You can edit the audio in your presentation at any time. You can listen to an audio file, insert silence, adjust volume, and change other options.
A. Insert marker B. Slide divider and Red marker line C. Waveform D. Record audio button E. Play/Pause audio button
To cut the selected portion of the audio file.
To copy the selected portion of the audio file.
To paste information from the clipboard. (For example, if you select a section of the audio file, and then click Cut or Copy, Adobe Presenter places the selected audio on the clipboard. You can then click Paste to place the audio back into any location within the audio file.)
To remove the selected portion of the audio file.
To undo the previous action.
To redo the previous action.
To enlarge or shrink the waveform.
Record Over/Insert Recording
To begin recording audio. (A microphone is required.)
To start playing the audio file.
To temporarily stop the slide from playing. (Click Play to resume playing the audio file.)
To end the playback of the audio file.
To specify the selected location, in seconds, within an individual slide on the waveform. For example, if you are working with a slide that is 5 seconds long and you click in the middle of the slide on the waveform, this playhead area displays approximately 00:00:02.500.
To specify the total playing time of the presentation, if no span of time is selected on the waveform. If you have selected a span of time on the waveform, this area displays the amount of time selected.
A quick way to listen to the audio you added to a presentation is to play the slide show directly from within the Edit Audio dialog box. Click in the Edit Audio dialog box and then click play ().
You can add a period of silence to any audio file that is part of a Adobe Presenter presentation. This feature is useful in the following situations:
If you import an audio file and must synchronize the audio with slides
If you need to make an existing audio file work in a presentation without having to edit the audio extensively
If you have inserted an FLV file with audio, such as sidebar video of a speaker, into a presentation and want to synchronize the FLV file audio with slides
To add silence:
Cursor Position (default)
This option adds silence at the point in the waveform you selected in step 3.
Start Of Slide
This option adds the silent period to the beginning of the slide containing the location selected in step 3.
End Of Slide
This option adds the silent period to the end of the slide containing the location selected in step 3.
Adobe Presenter adds the silent period to the audio file and displays the period on the waveform.
You can adjust the volume of audio files included in your presentations. After adjusting the volume, preview the presentation to see if the sound level is acceptable.
Adjusts the sound volume automatically. Normalizing audio helps keep the sound level consistent between slides.
Amplifies quiet sections of the audio to help compensate for variations in audio volume.
When you finish editing the audio file, click .
If you have created slide notes in PowerPoint, you can import the notes into the script window in the Record Audio dialog box. Importing notes is useful if you want to use the slide notes as a script when recording an audio file as voice‑over narration.
Click Adobe Presenter, and in the Audio group, click Record Audio.
In the Record Audio dialog box, click the Show Script icon ().
The slide notes are imported.
Adobe Presenter lets you edit the timing of audio files after you record or import them. Having control over the timing of audio files gives you the ability to use audio files of different lengths and incorporate them smoothly into presentations.
After you record or import an audio file, the file appears as a waveform in the Edit Audio dialog box. If your presentation contains multiple audio files, you can see which audio files are assigned to specific slides.
In the Edit Audio dialog box, Adobe Presenter displays any audio files incorporated into the presentation as waveforms. Slide numbers above the waveform show exactly how the audio files are currently distributed across the slides. Adobe Presenter lets you import or create an audio file and then distribute that audio file across multiple slides.
The waveform remains static, but you can change where the audio file begins to play within the presentation. This option is useful if you have a long audio file and need to experiment with assigning the file to one slide or having it play over multiple slides.
At times, during audio narration, you may want to explain or present content that is on another slide. In such cases, you can use the Go To Slide marker to jump to the required slide.
If you want the presentation to automatically stop at a specific point and wait for the user to continue by clicking play in the Playbar, do the following:
The audio plays from the location you selected to the end of all audio in the presentation. (You can stop the playback at any time by clicking Stop in the lower-left corner of the Edit Audio dialog box or pressing the spacebar on your keyboard.)
The scale at which you are viewing the waveform is shown in the Scale information box in the top-right corner of the dialog box.
After you have added audio files to your presentation, you can use the Edit Audio dialog box to cut or copy entire audio files or portions of audio files and paste them in a new location.
