Chapter 10. Annotating PDFs > Using Audio Annotations

Using Audio Annotations

To add spoken commentary (or a musical interlude, if the document calls for it) to a PDF document, use an audio annotation. If your computer has a microphone, you can add audio to a PDF easily.

To add a sound attachment to a document:

1.
Choose the Sound Attachment tool from the toolbar (Shift-S) (Figure 10.22).

Figure 10.22. The Sound Attachment tool is below the Note tool in the toolbar.


2.
Place the sound attachment by clicking a document page.

In Windows, the Sound Recorder dialog box appears (Figure 10.23). In the Mac OS, the Record Sound dialog box appears (Figure 10.24).

Figure 10.23. This dialog box allows you to record your sound-attachment annotation.


Figure 10.24. The Macintosh Record Sound dialog box lets you record sounds for annotations.


3.
Click the Record button to begin recording a sound attachment.

4.
Click the Stop button when you've finished speaking.

5.
Play back the sound or click OK.

The Sound Properties dialog box appears automatically, in case you want to make any changes (Figure 10.25). A little speaker appears on the page where your annotation was placed (Figure 10.26).

Figure 10.25. The Sound Properties dialog box allows you to change the color of the annotation icon.


Figure 10.26. Sound attachments are indicated on a PDF page by a little speaker. Clicking the speaker plays the sound.
