Audacity Editing Tips:

The command shift-j or shift-k will select to the left or right of your curser, and then you can use the Delete key to delete the selection, or cmd-t to trim all but the selected region.

Once you have made your trims, make sure the "Project Rate" field in the lower left hand side of the page is set to 22050 Hz, and go to (File > Export). From the page that pops up, select MP3 files for the format, and then click the options button. Set the Bit rate mode to Constant, and the Quality to 24kbps.

Click OK and then select the location to save your mp3 file.

    After the audio is edited and re-uploaded to Instant Teleseminar is there any way to have the new mp3 audio synced up with the webinar slides or do the webinar slides maintain the former audio recording?

    No, if you edit an audio and re-upload, the original recorded slides+audio presentation is disabled, because the slides won't sync.  

    However, you could set up a new event, upload the audio to your My Audios library, and then make a new slides+audio presentation using your edited audio by playing the audio into the event and manually flipping through the presentation at the appropriate moment to record a new presentation.

    OK, that's a great idea and will work for what I need to do.

    I will look into how to do that, I may need your help with specific steps. Let me add the piece I missed to my audio and get back to you next week.Thanks!
