Why Should You Do a VoiceOver PowerPoint Presentation?

Here are a few reasons why you should create a voice-over PowerPoint presentation:

  • Accessibility

Adding a voiceover to your PowerPoint presentation helps enhance accessibility. People with sight-related issues can easily access your presentations if they have a narration. This can ensure more people can benefit from your presentations.

  • Enhanced Communication

With a voiceover PowerPoint presentation, you can enhance communication with your target audience. Audio can help the audience understand your tone, emphasis, and passion, which can enhance engagement.

  • Personal Connection

Using voiceover narration can help build a more personal connection with your audience. Audio narrations humanize your content, which can enhance your audience's experience.

  • Conciseness

Adding a voiceover to your presentation makes it concise. You can provide additional content while elaborating on bullet points inside the presentation. This helps you communicate more details without populating your slides with more text.

  • Easier to Digest

Audio content is easier to digest than written content. Adding a voiceover to your PPTs can make the information easier for the audience to consume, improving their experience with your presentations.

How To Add a Voiceover to a Video Using Recording Software

The key benefits of using dedicated recording software are better audio quality control, editing capabilities, and the ability to separately record and fine-tune the voiceover before combining it with your video project

here are the key steps to add a voiceover to a video using recording software:

Step 1. Set up your recording environment

Find a quiet room with minimal background noise and echo. You can use blankets or acoustic foam to reduce echo if needed. Ensure there will be no interruptions during recording.

Step 2. Choose your microphone

While built-in laptop/phone mics can work in a pinch, it's recommended to use an external USB microphone for better audio quality. Even an inexpensive mic ($50-100) will produce superior results compared to built-in mics.

Step 3. Select recording software

There are many options for audio recording software like Audacity (free), Audiate by TechSmith, or your video editing software's audio recording tool. Choose one that allows easy editing and exporting of audio files.

Step 4. Prepare your script

A written script helps maintain a consistent tone and pacing and reduces awkward pauses. Read it aloud beforehand to practice.

Step 5. Record your voiceover

Open your recording software, select the correct microphone input, and record your voiceover following the script. Do multiple takes if needed.

Step 6. Edit the audio

Use the recording software to trim out mistakes, remove silence, adjust volumes, and add any audio effects like equalization or noise reduction.

Step 7. Export the voiceover file

Export your final edited voiceover as an audio file (MP3, WAV, etc.) to import into your video editing software.

Step 8. Import and sync in the video editor

In your video editor, import the voiceover audio file and sync it with your video footage. Adjust audio levels as needed.

Why Isn't The Recording Working?

There are several reasons why your recording may not be working. Some common problems to check include:

  • Faulty Microphone

The most common issue that may be preventing your recording from working is a faulty microphone. If you are recording using an external microphone, try using another one to see if the option persists. Another thing you can do to diagnose the issue is to open a recording app on your computer and see if the recording works. If it doesn't, try changing your microphone.

  • Issues with Permissions

Another common reason the recording does not work for your voice-over PowerPoint presentation is permission issues. Make sure apps have permission to access your microphone. On your Windows laptop, go to Settings → Privacy & Security → Microphone and ensure Microsoft Access is on.
