Record Narration/Sound in PowerPoint 2003 & 2007

Postby chilsamvon » Mon Oct 29, 2012 5:39 am

A narration or sound is often accompanied with a PowerPoint presentation, especially a PowerPoint photo album or a PowerPoint video slideshow. (You can also convert PowerPoint to video or burn PowerPoint to DVD for wide sharing.) Do you know how to record your narration/sound for embedding to your PowerPoint presentation as a business ad on the Web? If you are a novice of PowerPoint, you may find it a no-brainer with this article, which gives the step-by-step guide on recording a narration in PowerPoint 2003 and 2007.

Before the narration recording, make sure you have a working microphone hooked to your PC.

To record a sound for a PowerPoint 2003/2007 presentation, you can follow the steps below:
1. Open the PowerPoint presentation you are going to record a sound in, and go to Insert -> Movies and Sounds -> Record Sound
2. In the following Record Sound dialog, in the Name field, enter a name for the recording to come.
3. Next, at the bottom of the dialog, click the red dot (the Record button) to start recording a sound.
4. When finished, click the blue square (the Stop button) on the left of the Record button.
5. To test the recorded sound, click the blue triangle (the Play button).
6. Record another sound if the existing one is not satisfying. To confirm the recorded sound, click OK. The sound icon is displayed on the current slide.

Personally, I recommend you record your voice narration with the Record Narration feature under Slide Show, which results in superior audio synchronization to the static Insert from Sound method.

Recording a narration or sound for your course or sales PowerPoint presentation, a live supplement to you as a presenter, is a pleasant bet for particular online distribution.
