Web voice mail allows to send voice messages from web sites to any existing e-mail client software, even to free web based e-mail like Hotmail and Yahoo. The recipient receives the usual e-mail message with link to Mp3 audio file. He/she can download Mp3 file and listen it by any existing Mp3 playback program.
To voice message recording on the web voice mail page the audio recording applet is used. It records in Mp3 format.
Audio recording applet is developed in Java 1.1 and does not require the Java 1.3-1.5 plug-in installation.
To Mp3 encoding/decoding the LAME Mp3 audio codec is used.
