Social Shares: Top audio/photo slideshows chosen by ONA’s community

By on December 22, 2011

Inspired by a post that recommended an alternative to using Soundslides to create audio/photo slideshows, we asked our community on Twitter and Tumblr what they thought were the best audio/ photo slideshows.

Here are the links to the slideshows they recommended, in no particular order. These slideshows are excellent examples of digital storytelling.

Did we miss something? Let us know other audio/photo slideshows you like in the comments.
