Chapter 7. Adding Comments > Using Audio Attachments

Using Audio Attachments

To add spoken commentary (or a musical interlude, if the document calls for it) to a PDF document, use an audio attachment. If your computer has a microphone or you have sounds on your system already, you can easily add sound to a PDF.

To attach a sound file to a document

Choose Record Audio Comment from the Commenting toolbar (Figure 7.32).
