Very simple, unique and exciting plugin that allows the bloggers to link an image to an audio file through the Media Library. Automatically, a little play icon will be added on your images in your posts. That way, you can give another dimension to your images thanks to sounds, music or voice-over. Here is a very simple example.

Of course, you can also have it in a gallery, or anywhere else! Below, only the last photo has sound, but we could have added it to all of them.


On WordPress: Audio Story Images

How it works

Simply attach an image to an audio file or vice-versa in the Media Library.


Since I love the concept, I am trying to gathers ideas of what you can do with this plugin.

  • Tell an audio story behind each image rather than text (the text should focus on SEO instead, be an excerpt of the story)
  • Use cinemagraphs instead of normal images  and have the audio track synchronized with it
  • Write a post with photos taken around your home, with the associated background audio
  • Write a post with portraits, each of them will say a simple sentence with their own voice
  • Etc…
