Migrating to WebRTC for Audio


The first embeddable question that Learnosity created allowed an easy and seamless way for audio capture to be included in assessment.  We use Flash as it’s is was the only technology that allowed us to do this.   However Google have been pushing the WebRTC standard and we’ve been tracking that closely.  Recently enough of the standard has been implemented in Chrome (for desktop) that we’ve been able to replicate the functionality that Flash has been providing and which will allow us to make audio recording more seamless and prevalent.  We expect that Chrome on Android will be functional in the very near future at which point we’ll be integrating this into our core platform.  Check out our current WebRTC demo.

Update: On android platform Firefox Beta and Chrome Beta now support this functionality.
