Recordalife has always carried our remote life story interviews, with an option of interviewing our clients at home. For remote interviews we have used specialist phone recording systems or Skype for Internet calling. These have worked well. We have, however, been wanting to have an online video chat system that does not require apps or software to be installed on computers, but could just operate from a web link sent via email. We are therefore pleased to announce that we we are now launching our Secure Online Video Interview Systems (Recordalife SOVIS).
How It Works
Quite simply, when you book your Recordalife Life Story Interview, you can select phone, Skype, home visit or Secure Online Video Interview System (SOVIS). If you select SOVIS you will be emailed (or text message) a link for the agreed appointment time. If you click on the link (on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone) at that time you will then join a secure video (or audio only if you prefer) call via your web browser with your expert and friendly Recordalife “Life Recorder”. The call will be automatically recorded and we will then be able to quickly write your Life Story based on the detailed interview we carry out. Recordalife SOVIS will also send reminders by email and text message before the call is scheduled to tale place. There is no extra charge for using the Recordalife SOVIS call system.
Wherever You Are
This means that we can capture your Life Story and write your memoirs no matter where you are, even more easily than before.
Mike Tapia, our founder, says: “We have had a number of clients who wanted an easier system for them to join. Often our elderly clients do not have Skype, and sometimes landline calls can be of low audio quality. With Recordalife SOVIS it means that they can just click on a link in an email, and the rest is done automatically. We are often asked to interview people in quite remote areas or countries, so this makes it more convenient and possible. Also, sometimes people have reasons for not wanting a home visit. Sadly, in the case of the coronavirus outbreak currently taking place, this could well be one of those times where people do not want visitors to their homes, especially if they are in a care home or hospice. Recordalife Secure Online Video Interview System will enable us to keep capturing everyone’s amazing life stories.”
