Uploading or Importing Media
Once you have created your VoiceThread, you will be prompted to upload or import media to create your VoiceThread slides. There are two ways to add files from your computer to a VoiceThread:
- Drag your files from your computer and drop them onto the Create page
- Click on Add Media and select My Computer. Select your files.
The files will upload and process, which may take several minutes. As soon as they are ready you will see them as thumbnails on your Create page.
While your VoiceThread is processing, the Thread Settings box will pop up. Enter a title for your VoiceThread and (optional) description and tags.
