As the author of the course, you may want to record your voice directly from our platform without using any external tools to speed up the process and make your courses even more engaging.

Benefits of recording the audio directly from Easygenerator:

  • Record narration or explanations on the course to help your learners better understand the topic without using other tools.

  • Use the recorded audio right after the recording in your course.

  • Store it in one place (My library) and re-use it in other courses (if needed).

  • Trim the beginning or end of the audio file.


  • The time limit for voice recording is 10 minutes maximum. If the recording reaches this limit, then it stops automatically and the recorded audio gets processed and uploaded.

  • For a better experience, it is recommended to use either Chrome or Edge to record the audio

  • In order to start the recording, you need to enable or grant access to your microphone (from both the browser and Operate System).

  • Only the user who recorded the audio can trim it.

  • The recorded audio files that are reused in other courses are linked, which means that if you edit or trim them in one of the courses, the changes will overwrite the original audio.

How to record audio?

To record audio, please follow the next steps:

  1. You can record audio from:

  • The Voice-over from the content/question editor. To do so, open a Content/Question page -> Select the Add voice over option -> Record audio.

  • The Single audio content block. Open a Content/question page -> Select the Media block on the left panel -> Drag and drop the Single audio block to the page -> Click on the Change audio option -> Record audio.

  • Your Audio Library. Go to the My Library tab -> Audio -> Record audio.

  • The “Choose from Library” popover in the Voice-over and Single audio block. Select the Voice over or Single audio block in a Content/Question page -> Click on Choose from Library -> Record audio.

2. Once you click on the Record audio option, you will need to grant access to your microphone in order to start the recording.

3. A new audio block will be created with the audio recording options. Before recording your voice, you can choose the Microphone under the Input settings and test the level of audio coming from it.

4. Once you’re ready, click on the Start recording option (the mic button). You can pause and resume the recording as many times as you need, and once you’re done, click on the Finish recording button.

5. The audio will be processed and you will get access to the audio editor, where you can change its title, trim it, or delete it.

Note: To trim the audio, set the start and end time for the audio you would like to keep or drag the time pointer to the left and/or to the right in the timeline toolbar so that other parts will be trimmed off.

-> When you trim the audio right after it was recorded: If you are satisfied with the result, click on Done. If not, click on Delete audio and start over.

-> When you trim an existing audio file: Click on Apply changes once you’re satisfied with the outcome. Otherwise, click on Cancel.

6. The recorded audio will be automatically saved in your Audio Library and you can use it in other courses.
