ABC Radio interview with Paula d'Santos and Gavin Reese of MWWG .
This radio interview takes 12 minutes, but there is no wait for loading and buffering, even though the MP3 sound file is 10.3 Mg.
To illustrate the interview we attached the MP3 to a Flash file of a slide show of nine photos about the subject with random transitions between the photos.
Business owners can record their own message and use photos of their products or shop.
We charge clients $60 + GST for 5 photos and a sound file, plus $5 per each additional photo.
This is a one-time cost and webmasters can change the sound filename, photo filenames, photo sizes, background, individual transitions and timing of individual photos by just editing an XML text file.
The slide show can be with or without thumbnails. We currently have 68 different photo transition effects.
Compare this with the talking cartoon robot figure that greets visitors to some websites, speaking in a very un-Australian voice, for which business owners pay a monthly charge.
