Power Point Example



Within NEISD, use the NEISD applications download folder.  It should contain the LAME file needed to save sound as an MP3.  But, if for some reason, after you have recorded a file in Audacity and the option for MP3 file is greyed out, the LAME application file is also located on the student server/computerlab/sound files/lame_enc.dll.  Then you will be able to export as an MP3.  It is a good idea to make a short test file when first using the application.


This is what you would use from outside NEISD.

Downloads (As with all software, check with the administrator of the computer before downloading.  These resources are not an endorsement of the product.  NEISD  holds no responsibility for downloading or using.

To convert Audacity files to MP3, also download the Lame file.  (The LAME dll will go in the in Programs/Audacity/Plug Ins.)
