Oral history editing

Use Audacity audio editing software to create extracts from oral history recordings for use in learning resources

What's involved?

We have some wonderful oral history recordings, which really help to bring out how big historical events shaped the lives of ordinary people. We want to use these recordings as part of our learning resources, but recordings tend to be too long for us to just provide teachers with the whole interview.

We need some help to create extracts from these recordings, so that we have short, to the point audio files. These will be published on the education pages on our website, so that teachers can listen to them and even play them to their whole class.

Suffolk Archives staff will provide guidance and access to the recordings, and instructions on which extracts are needed.

Why get involved?

  • Enjoy listening to recordings from our oral history collection
  • Contribute to making local history available to teachers and school pupils
  • Easy to do remotely
  • Learn or develop new skills
