Step 1: Download the Software Program

Start with visiting the official Wondershare website to download the Filmora media editor program on your preferred devices, then install the same in your system.

Step 2: Import a Media File

Launch the software application after its successful installation in your system, and wait for its welcome interface to appear. On the launch screen, click on the My Media tab in the editor workspace and import a media file, preferably a video, to the app's timeline.

Remember to uncheck the Mute Project option since there is no background music in the recorded voiceover. Next, tap the red Record button to record your voiceover and track its progress in the project timeline.

You can add voiceovers at different points in your audio track by splitting the ways in the editor timeline and including the recorded voiceover within the spaces. Then, merge the cut track pieces ahead of the voiceover file to create a unified audio track.
