To finish off the audio portion I decided to try the “Audio Book” assignment. For this I had to record myself reading a book and then add sound effects. The book I chose was “Are You My Mother?” by P.D. Eastman.
This assignment reminded me of the interactive books with the sound buttons my parents used to read me when I was little. I chose to read a children’s book because I wanted to created something similar to the toy from my childhood. I picked sound effects to go with each character and then played the specific clips anytime a character’s name was mentioned in the text.
Like my previous assignment, I got all the sound effects came from either soungle.com or freesound.org and used Audacity to put everything together.
