Record Narration

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


When you are not able to narrate a presentation yourself or you will be setting up your presentation at a booth where it will run continuously, you should record narration into your presentation.  The narration will run exactly as if you were right there narrating the presentation your self.  Slides will automatically change as well because timings will be set as you record.

Record Narration

1.  Save your presentation.  (Save it just in case PowerPoint crashes during your recording.)

2.  Click the Slide Show menu and click Record Narration... from the menu that appears.

3.  Figure 1.1 will be displayed.

4.  Figure 1.1 can be confusing as it may have some settings you may not have ever used unless you use audio editing software.  

5.  Click the Change Quality button to display Figure 1.2.

Figure 1.2

6.  In Figure 1.2, select from the Name: drop-down menu which audio quality you would like to use.

Note: CD Quality uses the most hard-disk space on your hard drive.  Radio Quality uses the next most, and Telephone Quality uses the least disk space.  Disk space also depends on how long audio is recorded.

7.  The other settings can usually just be left alone.  Click the OK button.

8.  Click OK in Figure 1.1.

9.  Recording will begin.

10.  Keep clicking the screen to move through the slides as you narrate the presentation.  Make it as if you were running through the presentation with the audience right now.
