Some serious work needs to be done on the sound for the videos on this site (the introduction and tutorial videos).

The commentator has her mouth too close to the microphone and the sound has been compressed too much this results in a lot of 'artefacts' in the high treble range (or 'annoying tinkly high pitched ear-hurty noises' to those who don't understand my technobabble).

Rerecord the commentary making sure that the mid-range part of the sound signal is highest in the mix to enhance 'warm' tones in the voice. Don't eat the microphone and preferably use a 'pop-shield' between your mouth and the microphone.

The amateur quality of the sound slightly mars the professionalism of the rest of the site.
