Record narration and timings

  1. Select Slide Show > Record Slide Show.
  2. Choose from two options:
  • Start Recording from Beginning - to record from the beginning of a presentation.

Note: Audio won't record when slide transitions happen so let these play first before you start speaking.

Manage recordings

There are different ways to manage recordings in your presentation:

  • Pause - to pause a recording.
  • Close - to end a recording.
  • Laser Pointer, Pen, Highlighter, or Eraser - to use the pointer, ink, eraser, or highlighter tools in your recording.

You can also remove recordings from slides.

    • Clear Narration on All Slides - to delete narration on all slides at once.
