How it Works


This web-based app allows you to instantly share your recorded LAC with participants inside a meeting during a Zoom* conference.

A host can create a meeting and invite participants. A participant will receive an email from the host. Participants can join the meeting directly from the invite email. After signing up, anyone can host a meeting.


Becoming a Host:

After signing up, you will be taken to your Dashboard, where you can create a meeting. A host only needs to name the meeting to create it. A video conference link may optionally be added to the meeting.

To create a meeting, go to the Create Meeting panel and type in a name for the meeting. The meeting name will be used to generate a link to the meeting. To add an optional meeting link, paste the Zoom* link into the meeting input. When finished, click the Create Room button.

After the meeting is created, hosts will be able to invite participants to the meeting with their email addresses. Email addresses can be added individually or in batch by clicking the Invite link for the meeting. Clicking the invite link will open the menu with an input to add email addresses. Click the Invite Participants button to send the invites and add participants to the meeting.


Becoming a Participant:

Participants will receive an email from a host. Clicking on the meeting link will take the participant to the meeting. A login will be required to enter, if not logged in already. After signing up and logging in, a participant will be able to add sounds. Sounds will appear in all meetings and can be re-recorded at any time.

A participant can enter a meeting without using a meeting link directly. After logging in, participants will be directed to their Dashboard. If the participant has been invited to a meeting, the meeting will appear in the Your Rooms panel of the Dashboard.


To record your 3 second sounds, click on the Record button for each sound. Make sure to click allow if the web browser asks for permission. After the Record button is clicked, there will be 3 seconds before recording starts. Click on Re-Record to change your recording.
