I don’t know how long it’s been around, and I wasn’t willing to slog through
the registration forms for the discussion forum to pinpoint a date, but the new
version of Wink, I’m happy to
report, is built to include sound with each frame of the screencast.
Purely for kicks, I went ahead and pieced together an experimental
fizzcast to see just how well the new Wink works.
I know, I know. I can’t say much for the fizzcast itself, but I am
encouraged about the possibilities involving an easy-to-use and free podcasting
app. From what I could tell, Wink grabs the audio as a wav file. The
sound editing options are skimpy, but it would be easy enough to edit the wav
file in Audacity then re-associate it with the screen capture. The audio
files are handled separately for each frame in the podcast, making it easy to
give 20-40 seconds bites on each slide.
