Hi there Captivate community, I have been using
Captivate for 3 weeks and thrilled with it's ease of use and
I had managed to create some pretty nice demos with it. My
only problem so far has been my inability to have consistent audio
volume thru-out the demo.
I record audio for each slide, with the use of a hand held
mike- same one I use for my voice recognition program(Dragon)
Cannot get consistent volume from slide to slide- Audio
options appear to be on "normalize" by default- but one slide's
audio volume is different than the next- is it the equipment that I
am using- do I need something different to record audio with??
Any input appreciated
I strongly suggest a headset microphone instead of your
handheld (does Naturally Speaking
really suggest that?). The deal is, a headset with a boom
mic allows you to place the mic, adjust it, and you know that it
will remain perfectly in place until you take it off your head.
I do my audio as my last major step in creating a movie,
going from slide-to-slide using the forward arrows on the
slide-audio dialog. I do all audio at once, to avoid the temptation
of "putting off some work until tomorrow" only to wake up
*tomorrow* with a sore throat. If that happens the only thing I
could do to get consistency was to wait until the throat is feeling
redo the entire thing from scratch - arrggh!.
Best of luck - and WELCOME to the Captivate User Community.
