Add Narration To PowerPoint 97

With PowerPoint 97, you can easily add voice narration to your presentation. (You'll need a sound card and microphone, of course.) A recorded narration integrated with your presentation makes it easy for you to distribute your presentation and is a perfect way to get info to people who can't make it to a live version. You can even record your presentation as you deliver it. Here's how:

  1. Open your presentation.

  2. From the Slide Show menu, choose Record Narration.

  3. When you're ready to proceed, click OK, and start your narration.

PowerPoint 97 will attach your recorded comments to the presentation and will automatically change slides at the correct points when you run the presentation later. You can choose several sound-quality levels; the default Radio Quality is sufficient for voice-overs and uses about 10K for each second of narration. A five-minute speech consumes some 300K.
