    Thanks for the tip/promo!  Do you know if they have an option for those of us using Prezi.com yet?  been trying to figure out an inexpensive way to do voice overs for that platform....

    Conor, here's what I found about the process of adding audio to Prezi: seems a bit arduous, but apparently  doable if you have the appropriate software and tech skills:

    For now, Prezi only supports the flv video format (and Youtube links).

    To have audio played at distinct steps of your presentation, do the following:

    1. Place the audio you'd like to play into a video file.

    - You can do this with the most basic video editing software included in your Op system, eg. Windows Movie Maker.

    2. Convert the video file into .flv format.

    - We recommend the free online converter at http://zamzar.com/ to do this.

    3. Load the flv into your Prezi, place it into the presentation Path at the desired point.

    - When you reach the flv in the Path, the sound will start playing automatically.

    - It will pause if you continue, but you can also use the usual video controls to move around in the file.

    - If you wouldn't like to have black video screens in your Prezi, either add a visual background to the video that suits your design, or simply hide the video behind another object in Prezi (leave the video controls visible at the bottom, if you'd like to enable the viewer to control the sound.)

    Hope this helps!

    Do you know of any similar software for a Mac?

    Benny, GoldMail is not dependent on any particular operating system - there is no software to download or install. So, Mac users are fine. :)
