This study investigated how the use of instructional multimedia integrated with audio playback rate-control tool affects the eighth grade students' achievement and attitudes. The audio playback rate-control tool used in this study allows audio to be listened in less time or more time than it was originally recorded, with no loss of voice quality or intelligibility. The study also examined students' tendencies in using audio playback rate-control tool used in the instructional software, and explored the opinions of the students toward the instructional software that is supported by audio playback rate-control tool. A quasi-experimental pretest-posttest nonequivalent control group design was used in this study. The study used data from 48 (26 female, 22 male) students of two eight-grade classes of Private Bilim Elementary School in Ankara. In this study, convenient sampling method was used. For the purpose of the present study two versions of instructional software (with andwithout audio playback rate-control tool) on Simple Machines subject for the eight- grade Science course were developed. Experimental group used the instructional software with the audio playback rate-control tool, and control group used the instructional software without the audio playback rate-control tool. The results of the study indicated that the treatment in both groups improved their achievement scores significantly. However, the results indicated that there is no statistically significant difference between the experimental and the control groups' achievements and attitudes in pre and posttests. The analysis of computer logs and interview results indicated that students used and liked the audio playback rate- control tool.
