Do you outsource your voice talent? Or maybe you record narration in a separate app? No problem. Just import your audio files into Articulate Presenter 360.

Importing Multiple Audio Files at the Same Time

Using the audio importer, you can import audio files one at a time or multiple audio files for multiple slides all at once.

  1. Go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Import Audio.
  2. Select the first slide where you want to import audio, then click Browse at the bottom of the window. (You can also double-click a slide to open the browse window.)
  3. Locate the file(s) you want to import and click Open. (Use Ctrl+Click to select multiple audio files. Each audio file will be imported to a separate slide. See the next step to rearrange the import order.)

    Although Presenter supports a wide range of audio file formats (see below), not all codecs and bitrates work. For best results, we recommend 16-bit 44 KHZ PCM WAV.

    Presenter supports these file formats:
    • AAC
    • AIF
    • AIFF
    • M4A
    • MP3
    • OGG
    • WAV
    • WMA
  4. If you selected multiple audio files in the previous step, you'll be asked to confirm the import order. Use the buttons on the right edge of the window to rearrange the import order, then click OK.
  5. When you’re finished, click OK to close the Import Audio window.

Tip: If you change your mind about the audio files you imported, just select the slides where you want to remove the audio and click Remove at the bottom of the window.
