VoiceThread uses Identities to manage user accounts. Identities allow you to record comments under different images and names. Use this feature to go by different names in different conversations (“Professor Math” vs. “Steve”), to create a role-playing VoiceThread, or to categorize your comments by their content (use an “Instructions” Identity, a “Feedback” Identity, an “Assessment” Identity).

You can create as many Identities as you need, but all Identities are still tied to your VoiceThread account and email address.
