JQuery HTML5 Audio Slideshows
We’ve been talking to a lot of users lately and one of the biggest requests we get is when we’re going to release a JQuery HTML5 version of the Soundslides player. Most people are surprised to know that Soundslides is already JQuery and HTML5 compliant. This means that your projects will play back on mobile devices like the iPad and iPhone just as well as they do through your web browser. Included with the latest version (1.9.5) is the iOS_HTML5 shell which outputs your project with the required files.
Here are a couple of screenshots showing the JQuery HTML5 audio slideshow player along side the Flash version. The beauty of the Soundslides solution is that the project will play back using Flash when available and use the HTML5 version as a fallback. This ensures the user experience is the best it can be.
Here’s an example link to a project posted on our Soundslides Hosting Service (Free 6 month trial)
As you can see, they look almost identical and they function identical too!
