add facility of voice recording in my website

P: 3
Hi all
I want to add the facility of recording voice in my website. I want to provide this facility to both the users of Windows as well as Linux. The voice recorded would be send through a e-mail to a pre defined Email-id. I will be so thankful if anyone would help me in writing the source code using PHP for recording the voice online.
thanks and regards.

Welcome to The Scripts.

PHP will not be able to provide this functionality alone. You will need to use a client-side tool, written in one of the many client-side languages, such as Flash or Java, in order to capture input from the user's computer.

Hi
I think it will be more suitable to use flash in comparison to Java as java is not installed in all the systems.
Whats about using windows voice recorder for the purpose.

The problem with Flash is that it is not supported on all systems. Are people still having problems installing it with IE7? I know Linux hasn't had a release since Flash 7.

Using Windows Voice recorder is making three critical assumptions: Your users are all using Windows, have it installed, and know how to use it.

There are web solutions that provide voice recording. It would be a hinderance to insist your users record their own clips to upload.

My site is on PHP and I have never before used php with java. that's why i am not quite sure about implementing it in Java.
My problem is that some of my website users are linux based and some others are windows based. Some of them are not well known to english and use their local languages only but use the facilities of our site. I am well known to those local languages also, thats why I want to provide voice recording facility to them for their comments.
To detect whether the OS is windows or linux I would use a script and according to it I would use different tools to record voices.
Would you please suggest me some web solutions for the purpose, or any source code that would help me in writing such a program.
