Practice Activity: Import Audio for a Single Slide

  1. If you haven't already done so, download and extract the Presenter 360 practice files on your local computer.
  2. Open the PowerPoint folder in your practice files, then open the Presenter_Practice1.pptx file in PowerPoint.
  3. Go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Import Audio.
  4. When the Import Audio window opens, select slide 2 and click Browse.
  5. Browse to the Audio folder in your practice files, select Slide 02.mp3, and click Open.
  6. Click OK to close the Import Audio window.

Tip: Do you need to split a single audio file across multiple slides? Presenter 360 can do that. See this user guide for details.

Practice Activity: Remove Existing Audio from a Slide

  1. With Presenter_Practice1.pptx still open in PowerPoint, go to the Articulate tab on the ribbon and click Import Audio.
  2. When the Import Audio window opens, select slide 2 and click Remove.
  3. Click Yes to confirm that you want to delete the existing audio.
  4. Click OK to close the Import Audio window.

Practice Activity: Import Audio for Multiple Slides All at Once

  1. Go to the Articulate tab on the ribbon and click Import Audio.
  2. When the Import Audio window opens, select slide 1 and click Browse.

    Tip: Always select the first slide where you want to import audio. In this tutorial, we want to import audio for slides 1-7. But if you don’t need audio for slide 1, select the first slide that’ll have audio.
  3. Browse to the Audio folder in your practice files, Shift+click all the MP3 files, and click OK.
  4. When the Confirm Narration Import Order window opens, use the buttons along the right edge to rearrange the audio files until they match up to the correct slides in your course.
  5. Click OK to close the Import Order window, then click OK again to close the Import Audio window.

Practice Activity: Export Audio

  1. Go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Audio Editor.
  2. When the audio editor opens, go to the File tab on the ribbon, scroll to Export, and choose either WAV or MP3.
  3. Browse to a location where you want to save your exported audio and click Select Folder.

Presenter 360 will export the audio from each slide to a separate audio file. The files will be named according to their slide numbers and titles, so you can easily recognize them.

Tip: Sometimes, you need to export audio for an entire course to a single audio file that can be used as a podcast for learners on the go. Presenter 360 can help with that. See this user guide for details.
