Evoca Intros Podcasting Service For Spanish Users

Aug 22nd, 2006 | By | Category: General, Podcasting Services

EvocaEvoca, a Web service that lets users create, organize, share and search consumer-generated audio, has introduced a Spanish language site. Web users with a Spanish-language browser will automatically view Evoca.com in Spanish. A link on each page lets users switch from English to Spanish.Evoca members can make digital recordings of any length with any telephone, or use Evoca’s in-browser recorder with a computer microphone. The digital audio (MP3) recordings can be shared through podcasting, e-mail, social networking profiles such as MySpace, e-commerce listings such as eBay, blogs, and websites.

“Even with the initial site in English, many of the recordings on the site are in Spanish,” said Diego Orjuela, Evoca’s co-founder and COO. Orjuela notes, “I’m not surprised based on what I know about Latino and Hispanic culture that Evoca would be a popular way for people to be in contact with family and friends. That and the fact that Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world made it logical for us to launch the site in Spanish as the next language after English.”

Evoca makes dedicated telephone numbers available in a number of U.S. metropolitan areas that have large Hispanic populations. Cities with their own numbers include Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, DC.

“We created Evoca with the goal of empowering voices everywhere through a marriage of the telephone and the Internet, which have no boundaries,” according to co-founder and CEO, Murem Sharpe. “Evoca is the vanguard of sites that empower the mainstream to create their own content on the Internet.”
