    Sound echos

    Chemistry guy
      I'm new to Flash. I'm using it to create the equivalent of PowerPoint presentations with voice. You can see them at

      http://preparatorychemistry.com/Bishop_Audio_Book.htm

      I just discovered that the audio portion of my presentations has a distinct and annoying echo when I listen to it through headphones attached to a computer. I've tried two different headphones and three different computers, and it's the same on all of them. I can hear a tiny bit of this through regular speakers, but until I listened through the headphones, I didn't think it was a problem. Anybody know what's going on and how I can fix it?

      Thanks for the help.

          Having not listened to it, my guess is that you have the sound playing
          twice.

            I listened with
            1. On board laptop speakers (Harmon/Kardon)
            2. No name headphones
            3. Sony earbud headphones

            I couldn't hear any problem with laptop.
            Buzz in background with no namers.
            Slighly less buzz in background with Sony.

            I would assume it is the quality of the audio you are using. I don't dabble
            in all that much sound stuff in Flash, but I have seen some sound settings
            in the Publish Setting for an fla.
