How do I add audio to my presentation?

Brainshark offers several options for adding audio to your presentations including:  

    • Add audio via the telephone;
    • Record directly into your presentation using a microphone;
    • Add .mp3s into your uploaded slides;
    • Embed .wav files into your PowerPoint prior to uploading;
    • Computer generated audio;
    • Background audio.

Please keep in mind that audio will be added on a per-slide basis. Therefore, you record to each slide separately (and can revisit slides to re-record without altering the entire presentation's recording), and you will upload .mp3 files to each corresponding slide, not the presentation as a whole.

Adding and Managing Audio will guide you through the various ways that you can add and manage your audio files in Brainshark.

    • The maximum amount of audio that can be recorded is 20 minutes per slide, regardless of whether you record using the IVR telephone function or whether you record via microphone.
    • If you were to upload audio, you can exceed the 20 min/slide limit as long as the uploaded audio file size does not exceed 500 MB.
