HelloLinko.com supports iPad, iPhone using HTML5 Audio!

Well, my project that allows you to share, read, and listen to Google Voice Transcripts is taking off decently!

I’ve recently added HTML5 Support to the site. Now, virtually every modern device should be able to listen to Voicemail audio! iPhones and iPads are supported via HTML5 directives, while older or less awesome browers (IE?) use a Flash plugin. If all else fails… I just provide a download link.

HTML5 is the latest version of the Hypertext markup language approved by the W3C. HTML5 audio players allow for embedded audio played directly from the browser, without any 3rd party support such as Adobe Flash or Real Media.

Try it out and let me know how the HTML5 support works!

Let’s face it… we should be embracing anything that allows us to take a few steps away from Flash, which for years has had a creepy strangle on web-embedded multimedia.
