Enhance your training, tours and games with audio clips

The most recent feature of ours – the audio clips feature – offers a great supplement to your game concepts. It enables you to upload up to 20 MB of .mp3 audio files. 

You might already use background audio with a smaller capacity (https://loquiz.com/2019/05/17/task-background-sound/) or Youtube/ Vimeo uploads with sound only. Still, the new feature is not a workaround. This is the direct feature to insert your recorded audio clips into the game. 

In addition, in the app, while playing, the audio includes rewind, play, and forward buttons. In addition, the slide-bar to jump back into the point you want to listen once more. That said, the players can’t accidentally miss any details from your audio clips.

Options for using

  • Firstly, to add value to your virtual training. As a result of this, you’ll forge a powerful connection with your audience you as a trainer/ consultant. You can personally give your advice through recorded audio. It brings the audience closer to the real-life training experience. 
  • Secondly, to boost your city/ sightseeing tours. The tasks themselves could be challenging by controlling the player’s knowledge. The audio files inside tasks are complementing the tour journey by giving hints to complete the tasks successfully. 
  • Thirdly, characterized voiceovers in story-based games. From the perspective of more enjoyable playing experience, it makes sense to skip longer text-based content and replace it with an audio file. By adding audio, it makes the game itself more unique and personalized. 

To add the recorded audio clip to the game, the voiceover needs to be created. For instance, there are a couple of great voiceover recorders listed by Voices.com: https://www.voices.com/blog/voice-recording-software/
