字幕表 動画を再生する 英語字幕をプリント Hi, my fellow fatties! This is fatso! Lately I was asked how to upload an edited recording to the VoiceTube daily pronunciation challenge. So this video is intended to be a short tutorial for that. But before I get down to business and answer the question I think maybe I should spend a minute talking about VoiceTube VoiceTube, unlike the other Tube that you are used to visit for all sort of fun videos, is a website dedicated to English-learning community in Taiwan. It has all sorts of features, but the most important one of all is, like how their motto suggests, learning English through videos. You can find over 40,000 videos on the website and watch them with bilingual subtitles. You can repeat a single sentence, over and over, until it gets really annoying. You can also do a voiceover for every sentences in a video and then download a mp3 file made of your own vocal sound so you can hear yourself talking while you fall asleep, provided that your are narcissistic and obsessed with your deep, charming voice. You can join the community and interact with other people and find a language learning buddy. The daily pronunciation challenge corner allows you to record and upload the selected sentences from different videos every day. This is the part where you get to put your English enunciation skill under the spotlight and be subjected to other’s judgment. You can also find an attention-seeker here who tries way too hard and desperately need approval from other people. With all jokes aside, I enjoy my experience here. The participation is spontaneous and you get positive feedbacks here most of time. Now, back to the topic. How do I upload an edited recording to the daily pronunciation challenge page. You see, the website has this recording function that doesn’t allow you to go back and edit your recording. You can only preview your recording and decide if you want to do it all over again. If you are like me, who can’t tolerate the hissing background noise from your crappy, cheap microphone, it’s pretty natural to turn to the noise reduction function of audio software. And while you are there, you figure why not throw in some background music to jazz it up. Before you realized it, your simple recording of a few sentences has turned into this crazy composition with tracks of voiceover, background music, and sound effects. After you pulled the mp3 file from the audio software, here comes the question. How do you upload your masterpiece to the VoiceTube? The first instinct is to put your microphone next to you speaker and press record, but let’s face it. This is not an ideal way ‘cause you are gonna sound like you are buried under sand. Here’s how. First, go down to the audio icon in your system tray, right-click it, and go to “recording devices” to open up the setting pane. Click on the blank area, and check “Show Disabled Devices” and “Show Disconnected Devices”. You should see a “Stereo Mix” option appear. Right click on the “Stereo Mix” and click “Enable” to use it and make sure you set it as default device. Now, you can try to play your mp3 file. You should see rising and dropping on the volume bar here. This means now whatever noise that’s coming out of your speaker can be recorded down. Now, back to the daily pronunciation challenge page. Click on the recording button and immediately play your mp3 file. Once the file is finished playing, click to stop recording. Check your recording and make sure it’s not too loud. If it’s too loud you can turn down the volume and make a recording again. Personally, I prefer using 56% of the volume, but I am still looking for the best ration Now you can upload your edited recording to the VoiceTube. Easy peasy. And don’t forget to set your default recording device back to microphone if you plan to use it later. So here you go. That’s how you upload your edited recording to the VoiceTube. However, based on the soundcard you use, there might not be a stereo mix option. In this case, you can always go putting your microphone next to your speaker. So what you sound like you are buried under sand. That hollow and echo sound may just be the thing you need to sound mystic. There’s also another way that you can simply connect your audio output and your microphone input with an audio cable. But I’ve never done it, so let me know how that goes. This tutorial only applies to the PC users. Sorry for the android and apple users. Thank you for watching. Fatso out!
