Hi, I found this activity in my downloads folder (from 5Nov2014), but not sure what it was about (I see Noa was doing Visit Britain, maybe it's from her students?)
I see it was named as .zip instead of .clipflair (or .clipflair.zip) that ClipFlair Studio supports. After renaming it, seems to open and play the revoicing audio ok
Uploading it here so that I can delete it from my laptop
it is 21MB (because the audio is kept as uncompressed WAV in the .clipflair file and the ZIP algorithm used for those files is generic and not that good for audio). I plan to add support for loading an .MP3 at a row in the Captions/Revoicing component, so that one can save the WAVs and replace them with MP3s after converting them locally, or by opening up the .clipflair file with a ZIP program and replacing all the .WAV audio files with .MP3s by drag-dropping them first in a convertion program (MP3 encoding utility).
Update: added .MP3 support (Load/Save only, not recording) at the AudioRecorderControl that is used in Captions/Revoicing component.
So you can use http://media.io or some local converter program to convert your revoicing WAVs to MP3s and make your activity smaller.
You can do that either via the UI, saving each row's audio to WAV, then converting to MP3, then loading the MP3 at the same row of the Revoicing component again, then at the end saving the activity, or open up the .clipflair with WinRAR or 7-zip and find the .clipflair.zip of the Captions/Revoicing component in there and get the WAVs from the Audio (or AudioComments for the audio-comments column) subfolder of it. When you put MP3s in there keep the same filename pattern
I will also at some moment look into creating a compressing utility app (could be server based but would get resources of the server if misused or becomes too popular) for Windows to get a .clipflair file and convert all WAVs in it to MP3
btw, note that if you have multiple Captions components in your activity they all save the audio so you get a very big file. Prefer to show the Audio column of Captions component rather than have separate Captions and Revoicing windows (they're the same component after all and you also lose screen space when having them separate)

The metadata information about the activity can only be added once the activity is already in the gallery, isn't?
when you see your post with a blue frame (marked as answer [sorry, there is not "mark as answered" feature, so we use that instead]), it means it was uploaded to the gallery, so you can enter the metadata. Next day the activity will appear in the gallery and will have that metadata (it is updated every night, so you can edit them in the future)
