You can record a narrator's voice to play throughout your slide show. You might use this technique for slide shows that run by themselves without a presenter. Begin by preparing a script for the presentation, making sure you know what the narrator should say for each slide.


Rehearse First

It's a good practice to rehearse your narration before attempting to record your voice.

Checking Your Microphone

Click the Set Microphone Level button in the Record Narration dialog box to test your microphone before recording. Then, speak into the microphone and watch the monitor scale for changes in display.

At the end of the slide show, a dialog box appears. Click Save to save the slide timings along with the narration.
