If you want to add some quick but custom audio to your website and don't want to spend hours (or dollars) doing so, you might want to check out AudioPal, a great free service developed by OddCast - makers of the SitePal Speaking characters we've all come to know and love (or at least used to).

The web service lets you add/create audio by recording a message by phone, a microphone, and even offers a direct audio upload option. AudiopPal also offers a text to speech option (limited to 600 characters) in a variety of languages and voice types.

Users are able to preview the message and then grab a widget/player to include on your site/page. Audiopal provides the option to play the audio recording on page load but I personally advise against that.

I would expect Oddcast/AudioPal to release a pay version of this service in short order.

I would also avoid making the playing of the audio clip automatically when the page loads. It makes loading the page take a longer time, and some people detest hearing audio coming out of a page. Other than that, I think this service would be great to make your pitch feel more personal to users.
