Feature Request: Audio Recorder

  1. Hello,

    I'm using Gravity Forms on my Wordpress site with Cart66. One of the things some of my customers will need to submit is an audio file. In searching (and searching!) for a solution that will simplify the process for the customer, I discovered a plugin from Evoca. The problem: their recorder requires Flash. Due to the nature of my upcoming business (arvertise.net), it's safe to assume that many of my customers will be using iOS devices.

    It would be extremely awesome if you could integrate an audio recorder that's included within the Gravity Forms plugin. The MP3 files could automatically be saved within the comments area, awaiting approval to keep the files private.

    Thanks for your consideration... you guys ROCK!

    Best Regards & a Happy New Year!

  3. The best way to achieve this would be to integrate the Twilio voicemail feature into the existing Gravity Forms Twilio add-on, as discussed here 18 months ago:

    Unfortunately, as Carl Hancock explained, the holdup way back then was that they were busy working on their mystery product, which turned out to be the still unreleased digital downloads plugin, Gravity Charge, sort of like Pippin Williamson's Easy Digital Downloads and the many other similar products that have been released since Gravity Charge was first announced.

    Personally, I think that integrating a webcam video recorder (which, of course, would also be able to accept audio recordings) would be far more useful, because it could be used to verify the identity of the form submitter, as discussed here:

    Sadly, that discussion is even older, 40 months old now. Gravity Forms is a great product but it is sad that the original energy behind it dissipated before so many useful possibilities could be pursued. Gravity Charge might turn out to be wonderful (in fact, coming this late to market, it needs to be) but the missed opportunity cost has been massive.
