Confluence has been upgraded!

https://wiki.shanti.virginia.edu/ is now a read-only repository. It will be permanently decommissioned on December 15, 2019. Visit UVA's new instance of Confluence to create new wikis or modify existing content.

You can upload an audio file from several places in Audio-Video, including the "My Content" section of your account. This guide shows you how to upload a file from the Audio-Video tool homepage.

By default, visitors can't see new entries. To make your audio file publicly available, check Availability & Access in the editor (step 12).
