Articulate Quizmaker offers two ways to add audio to your quizzes: import or record. We'll review both methods below.

Importing Audio Files

Here's how to import pre-recorded audio files into Quizmaker:

  1. First, do one of the following:
    • In Slide View, go to the Insert tab. Click the Sound drop-down arrow and select Sound from File.
    • In Form View, go to the Home tab. Click the Sound drop-down arrow and select Sound from File.
  2. Navigate to the audio file you want to insert and click Open. (Tip: If you're in Slide View, you can hold down the Ctrl key to select multiple audio files to import all at once. All the audio files you select in this manner will be inserted into the same slide.) The following file formats are supported in Quizmaker:
    • AAC
    • AIF
    • AIFF
    • M4A
    • MP3
    • OGG
    • WAV
    • WMA

Recording Narration

Here's how to record narration directly into Quizmaker:

  1. First, do one of the following:
    • In Slide View, go to the Insert tab. Click the Sound drop-down arrow and select Record Mic.
    • In Form View, go to the Home tab. Click the Sound drop-down arrow and select Record Mic.
  2. The Record Microphone window opens. If you have a script that you want to use, click the Narration script button, which reveals the text from the Notes panel. (See Adding a Narration Script.)
  3. When you're ready to begin recording, click the Record button.
  4. When you've finished recording, click the Stop recording button.
  5. You can preview your recording, using the Play/Pause and Rewind buttons.
  6. If you need to record your narration again, just click the Record button to start over. If you want to delete your narration altogether, click the Delete button.
  7. If you change your mind about recording narration and would prefer to import audio instead, click the Import audio file button. Navigate to the audio file you want to insert and click the Open button.
  8. If you want to edit the audio you just recorded, click the Edit audio button to launch the built-in Audio Editor. For more information on using the Audio Editor, see this tutorial.
  9. Click the Save button to add the newly recorded audio to your quiz. (Also, be sure to save your overall quiz file to retain the changes you just made.)
