    The narrated audio is saved as a WAV file. You can reuse the file multiple times by dragging and dropping it on a slide from the Adobe Captivate Library.

The recorded audio appears in a separate layer in the Timeline. You can then edit the audio clip to introduce silence, adjust volume, or trim it.


One of the ways of adding narration to your projects is by recording the narration using a microphone. You can record the narration either during the recording of the project or after recording the project.
