Add instant interactivity and interest to your teacher website with AudioPal.  AudioPal is a free online tool that creates an audio player that can be embedded on your website.  You can record your audio by phone or microphone, you can upload an audio file, or you can use AudioPal's text to speech function.  Then just preview your audio, enter your email address and you will get an embed code to place the audio on your website.
