Vaestro is a site which provides software that hosts an “audio forum” for your website in lieu of a regular forum in which only text is exchanged. Adding Vaestro to your site is easy; simply a matter of cutting and pasting the provided HTML snippets; Vaestro will then appear as a button on your site which links directly to the forum.
Once a visitor is in the forum, he or she will be able to have his or her voice heard across an unlimited audience; Vaestro doesn’t cap the number of participants in a forum. If you are the master of a Vaestro forum (called a “channel”, you’ll have access to recordings of old conversation and have the ability to control who talks and for how long; you can change speakers somewhat like you would change channels with a remote. Anyone can create a channel as long as you register, and each channel is part of an “audio web” of voices which comprises the Vaestro community
