Microsoft Powerpoint is a tool that has changed the concept of presenting, whether these are office meeting or class lectures. Most people spend a lot of their time preparing PowerPoint presentations but still are unable to convey their idea to the audience. What content to add in slides and how to present is quite a skill or I would say an art within itself.
One of the very powerful features of Microsoft Powerpoint is its audio narration feature. Usually, people are unaware of this amazing aspect. This feature comes handy when you are not presenting to the people under the same roof and you have to explain the content of the slides to them.
So, if you have never heard about this feature or you have no idea about how to use it then you have no need to worry. In this article, we will demonstrate step by step how you can add your self recorded voice to the slides.
Follow the steps mentioned below to get started.
