NameCoach: Add name recording to email and social media

This article shows you how to invite others to listen to how your name is pronounced by recording a Personal Name Badge in NameCoach and add it your email signature and social media profiles. This is a free service that NameCoach offers independently of the College's license; individuals can continue to use their Personal Name Badges after they leave the college and recordings you create for it are not automatically added to Moodle courses or Bryn Mawr College events that use NameCoach.

Create a NameBadge

  1. Go to NameCoach's NameBadge webpage -- it shows some sample Name Badges if you need ideas.
  2. Click Get Your Name Badge
  3. Enter your email address (you can use your college or personal email.)

Note: Email is the only required field and it is only used to create your account; it won't be visible on your Name Badge.

  1. Add your First name, Last name and any other information you want to include on your NameBadge. These fields are optional and you can edit this information later. Feel free to skip anything you are not sure about.  
  2. Choose how you want to record:
    • Phone. Enter your phone number, then click Submit and Call Me. NameCoach will call that number and prompt you to say your name for the recording (as if you were recording a voicemail message).
    • Web Recorder.  Record within current window: click  Record, wait until the countdown ends, then click Stop.
    • Uploader. Drag a audio file of a recording you've already made to the upload window or click Browse for file to select it from your computer, then click Submit and Finish. (The max file size is only 150KB and .MP3 files work best.)
  3. Click Submit
  4. Once your account is created, you will see the My NameBadge page, as shown below, where you can preview and edit the various elements of your name badge.
