Hearing from the White House in a New Way
05:13 PM EDT
The White House is always looking for new ways to help Americans engage with President Obama and the rest of his administration, so we're excited to launch our official presence on SoundCloud -- a social platform devoted to sharing sounds, including recorded speeches and music.
We record thousands of hours of audio here, and while many speeches and recordings are already on WhiteHouse.gov and our YouTube channel, we're excited to have a new way to share those recordings with the American people.
SoundCloud allows us to embed those sound files right on WhiteHouse.gov, and users on SoundCloud can leave time-specific comments right in the waveform (the visual representation of the sound file). Here are President Obama's remarks from last week on moving the country forward and keeping taxes low for the middle class:
Make sure you visit soundcloud.com/WhiteHouse, where we've posted some of the President's most well-known speeches in an easy-to-download format. We've even gone back to some of the President's speeches and re-encoded them in higher quality using the original recordings.
Here's what you can find on our SoundCloud page right now:
- The President's Weekly Addresses
- President Obama's inaugural address
- All of President Obama's speeches to Congress
- The President's 10 most-watched speeches
- The First Lady and Dr. Biden's speeches for Let's Move and Joining Forces
