Imagine that you need to make a PowerPoint presentation but you want to keep record of your presentations, annotations, timing, etc. There are lots of software packages out there that enables you to do this easily, but did you know that powerpoint 2010 has a built-in recording feature?
What can you do with Record Slide Show?
Let’s see how to record a slide show presentation in powerpoint.
First, we need to open Slide Show menu and then click on Record Slide Show button. This will open a context menu with the following options: Start Recording from Beginning or from Current Slide.
Once you click on recording from Beginning or from Current Slide, a new dialog will appear.
Here you can choose if you want to record slide and animation timing and also narrations and laser pointers. The former lets you track timing and record everything related to presenter narration and the pointer.
Later, if you want to clear or start over, you can click on Clear menu and this will let you clear all recorded timings from the current slide or on all Slides. You can also clear the narrations and laser pointer.
