Here are links to the software we use that you can download for free:

  • Switch – this will let you convert WMA files into WAV files. Scroll down for the converter links at the bottom.
  • Audacity – the audio editing software. Make sure you get the program and the LAME encoder or you won’t be able to export the MP3 files.
  • SoundSlides – this is what we use to build the audio slide shows themselves. There is a license fee for this, but there is a fully functional demo you can try out.
