No fancy equipment is necessary. A voice recording app on a smartphone is fine for podcasting purposes as long as there isn’t any background noise.

** The file should be in an mp3 format with a length of 5-15 minutes. **

A couple of quick voice tips:

  • Keep your mouth at least 5 inches or so away from your mouth
  • Don’t try to read as fast as you can. A relaxed speaking pace is better and easier to understand.

Audacity is great for cutting any mistakes. Authors Reading will not cut mistakes from your audio for you.
