What you read in this article

Google Slides is free. Voice overs are not available in the app. This is our step-by-step guide to adding voice overs to Google Slides.


1- Create your slides and script

Your script should be written. Next, create slides that correspond to your script. Google Slides requires marking the copy you wish to appear on each slide.


2- Write down your slide script.

You can record audio using Voice Recorder or Voice Memos for Mac. We also recommend Online Vocal Recorder.

Record your script slide by slide using the red microphone. As you record, the audio wave will appear in real time.

To start recording, click the record button.

Once you are done, click Stop. The next screen will be the editing screen. To remove any air, trim the audio. Next, click on the Save button.

 Record each slide. Your download folder will contain the saved files, numbered in a sequential order.


3- Google Slides allows you to upload audio files.

Create a folder in Google Drive for your audio clips.

Upload the audio files that you have just created to this Google Folder.


4- You can add audio clips to your Google Slides presentation.

Open Google Slides and add audio to the slide. Click Insert > Audio. Select the audio file that corresponds to that slide.


Two things will occur when you insert the audio clip:

  • A slide icon showing a speaker will be displayed with a mini-player that allows you to preview the audio. This icon can be moved to any position on your screen.
  • An option tab for format option’s will be opened.

You can have the clip automatically start for online courses. This allows students to navigate the presentation easily without manually clicking the audio icon.

Select “Stop on slide changes.” If you do not, the audio will play over the next slide.
