Hello, I recorded audio on one of my Captivate 2017 slides but would like to remove it. When I pull up the audio I see the buttons Audio, Edit and Closed Caption. Both the Edit and the Closed Caption tabs are grayed out and I cannot access them. What do I need to do to delete and/or edit my narration? Thank you.

Which type of audio? If it is slide audio, you see the audio timeline under the slide timeline. Select that timeline and use the DEL key.

It if it object audio, look in the properties of the object, tab Options, and you can delete the audio there.

Hi there, unfortunately I am not sure what type of audio. When I click on the object and go to audio I only have the option of adding audio so I believe it is slide audio however I do not see an audio timeline. Where is that? Thank you.

I have it deleted Lilybiri thank you. When I record a narration the voice seems to echo. Is there a certain way to add a narration? Thank you.

Echo is not added by Captivate. How did you record the audio?

Hi Lilybiri,

Thank you for all your help with this. For the Object audio under Properties I just clicked "add audio" and hit record then recorded the message Should I have done it differently?

Starting recording can also be done with Audio menu, Record to.... Be sure to select the correct option, as I told before, for narration choose 'to Slide', not to object.

If you have echo, this can be due to your setup: environment, correct settings for microphon, quality of the mike etc... Captivate has only a limited set of editing possibilities. I prefer to use a dedicated audio application. in this case Adobe Audition. But there is a good free alternative, Audacity.
