NOTE ABOUT AUDIO

Please use some headphones and make sure your interviews are on both channels – left and right speakers. If they are not, you will need to get them on both of those speakers. With some software, this simply means making the interview’s AUDIO TRACK “mono” or converting to STEREO. However, more current versions of iMovie does not have a quick fix for this. To fix this, you can use a free and well-known program called AUDACITY. Please see the links below to download this software and a great tutorial on how to use it.
