After a WAV file has been imported and the dialog closes, the first portion of the audio that has been imported will automatically play. This will confirm that the correct audio has been imported.

Repeat this process for the second NCC item and for each of the NCC headings and WAV files until the audio import for the project is complete.

Attention!! You can adjust the "Pause length" in the "Phrase detector" tab of the "Recording settings" dialog if the audio events are too long and do not correspond to the sentence breaks. The default is "0.4 seconds". This can be adjusted to create shorter audio events.
If the very beginning subtle sound of the events is at the end of the previous event rather than at the beginning of the event to which it belongs, adjust the "Record before phrase" in the "Phrase detector" tab from around 130 to 150ms. Please be aware that with Sigtuna DAR 3, only vowels can be detected as "Voice".
