One of my students has developed a program to facilitate speech document sharing, similar to, but with advantages over PocketBox.
He encourages you to try it and provide feedback.

From Yunyu:

Like many of you, I've used PocketBox to share speech docs. I love the concept, but there are certain issues with the implementation that could be improved. If you're unfamiliar with the concept, it's a room-based sharing system for speech docs where you sign up for a room, give out the room code, and share documents instantly.
I wrote https://speechdrop.net/ as a side project that resolves these issues. Here are the main advantages it has over PocketBox:
   Retains filenames, doesn't add underscores or anything, supports special characters
   Supports drag-and-drop - no need to navigate to your folder every time
   Automatically refreshes documents - no need to reload the browser.
   Better UI for joining rooms and dealing with invalid codes (just type in the box)
   No ambiguous characters in room codes (e.g. I/l, O/0, etc...)
   Fully responsive, looks great when snapped to the side or on mobile devices
   Loads more quickly (the frontend is far more lightweight, ~20% of the page size)
   More secure, uses HTTPS
   Has fancy, useful animations!
I would appreciate it if you could try this out, and am grateful for any feedback!
