Instead of recording your voice directly onto the page, perhaps you have audio files stored on your computer that you want to add to your book?

First, click the + button and then choose More > Files. You'll see a toolbar like this:


Clicking on Files tab File manager on your computer. You can navigate to the image/video you want and choose it by double-clicking. Make sure that your file is in one of our compatible media formats for audio.

Connect to Drive

You can import from Google Drive by enabling Drive in the App Store.

Once an audio file is selected, it will be added to the page. You may find it takes a while to load, depending on the size of the file and your internet connection speed. The audio file will appear as an audio hotspot on the page, just click it to play the file.
