Yahoo Audio Search Adds Inline Previews

The Yahoo Search Blog announced they have added inline audio samples to their audio search feature.

So now when you do a search on free bird, you can listen to a quick sample before clicking for more.

You simple click on “Play Sample” and you should hear the audio come out of your speakers.

You can stop playing the sample at any time.

Here is a screen capture: Yahoo Audio Search Sample

    Placing the Charlie Daniels version of “Free Bird” ahead of Lynyrd Skynryd version shows that Yahoo has a long way to go in serving up quality search results:.)
