For best results, confirm that your microphone is working correctly with your computer and Premiere Elements before narrating a clip.
Using your computer’s microphone, you can narrate clips while previewing them in the Monitor panel. Your narration is then added to the Narration soundtrack visible in either the Quick view timeline or the Expert view timeline.
- For best results, turn off your computer speakers to prevent feedback. To monitor sound while you narrate, plug headphones into your computer and deselect Mute Audio While Recording.
If your speakers are turned on, move as close to the microphone as possible, and keep the microphone as far away from the speakers as possible to prevent feedback.
An audio clip containing your narration is added to the Project Assets panel and to the Narration track in the Quick view timeline or the Expert view timeline (below the selected clip).
If you do not click the Stop button, recording automatically stops at the beginning of the next file in the Narration track, or 30 seconds past the end of the last clip in the Quick view timeline or the Expert view timeline.

In the Quick view timeline, select the clip containing the narration you want to change. Then, in the Monitor panel, drag the current-time indicator to the location where the old narration begins.
