And I know what you’re thinking: Doesn’t a photograph already tell a thousand words? And if so, why do you need accompanying audio?
That’s a very valid point, but one problem we detected early on is that people are getting sick and tired of looking at photos out of context without an explanation of what makes them stand out. And yes, we could type that out for each photo, but just like you can’t walk and chew gum at the same time (studies say most can’t) you can’t read a caption and look at a photograph at the same time. But here’s the catch: You can look at a photograph and listen to audio at the same time.
So yes, a picture tells a thousand words. And in the case of our photo galleries, they also speak.
