Is it possible to record audio from within an EWB app? If so, could someone point me in the right direction, please?

Thanks,

Theoretically yes but practically last i checked it's a tricky one.

EWB is a javascript app so you need to look at things like WebRTC (http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/getusermedia/intro/).

It's not surfaced in EWB directly at this time but you could use external interfaces. I have no doubt Tim is considering adding this more directly as well.

There is also the browser support which is not great - http://caniuse.com/#search=getUserMedia

And of course user will have to provide permissions which could make it unusable when they so no.

If you're doing this with a wrapper like Cordova/Phonegap then it might be doable but don't expect it to work with 'regular" user who might or might not even have an updated browser.

Yeah it looks hard.
Probably not worth it just yet.

Cheers.
