 Hey guys and gals,

I am trying to add a bit of a narration in the form of augmented reality to
the application I am building. In essence the user will be looking through
his/her handset to a location X and I want an MP3 file or WAV
or whatever format to play while the camera view finder is up (like the
augmented reality apps except instead of overlaying images and widgets I
need to overlay audio)

Anyone know a way to do this?

 > Hey guys and gals,

It should just work, assuming you're creating your own camera preview.
Just use MediaPlayer or AsyncPlayer or something for the voiceover.
