Not many news stories take advantage of it, but audio can significantly add quality to an article. Voices give more emotion and realism to the story, and one example of such work is this story about a woman calling 911 about a spider. The story seems absolutely absurd just reading through it, but the SoundCloud rationalizes the story completely. The woman explains that she understands the ridiculousness of the situation, but regardless she says she desperately requires help. The audio also allows people to relate to the story more. Many people are afraid of spiders and can connect with the woman who called 9/11 through her description of the situation. Without the audio, the story would be a lot less human and would’ve had less credibility as a whole.
