4 Step-by-Step: Creating a PowerPoint with Voiceover To create a slide presentation with voice narration for sharing online, we will take several steps: 1. Create a slide presentation with voice narration (.pptx file) in MS PowerPoint 2010 using the application s voice- recording feature. A PowerPoint file with embedded audio significantly increases in size. Therefore, we will take additional steps to create a compressed video. 2. Save the PowerPoint file as a video (.wmv file). Turn your narrated slide presentation into a video. PowerPoint 2010 can save the presentation as a video in the.wmv format. Unfortunately, the.wmv file size would not be reduced as compared to a PowerPoint file. Further conversion is needed to produce a compressed video file that is compatible with common media players. 3. Convert the video to an.mp4 file. This file format reduces the video file size and makes it compatible with most common media players and mobile devices. You will need to install a third- party converter such as free HandBrake 4. Upload the video for sharing online: via a Blackboard site, itunes U, Digital Media Services server, or a personal web space. Read further for details and instructions for each step. Page 4 of 17

5 1. Create a Slide Presentation with Voice Narration in MS PowerPoint 2010 Things to remember: A PowerPoint file with embedded audio significantly increases in size. Therefore, we recommend that you turn the PowerPoint slide presentation into a compressed video following the steps outlined in this handout. It is not recommended to upload a PPT file with embedded audio to a Blackboard site if the file size exceeds 50 MB. It s a good practice to limit your online presentation to 15 min. Consider splitting a longer presentation into several parts. You can either record a narration during a slide show or before you run a slide show. We ll consider both methods in this guide. Record voice narration during a slide show Using this method, you will record narration as you run the presentation in the Slide Show view. Pros: Voice recording is easy and takes less time as compared to the other method. You are able to re- record individual slides easily. Cons: You won t be able to edit the recorded audio. Steps: 1. Open a presentation in PowerPoint and select the 1 st slide. 2. Save the presentation as.pptx file: Select File > Save as: Save as Type: PowerPoint Presentation. Create a new folder in your file directory and save the PowerPoint file there. 3. Select the Slide Show tab at the top. 4. Select the check box next to Play Narration, Use Timings, and Show Media Controls. 5. Start narration recording: Make sure Slide Show tab is pressed. Select Record Slide Show > Start recording from Beginning or Start recording from the current slide. Page 5 of 17

6 The Record Slide Show dialog box opens. 6. Choose recording settings: In the Record Slide Show dialog box, select both the Slide and animation timings and Narrations and laser pointer check box. 7. Record your voice: Click Start Recording. The presentation opens in the full screen mode with the Recording toolbar displayed in the upper left corner of the screen. WHILE recording: o Proceed through the slide show as you talk by pressing the right arrow key on your keyboard OR mouse clicking OR pressing the arrow in the Recording panel. o If you want to use your PPT notes, print them out in advance. o Keep silence 1-2 seconds between slides otherwise some of the audio recording may be chopped off. o Don t move back to the previous slide. If you make a mistake in recording, you can re- record your voice later (the entire narration or a specific slide). o To pause the recording, press Pause button in the Recording window. o To resume the recording, click Resume Recording. Page 6 of 17

7 8. End the voice recording: Press the ESCAPE (Esc key in the upper- left corner of your keyboard) OR right click the slide, and then click End Show. It may take a few seconds for the recorded slide show timings to be automatically saved. The slides appear in Slide Sorter view with timings beneath each slide. Each slide that has audio will have a sound icon in it. 9. Listen to the audio recording: o All slides: Select Slide Show > make sure Play Narration is selected > From Beginning or From Current Slide. o An individual slide: Double- click a slide thumbnail to switch to the Normal view. Point to the sound icon on the slide. The Player controls appear. Press the Play button. If you have other media on a slide, the recorded narration takes precedence over the media clips. 10. Delete the recorded audio: Select Slide Show > Record Slide Show (down arrow) > Clear > Clear Narration on Current Slide or Clear Narration on All Slides. 11. Re- record individual slides if necessary. Follow steps 3-6. Record voice narration before the slide show Using this method, you should first create an audio file with your voice narration using some free audio editing software, for example, Audacity. Then you ll insert the audio file in the PPT and set the timings for the slides to display at the right time of the narration. Pros: You are able to edit the voice narration. You are able to save the voice recording as an audio podcast. Cons: You ll have to use and learn a new piece of software. This method may take more time. Steps: 1. Record voice narration using the free audio editing software called Audacity and export the audio as.wav or.mp3 file. Page 7 of 17

