In Articulate Replay, you can import sound files, record narration, or both.

About Replay's Dual Tracks

Since Replay uses two tracks, you can add sound to one or both tracks. Audio clips will initially be added to the end of track A, but you can move them. Just drag them to the track and location you want. See Rearranging Objects for details.

Importing Sound Files

To import a sound file, do the following:

  1. On the Replay ribbon, click the Sound drop-down arrow, and choose Sound from File.
  2. Browse to the sound file you want to import, and click Open. Replay supports the following audio formats:
    • AAC
    • AIF
    • AIFF
    • M4A
    • MP3
    • OGG
    • WAV
    • WMA

You can import as many sound files as you like into a Replay project. Repeat the steps above for additional files.
