The Disability Visibility Project™ received a few questions from people about the StoryCorps app that is now available on the iTunes App store and from Google Play store. If you are interested in using the app, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Yes, you can record your story for the Disability Visibility Project using the StoryCorps app! The app works on a computer or smartphone.
- To get started, use this helpful guide, 5 Steps to Recording Your StoryCorps App Interview
- For more information on how to get started, using the app, and how to upload your recording to the app: https://storycorps.zendesk.com/hc/en-us
- Important detail: When you upload your story with your phone or computer, go to section #7, “Add your interview to a community.” Select Disability Visibility Project™ from the list of communities. This will allow us to find your story with others recorded for the DVP.
- PLEASE NOTE: The DVP may produce short blog posts and audio clips from stories you submit to this community on the StoryCorps app.
- You can also add specific keywords such as as “Disability Visibility Project.”
- All recordings posted to the app will be archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
