Audio doesn't sound as good when published

If your published audio doesn't sound as good as the audio that you imported or recorded, it's likely due to the fact that Articulate generates MP3 files to create the slide SWF files. This means that audio is in a lossy format, compressed for online delivery. It won't sound like CD quality by default, but you can modify the audio bitrate. Here's how:

  1. Go to Presentation Options > Quality.
  2. Select Custom (Advanced).

This will allow you to adjust the Audio bitrate used in your published output. If you'll be hosting content online, we don't recommend exceeding 64 kbps as this can result in playback issues.
