AUDIO RECORDING TIP
      Use a USB microphone
      USB microphones use less computer resources and record
       better audio than an analog microphone connected to your
       computer’s audio card.
      Practice using a microphone
      Experiment with different volume levels and different
       microphone placement. Six inches from the microphone is
       usually good to record full tones, but not too close that
       other noises interfere.
      Record in a quiet location
      Any microphone can pick up nearby noises. Most office
       areas have a lot of background noise that you may or may
       not notice. Take a second and listen. What do you hear?
      Block the computer’s humming sound
      Build a small box lined with foam to put your microphone
       in as you record, use pillows or blankets to muffle the
       noise, or cover your head with the blanket.
AUDIO RECORDING TIP
      Use a script
      A script helps you produce the best audio by
       allowing you to avoid mistakes or saying um or
       uh. If you do not want a formal presentation, an
       outline can help reduce some mistakes.
      Project and enunciate
      Speak as though you are addressing a small
       audience in a large room.
      Monitor the audio level as you record
      The green to yellow range indicates normal.
       Orange to red warns you are too close to the over-
       modulated input. Best audio quality occurs when
       the Audio Input meter is in the green to very
       light orange range.
      Use the Audio Enhancements option
