Insert short animal sound clips

For an animal booklet I’d like to insert mp3 audio clips with the noises of the introduced animals. Any experience with similar tasks?

Hi Rudolf,

That sounds like a wonderful idea!

  There are two possibilities in Bloom for what you want to do.

Which one you use will depend on whether you want your sound (1)
associated with the page that’s displaying, or (2) associated with
some piece of text.

  (1) You could use the Music tool in Bloom's toolbox to set an

.mp3 file as background music for a page.

  (2) If you have the Beta version of Bloom (4.7), there is now an

Import Recording button in the Talking Book tool. If you used
that, you would be giving a piece of text in your book that animal
sound instead of “reading the text” to the user, it would
highlight the text and play an animal sound instead.

  Depending on what you have in mind, either of those could be

useful ideas. I think you may be the first to do that in a Bloom


Thanks Gordon.
By the way, for images Bloom has a semi-automatic fill in function for © issues. How do I mark sound or video copyrights? Is there a similar tool available or do I have to insert that manually into the Front/Back Matters of the product?

Hi Rudolf,

  At this point for audio and video copyrights, manual entry is the

only way to go. Sorry.
