Go to the Edit Annotations settings to view, delete, or change the colour of the highlights or modify, edit, or delete your notes. You can also export your annotations to a txt file for you to reference or study from.

Save Annotation

  1. Upload a document file or open a document from your account Library

  2. While listening to your document, select the Annotation icon at any time to save a highlight to your current text

Add Notes

  2. Or, open the Settings by clicking on 3 dots from the menu

  3. Select Edit Annotations

  4. Scroll to the annotation you'd like to add a note to and select the Note icon

Editing Annotations, Highlight Colour, and Notes
