  1. Double-click the button to which you want to assign a Recorded Preview. The Button Actions dialog will appear.
Note: You must have a sound card with a microphone or a built-in microphone to use this feature.
  1. Select Recorded Preview in the Action Menu list.

  3. Click the Select Sound from Computer button to use a pre-recorded sound. If you choose this option, a navigation window will appear allowing you to locate and import the desired sound.

  1. Click the Record button and speak the preview message into the microphone.
  2. Click the Stop button (previously the Record button) to stop recording.
  3. Click OK when you are finished recording.
  4. Type a descriptive name for your recorded preview.
  5. Click OK.
