      Hi Alissa, audacity is a great free audio editing tool. I am always amazed to think that it is still offered for free. It has so many features for editing. There are many online tutorials to help with its use. Does anyone else have any suggestions?

      Hi Liz, am in contact with people who can remove the tree from the header. However, won’t be long until Christmas again!
