What’s PowerPoint Voice Narration?

PowerPoint‘s voice narration is a feature that allows you to file and embed audio clips into your slide deck. you could then connect a narration icon for your slide, which plays when toggled. you could also set the audio to play robotically because the rest of the content is projected.

overview

Adding a voiceover to your PowerPoint slides can be a great way to add an extra layer of interest and engagement for your audience. Here are a few tips on how to do it:

– Choose a quiet location to record your voiceover. Background noise can be distracting and make it difficult for your audience to focus on your presentation.

– Make sure you have a good quality microphone. This will help ensure that your voice is clear and easy to hear.

– Practice your delivery before recording. This will help you feel more confident and make sure that your voice sounds natural.

– When recording, speak slowly and clearly. This will help your audience understand what you’re saying and follow along with your presentation.

– If you make a mistake, don’t worry! Just stop recording, take a deep breath, and start again. No one is perfect, and your audience will appreciate your effort to make a great presentation.

How to Add a Pre-recorded Narration to PowerPoint

1. To import a previously recorded audio file, click the Manage Narration button on the iSpring Suite ribbon.

2. In the Narration Editor, you’ll see a second-by-second timeline of slides and audio, and will be able to adjust their timings. If you want your audio or video to start at a particular moment of the presentation, place your cursor at that point of the timeline.

To import an audio file, click Audio on the Narration Editor ribbon and choose the file(s) you wish to add. To import a video file, click the Video button on the Narration Editor ribbon. iSpring Suite supports the following audio and video formats: WAV, MP3, WMA, AVI, WMV, MPG, MP4, and MKV.

3. In the Import Audio/Import Video window, specify whether the file(s) should be inserted at the current cursor position or at the beginning of the selected slide. Note that with iSpring Suite, you don’t necessarily have to synchronize the duration of slides and audio/video. To let the program automatically adjust each slide duration to the duration of the narration, select the Adjust slide duration option as shown in the screenshot below.

If you’ve added more than one file, they will be imported in alphabetical order. All the imported files are automatically saved in the presentation resource folder so they won’t get lost, even if you move the presentation to another folder or computer.

clear your Timings and Narrations

To clear your Timings and Narrations from the Normal View of PowerPoint, simply:

  1. Open the Slide Show tab
  2. Open the Record Slide Show drop down
  3. Select Clear
  4. Choose the Timings or Narrations you want to clear

If the Clear command is grayed out when you open the Record Slide Show drop down, that means that you do not have any Narrations or Timings (same as for transitions) set for your presentation.

Changing Audio Playback Options

PowerPoint users have a lot of power when it comes to changing PowerPoint audio playback options, whether it is adjusting the PowerPoint voiceover‘s speed, volume level, looping the audio, or playing it across Slides.

These audio options can be changed on the ‘Presenter View’ of PowerPoint. In this view, you have a lot more power when it comes to changing PowerPoint voiceover settings, as it gives users plenty of different options: Click Playback> and select any option that you desire. Choose to fade the audio in and out, loop the audio clip endlessly, trim it to your liking, and more in the playback tab.

Deleting Audio

If you made a mistake during the PowerPoint recording process and want to remove recorded or imported audio from your presentation, PowerPoint users can delete their audio clips quickly by simply highlighting the entire clip in the PowerPoint slide view window and pressing delete.
