Narration and Slide Timings Presentation

Narration and Slide Timings Presentation


As you work on your PowerPoint presentation, Note that you should take all my previous feedback into consideration and present a revised Capstone. I will be looking out for these changes and grading you accordingly.

You will present a PowerPoint Poster presentation with voiceover. Use the template I have provided for you.

Template and Information to be used in the template are attached.

Record a slide show with narration and slide timings

You can record your PowerPoint presentation—or a single slide—and capture voice, ink gestures, and your video presence. When completed, it’s like any other presentation. You can play it for your audience in a Slide Show or you can save the presentation as a video file. So, instead of just “handing the deck” to someone, people can see your presentation with the passion and personality intact.

That way you don’t have to re-record the audio for that slide.

The Clear command is for deleting timings or narration from your recording that you don’t want or that you want to replace.

In the Recording window, the Clear command in the top margin of the window allows you to:

  • Clear recordings on the current slide
