    Note: You can add audio in Discussion posts, News items, and Dropbox folders and submissions.

  2. In Discussions, for instance, you may create a new message or reply to an existing post. Enter your message in the space provided.

  3. Then press Add attachments below the message field to reveal the options within, choose Record, then select Record Audio.

  6. Click Close.

  7. Click the red Record button.
