Vocaroo: Voice Recording

Are you a teacher of young children or have students that need to hear verbal directions? You can make a voice recording at vocaroo.com and turn your recording into a QR code. You can then save the QR code as an image and insert it in to a document. Students can scan the QR code with their iDevice and listen to your directions. Click here to see how.
