Did you know that a third of podcast listening is done on a desktop or laptop computer? Wouldn't it be great to give those listeners access to your visualizations, searchable databases and DocumentCloud embeds? Now you can. SlideTrack is a new, open source project that allows you to annotate audio with documents, photos, graphics, text and embeds. Plus, it's so simple that even an editor can do it.
