How to use Library

When you enter into the application, you will land on the Library page. This is where your projects are listed newest to oldest and where to access the Pronunciation Editor, Billing, project sync, and other settings from the left side panel.

Watch the video for a quick overview of the Library.

Project Location

Project location can be toggled from the side panel and by default it will be ‘Online’. When your projects are synced online, you can access and edit them from any device you log into. We strongly recommend leaving this setting on. If turned off, your projects are saved to your browser’s cache only. This requires the user to create manual backups of their projects for safekeeping. This also means that erasing your browser’s cache or history will also erase your projects.

Both options are safe and secure, but we recommend that you use the online sync.


Actions

Hovering the mouse over a project listed will activate options under the ‘Actions’ column: download, edit, and delete.

‘Download for Import’ will export that project in a unique .nkl file format that only NR Commercial can access. This is how you backup projects manually. To get it back into the application, click on the ‘Import’ button and select the .nkl file from your computer’s files.

Click on ‘Edit’ to edit the project name. By default, projects are named after the first several characters used in the project.

Click on ‘Delete’ to remove the project permanently.


Create New

To get started, click on ‘Create New’. In this window, type or paste in the text. Here you can select the voice and speed. Click on ‘Test’ to sample your voice and speed settings. This is just a test, so it will only read the first few lines. Don’t worry, you can listen to the rest after the next step.

Remember that after you enter your text here, it will be divided into segments based on where you had line or paragraph breaks. The amount of characters allowed in each segment depends on the voice you’re using, but if your text exceeds the maximum, it will be divided up for you. The voice and speed you enter will apply to all segments, but you can make adjustments later to this as well.

To proceed, click on ‘Next’ and you will enter the Reader Editor.
