Introducing Talking Image - the JavaScript library to 'unmute' GIF animations.


Ever wished you could add a piece of sound to a GIF animation? Talking Image makes it possible now on all modern browsers. See it to believe it.

The project has been published on GitHub, check it out.

A laptop to confirm what you are seeing and hearing is real.
