stories.
My story was filled with emotion. It focused on people of faith cremating loved ones and burying the remains in memorial gardens on church grounds.
I recorded the interviews and intended to embed the files, hosted on Soundcloud, into my news story. It was as simply as hyperlinking the text to the site. Not hard, but alas a hiccup on our website screwed up the plan.
A tentative Plan B is to instead feature the audio on a blog post.
