Voice Narrating Your Page


You can add voice only narration to each page of your Simplebooklet. This voice narration can be recorded using your device's microphone or by uploading an MP3 or WAV file.

Your voice narration is per page. This makes it easier to narrate pages since you don't need to make a single recording all at once across all your pages. Take your time, and take as many takes as you need to get comfortable. You can re-record your voice narration on each page as many times as you need.

|Tip: Don't try for perfection. The sincerity in your speech as you talk about what's important will be more engaging and authentic to your audience.

You can record up to 2 minutes per page of audio only narration.
We recommend using Google Chrome to record your audio narrations.