8 a. Download and install free Audacity at b. Download free LAME MP3 encoder to be able to create MP3 files with Audacity. Remember the location where you save the file on your computer. Instructions: tml#lame c. For help with recording your voice and exporting it to an audio file with Audacity, visit or search YouTube videos. 2. Open the PowerPoint presentation. 3. Display slides in the Normal view: Select View > Normal. 4. Save the presentation as.pptx file: Select File > Save as - Save as Type: PowerPoint Presentation; Save in: Desktop > Save Here folder if you are using the Hoskins OIT lab laptop > Save. This action will ensure that you are saving the presentation in the most current file format, with enabled features for the media objects. 5. Insert the audio file that you created with Audacity - in the 1 st slide. a. Select the 1 st slide. b. Select Insert > Audio > Audio from File. c. Browse to the audio file saved on your computer and click Insert. A sound icon is displayed on the slide to indicate the inserted audio. 6. Modify the audio settings. a. Click on the sound icon to activate the Audio Tools tab at the top of the ribbon. b. Select Playback below the Audio Tools tab. Page 8 of 17

9 The Playback controls are displayed. c. Select Play across slides next to the Start drop- down menu. d. Check the Hide During Show box. This will make the sound icon invisible during the slide show. 7. Set the timings in the slide show. a. Select the Slide Show tab. b. Check the Play Narration, Use Timings, and Show Media Controls boxes. c. Press Rehearse Timings. The presentation opens in the full screen mode. The Recording toolbar may be displayed in the upper left corner of the screen. d. Proceed through the slide show as you listen to the recorded voice narration by pressing the right arrow key on your keyboard OR mouse clicking OR pressing the right arrow in the Recording toolbar. e. To pause the slide show, press Pause button in the Recording window. f. To resume the slide show, click Resume Recording. g. To end the slide show, press the ESCAPE (Esc key in the upper- left corner of your keyboard) OR right click the slide, and then click End Show. h. Press Yes to save the slide timings. Page 9 of 17

10 It may take a few seconds for the recorded slide show timings to be automatically saved. 8. Listen to the voice narration: Select Slide Show > From Beginning. You must start from the beginning because the audio file is inserted in the 1 st slide. Let the slideshow play as a movie, without clicking through the slides. 9. Adjust the timing of an individual slide manually. a. Select the slide which timing you want to change. b. Select the Transitions tab. c. In the Timing group, under Advance Slide, select the After check box and type the number of seconds that you want the slide to appear on the screen. 10. Save and close the presentation. Page 10 of 17

11 2. Save the PowerPoint file as a video (.wmv file format) PowerPoint 2010 allows you to save your slide presentation as a video. The format of the video file is the Windows Media Video (.wmv). While Windows users should have no problem playing this format of the video on their computer, Mac users should be instructed to download free Flip4Mac ( US/windows/products/windows- media- player/wmcomponents), a Windows Media component for the QuickTime player. 1. Have the PowerPoint file open. The file must be in the format compatible with MS Office If you open the file that you created in 2007, convert it before creating the video: File > Info > Convert. 2. Select File > Save and Send > Create Video. The Create a Video page opens on the right. 3. Determine the size of the video: Click on the Computer & HD Displays tab and select the dimensions of the video (the bigger the dimensions, the bigger file size). 4. Make sure Use Recorded Timings and Narrations is selected. 5. Click on Create Video. This action opens the Save As window. 6. Save the.wmv file on your computer. Track the progress of the video creation by looking at the a green bar at the bottom of the PPT screen. It may take up to several hours to create the video depending on the size and complexity of the presentation. 7. Play the video: Select the designated location of the video and double- click the.wmv file. Page 11 of 17

12 Parts of the presentation may not be included in the video: Media inserted in the file created in PPT 2007 and earlier. Solution: Open the file in PPT Select File > Info > Convert. QuickTime media Macros OLE/ActiveX controls. Page 12 of 17

13 3. Convert the Video to an.mp4 Format We recommend that you convert the video to an.mp4 video format. This format considerably reduces the file size and makes the video accessible for most common media players on Windows and Mac. Download and install a free third- party converter HandBrake 1. Click on Source and then Video File. 2. Browse for, select and open the PowerPoint presentation that you saved as a Windows Media File (.wmv). Page 13 of 17

14 3. If you have not set a default path you will get a warning. Click OK. 4. Select destination by clicking the Browse button. 5. The destination is the location where you want to save the converted file. Type a name in the File name box. Page 14 of 17

15 6. Check that container is set to MP4 File. 7. Click the Video tab and make sure that the video codec is set to H.264 (itunes requirement). 8. Accept all other defaults. Click the Start button to begin the conversion. Page 15 of 17

16 9. The Start button will change to Stop during the conversion. When it changes back to the green Start button, the conversion is complete. Page 16 of 17
