Fotobabble lets users create "talking photos" that are completely web-based. Users upload a photo or image, click "record" to record their voices through the computer's microphone and then click to save and share their new, audio-captioned photos. It's a great resource for language teachers and ELL teachers. It's also useful for teachers and students to use in presentations or on blogs to make the content more engaging. Fotobabbles can be embedded in blog post or on websites.
