Premiere Elements 13 on what computer operating system? Have you updated 13 to 13.1 using an opened project's Help Menu/Updates?
Let us explore your situation. At this time, I have Premiere Elements 13/13.1 on Windows 7 64 bit and Windows 10 64 bit and am not sharing your issues.
Windows 7 uses a desktop microphone that plugs into the computer jack and Window 10 is using the laptop's built in microphone.
1. Have evaluated
a. Computer Sound System settings
b. Your microphone settings
c. Premiere Elements' ASIO settings (Edit Menu/Preferences/Audio Hardware ASIO and the Input and Output situations.
In the Narration Tool dialog, have you taken the Mic Sensitivity all the way to the left before beginning to record?
Are you saying that you cannot hear your narration clip content once the clip is on the Timeline Narration Track? Can you hear it if you move the narration clip to a new numbered audio track or the Soundtrack.
Have you read the Info tips in the Narration Tool dialog
Have you read the Adobe document on creating narration with the Narration Tool
Please consider the above. Then we can decide what next based on the details in your reply.
I saw your follow up in the other thread that you created and was glad to learn of your success. In your other thread, I just wrote
Great news. Well done.
Please never hesitate to ask questions and to ask for clarification when you run into issues with the program and its projects.
We are glad for the opportunity to share with you what worked for us and/or from what we have read. We want you to succeed.
We are not Adobe. Rather user to user forum.
In that other thread you have written of your success Are their known issues with narration in Premiere 13?
"Thanks for replying. Before seeing your reply, I did the following:
- I started a completely new project, suspecting that the old project was corrupted... which it was. I couldn't hear anything!
- I then discovered that it was best to leave the recording panel open. slide the volume slider to the left and uncheck mute audio (obvious bad code)) and experienced the weird stopping without me hitting the stop button at all.
- Then after receiving your reply, I did finally read Adobes Creating Narration document which explained how the recording and playback protocol was designed to be used.
Frankly, I prefer controlling my own Stop recording button. Any other way is frankly weird and personally frustrating. Finally, after using Adobe Premier Narration based how it was designed to be used my productivity greatly improved and I was able to get through to the end of project by recording a few sentences at a time, and my creating my project narration as a series of short clips . .
Thanks again for responding. I am now able to proceed with my project without so much frustration and not as much anger.
I have done repeating of information between threads since I am not sure which thread might be seen by a moderator and deleted or closed because of duplicate threads.
