Classic Editor - Managing Audio Files

Audio can be added to a course in three ways: an audio track can be uploaded, text-to-speech audio can be generated, or audio can be recorded right in the LMS. For all three methods, first open the page that you want to add audio to using the Course Editor.

Uploading an Audio Track

  1. Click Manage → Manage audio.

  2. Click Upload an audio file.

  3. Click Browse.

  4. Browse to the file, select it, and click Open.

  5. Choose if you want there to be a delay before the audio plays, after the page loads. Click Save.

  6. The file will be uploaded. You can then use the controls in the dialog to play the file. Close the dialog to finish adding the file to your page.

Recording Your Own Audio

  1. Click Manage → Manage audio.

  2. Click Record Audio.

  3. Make sure your external microphone is plugged in and working. Then click Start Recording.

  4. You will see a timer counting down to when the recording will start.

  5. Record your audio. Click the recording bar to stop recording.

  6. The audio will be saved and added to the page. Watch for the Modified notification. This indicates the audio has been rendered. Now you can click on Save to save the audio you recorded.

Generating Text-To-Speech Audio 

1.     Click Manage → Manage audio.

6.     You can add a start delay for your narration using the box at the top. 



7.     When you are ready, click Save. The narration will be automatically generated and added to the page. Note that the narration is generated based on the text on the course page it is being added to. 


8.     The editing toolbar contains a menu of actions that can help you edit your narration once it has been added. These actions can be found under the TTS Tools menu. 



9.     To make a change, select the text in question on the page, and click an option from the list. 

a       You can add additional emphasis to a word or phrase using the Emphasis option.

d      You can add a break of a specified duration in between a particular sentence or paragraph using the Break option.

e      You can select what text should or should not be included in the narration under the Limit Recordable Content menu.
