Crowdfund audio recording and playback in LibreOffice presentations!

LibreOffice’s presentation tool, Impress, includes a bunch of features for home and office use. But one thing that’s missing is recording and playback for audio comments in presentations.

This feature is important in eLearning: in contrast to video recordings, audio recordings are stored per slide, and can be adjusted to match the individual pace of the presentation. This is particularly suitable in school, academic as well as corporate environments to make learning content and product presentations more interactive.

So, how can we get this feature in LibreOffice? Well, the CH Open association, which has been promoting open systems and standards in the Swiss ICT landscape for over 40 years, is organising a crowdfunding campaign to implement the feature. The project is estimated to cost €62,000 in total – with various milestones along the way.
