View audio details



You can view all audio details (Audio > Audio Management) in one convenient location in Adobe Captivate. This is an easy way to see the playing time, size, and other attributes of all the audio files in a single project.

Audio details

Display Name
The name of the file after you have renamed it in Adobe Captivate. If you have not renamed the file, the original name is displayed.

Audio Sample Rate (kHz)
This rate is the number of times per second the original waveform is translated into digital form. A higher sample rate results in a more accurate digital representation of the sound. The sample rate for CD-quality audio is 44,100 samples per second.

Bitrate (Kbps)
This rate is the number of bits a digital file uses in a specific time period, usually expressed as kilobits per second. The higher the bit rate at which an audio file is encoded, the higher the sound quality; 128 Kbps is a commonly used rate.

CC
Indicates whether a transcript of the dialogue or sound effects has been included in the audio file.
