    Are their known issues with narration in Premiere 13?


      I am having a heck of a time training to get Narration to work in Premiere 13


      1. First it had to do with hear audio in my headsets when I narrated. The code is bad - If I want to mute audio the check box should work and the slider should stay put.


      2. It also clips off  some of my outpoint audio


      3. Now I can't hear recorded narration track at all.


      I am discovering that Narration in Premiere 13 sucks.


      What about this Adobe and Adobe community?

          Premiere Elements 13 on what computer operating system? Have you updated 13 to 13.1 using an opened project's Help Menu/Updates?

          What microphone?


          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

          Adobe Premiere Elements Help | Create narrations


          Please consider the above. Then we can decide what next based on the details in your reply.


          Thank you.

            "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.
