    Question E-Card with Voice Over problem...

    Hello, I am a final year student at university studying computer science. As part of my final year project I have opted to create a website with some complexity. The main function of the website is to send an e-card with voice over to an email service or client, and this is where I am stuck. I have searched the net for solutions but cannot find any. In a nutshell I need to record someone’s voice with perhaps a flash recording widget embedded into the site, and then combine this with a jpeg image and then send it to an email service. Just to let you know I am inexperienced with PHP and need a solution. If you could help me out with this problem I would be grateful. I am trying to figure out how the server will process this, and even if JavaScript could do this instead. If you could point me in the right direction that would be enough, as I can then do some more research thoroughly.

    Thanks

    To record, try JRecoder - a neat JQuery plugin for recording.

    Well...for that you need to know how to send attachments after extracting the recording. Use the mail() PHP function or better use PHP Mailer which makes sending emails and attachments trivial.

    mail() -

    Hm, sending an audio file as an email attachment seems a little awry of the concept; It would seperate the audio and the visual quite effectively. I'm thinking a Flash object could be more effective in this case, not that I know anything about Flash myself.

    As Redcoder mentioned, the recording would be a client-side job; Be it his suggestion, Flash-based, or a combination of the two. Composing and sending the email, if you wish to do that, would be nicely handled by PHP.
