To change how audio files are distributed across slides, click a slide divider and move it to the left or right. The waveform remains static, but you change where the audio file begins to play within the Adobe Captivate project. This option is particularly 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.
To listen to audio, click a location within the waveform and then click Play Audio. The audio plays from the location you selected to the end of all the audio in the project. (You can stop the playback at any time by clicking Stop.)
To zoom in on a particular area of the waveform, click in the waveform and then drag the zoom slider bar.
To cut or copy and paste audio, select a section of an audio file directly in the waveform, click Cut Selection or Copy Selection, click in a different location on the waveform, and click Paste Selection.
To delete audio, select a section of an audio file directly in the waveform and click Delete.
You can insert a silent period within an audio file. If you want the silent period to begin in a specific location within an audio file, click the location directly in the waveform. Click Insert silence. Type in the length of the silent period you want to add and then select from the pop-up menu a location for the silent period: the location you clicked in the waveform, the beginning of audio, or the end of audio.
To adjust the sound level of audio files, click Adjust Volume. Use the slider bar to increase or decrease the volume and select audio processing options.
To set recording device and audio quality options, click Settings.
To add a new audio file, click a location within the waveform, click Library, navigate to a file, and click Open. The audio file is imported directly into the Adobe Captivate project in the location you specified.
