To add audio – or background audio – to a narration you need to add ‘shortcodes’ to your text. This can be done ‘semi-automatically’ using the buttons on uploaded audio. But, you should have an understanding of how they work!
‘Audio’ is defined as a piece of uploaded content that is played in place, without text narration generated over top of it. For example, if you have a podcast intro that you want to add at the top (or somewhere) in your narration, you can upload it and use this tag to have it played in the right location. Audio files are played in their entirety. They cannot be shortened.
|File name should not have single or double quotes in it. Must match the name of the uploaded file.|
‘Background Audio’ is a piece of audio that is played underneath generated narration. It’s duration can be influenced by the narration.
|[background-audio file=’file-name.mp3′]||File name should not have single or double quotes in it. Must match the name of the uploaded file.|
|[background-audio file=’file-name.mp3′ duration=’voice’]||duration is optional. You don’t really need to use this shortcode like this as it is the default. The background audio file will fade out 2 seconds after the end of the narration (if it is longer than the narration)|
|[background-audio file=’file-name.mp3′ duration=’longest’]||Play the entire audio, even if it is longer than the narration.|
When a short code is inserted into your text it is ESSENTIAL that it is unstyled – i.e. no bolding, italicizing, font changes etc – and does not contain ‘curly quotes’. These will cause the parsing to not work and results will not be what you want.
