imported audio: crisp in the Audio Editor but warbly if published
Hi folks --
I am importing some audio files for narrative on some slides. (I have been given WAV files, in this case. I am not sure if that is relevant here.)
I go to a slide, and use Insert... Sound from file to insert the wav file into the presentation.
-- Then, if I doubleclick the audio in the timeline to see the storyline Audio Editor, and play there, the audio sounds as crisp as can be.
-- But when I either "preview" the slide OR when I publish it, the audio sounds warbly/underwater/faintly echoey, as if it had been converted at a weak bitrate.
I have used articulate a lot, and I don't remember it doing this, but I have until now been recording with the built-in articulate recorder, not importing.
-- Is this normal?
-- Are there conditions under which this "audio becoming lower quality" can be made less pronounced? can I improve it with some setting or technique?
