AudioPal is a free website that enables you to easily add audio to your blog or website.
Users can record and use their own voice on their website, or select from numerous voices available on AudioPal. If you select to use a pre-recorded voice, you simply type in the text of what you want your visitors to hear. If you want to hear you own voice, you can record via microphone or upload an audio file. (US users can dial a US phone number and record audio via the telephone.)
You are then emailed a code to that lets you access a widget that can be embedded into your site. There is an example in the right hand side of this blog. (For edublogs or globalteacher, select “other” and “embed” to get the correct code to embed.) Here is an example:
AudioPal also has speaking characters, similar to Vokis.

Perhaps it has been blocked in your institution? I have tried it on a few different computers and connections and they have all worked. Thanks for letting me know.
