    Hi,

    You can check the "Audio" section of our widgets page here: http://widgets.jotform.com/category/audio.

    A sample of this widget is the "Voice Recorder" widget where you can do an audio recording.

    The data of your submissions  can be uploaded directly to other 3rd party file sharing and storage services like Dropbox, you can check this guide on how to do that: http://www.jotform.com/help/77-Upload-to-Dropbox-with-JotForm. Unfortunately, for the "Voice Recorder" widget, it only attaches the link of the audio file where you can download it and not the actual file itself.

    I could forward a feature request to our widget team so that they can add an option to directly upload the file to Dropbox, if you are looking for that function please do let us know.

    Kind regards.

    Unfortunately, I'm unable to give you an exact date to when this will be implemented or even be considered, this will depend on the development team's workload right now. But rest assure that they will be informed about this request. We will update you on this thread when we hear any news.

    Kind regards.
