The Wimba Voice Presentation tool allows you to easily associate an audio file with a web page in any Blackboard Vista course page. The audio file and the website that you select will appear together as one “slide.” Wimba Voice Presentation allows instructors to verbally explain ideas or draw attention to important points that relate to the web pages that they wish to highlight.
