I don’t have a code, how do I sign-up?
If your company / university has access to an exclusive audio library, please contact your superior / teacher for the library code.
If your company / university has no access to an exclusive audio library or you simply want to see what the app looks like, you can sign up in the free public audio library.
How do I record content inside the app?
To record your own tracks in the Audvice app, switch to the recording symbol on the bottom tab bar. To start with your first track click in the plus button to open up the actual recording screen. You’ll then be able to start with your recording. If you need to pause or make a mistake, you can simply press the button in the middle again and your recording will stop.
To revise a mistake, all you need to do is scroll back on the waveform, to any pause before the mistake. Double check if it’s the right spot by clicking play and scrolling back again. If the middle line is on the right spot, press record and continue talking.
Is there a maximum length for recordings?
Tracks can be no longer than 6 minutes. That does not mean, that you have to compress your whole topic into short 6 minutes but that you have to structure it better. Instead of doing one super long recording, try to split your topic into short bites that are easy to comprehend. This way it’s way easier to listen to the topic and to revise specific information if needed.
What should I keep in mind when I do recordings?
It's important that you speak clearly and explicitly. Of course there are a few tricks, that will improve your recordings. It's best to have a glass of water ready at hand and refrain from coffee, milk or orange juice shortly before the recording, since this will negatively impact your vocal chords. Always try to keep your mouth open while you're speaking and show teeth. This will make your pronunciation clearer. Audvice lets you record tracks with a maximum length of 6 minutes, one after another. Don't be afraid of slips. If you get a word or sentence wrong, you can simply press the stop button, scroll back and talk over the mistake.
Do I have to share my tracks with everyone?
Of course, you have the option to keep your tracks private - so that only you are able to listen to them.
I don’t have the best voice. Should I record anyway?
Absolutely! It's probably only you who thinks that. People hear you talking everyday. How many have complained about your voice so far? Listening to yourself on audio recordings is weird at first, but quickly becomes totally normal. Trust us!
Can I record everything I want in the public audio library?
No matter what your subject is, you can record any topic you want to learn. However, there are a few rules to the game:
You are welcome to quote books or other sources, but for copyright reasons, you can't just read out whole passages and chapters and upload them as tracks. This is only possible with Creative Commons works, such as Wikipedia articles. Also, you are not allowed to record other people without their permission, especially professors during lectures. Inappropriate or illegal content can and should be reported by the community and will be deleted without exception.
