Adding audio to a module

Trakstar Learn supports adding audio in a number of different ways:

  • You can record audio within PowerPoint and upload that file to Learn.
  • You can record audio directly within Learn using our built-in recording tool.
  • You can record audio using your preferred recording tool and then upload your audio file in Learn.

To record audio using our built-in tool or to upload your own audio file:

  • From the "Content" tab in your Module, click on the "Add and Arrange Content" button.
  • Next, select the slide you'd like to add audio to and then click on the "See Slide Detail" button in the top right
  • Here you will see a more detailed view of the slide you selected. In the top right, click on the "Record Audio" button.


  • A widget will appear in the bottom left corner and you will be presented with two options: Record or Upload.


  • To Record your own audio in Learn:
    • Click on Record and a countdown will appear and then start recording. 
      • Note: There is a 5 minute time limit/cap per recording.
    • Once you've finished recording, press the stop button. 


    • You will be given the option to preview it by playing, saving the audio recording, or undoing and starting over. Save your file to finish the recording process. 
  • To upload your own audio file:
    • Select Upload from the audio widget.
    • Search for your audio file from Box, Dropbox, or your computer.
    • Select Upload. Your audio file will be added to this slide and automatically saved. 


Note: Slides with audio will NOT automatically play when trainees view the slide due to internet browser security standards.
