Audio annotations

In previous gigs, I’ve spent hours upon hours adding nice annotations and 9000 extra screens to explain a flow, usually because the people who need to review it have schedules booked for the next 6 weeks.

Someone at my current gig introduced me to Loom, which does quick audio & screen recordings. I can’t tell you how much time it saves me, and the feedback I get is usually a lot more thought-through and specific since my reviewers can re-listen to my walk-through as many times as needed, and they can easily match up screens on Figma to comment on. Since an audio chat feature was just released on Figma, I thought maybe this could be a next iteration?

Someone smarter than me would need to figure out the accessibility challenges, though, since persons with vision disabilities will have an easier time at the expense of persons with auditory disabilities.
