Vocaroo

A free voice recording service. You do not need to register. You only need a microphone. After recording your message, remember to save the file if you need it for a longer period of time. Vocaroo does not provide permanent storage. There is not a definite age at which messages are deleted, however it is likely messages will expire after a few months. If you want to share your recording, you have to copy and paste the link under where it says "Sharing options".

Evaluation: Vocaroo is a simple audio recording service that can be used by both teachers and students. It allows you to record your voice, play it back to listen, and then provides you with a web link or the code to embed an icon into a webpage or blog. It also allows you to email your recording or download and save the file to your computer. It’s probably the easiest tool for audio recording out there — no registration is required. The one disadvantage to Vocaroo is that the recordings are deleted after a month or two. If the file you create is meant to be used longer than that, download and save it to your computer.
 
Cost: Free without registration
