This project is not covered by Drupal’s security advisory policy.

The Social Speech module allows users to interact with your site content by highlighting and clicking individual sentences within a block of text. It also provides options that permit users to submit feedback about that sentence and share it via social network services.

This module was built by the White House for the State of the Union Address in 2013. Please see for a demonstration.

End User Features

  • On hover, individual sentences are highlighted.
  • On click, a modal dialog is displayed to the user. The modal may contain:
    • Facebook and Twitter share links, specific to the selected sentence.
    • Custom content (specified by CSS selector)
    • A webform. The Social Speech Webform submodule adds support for AJAX submission.

Developer Features

  • Social Speech provides two hooks, which permit developers to modify the editing and display of Social Speech nodes:
    • hook_social_speech_presave()
    • hook_social_speech_view()
  • Social speech also provides "jQuery hooks," which allow developers to respond to jQuery events.
