Video: Recording narration for a slideshow

Recording a slideshow can serve a number of purposes. One of them is so you can do rehearsal and listen back to yourself and another way is to present or to send a version of your presentation perhaps to a client where you can talk over what you've done, explain it to them in real time rather than in a printed document. Let me demonstrate how it works here real quickly. I'm going to open up my Inspector, the Document Inspector. Under the Audio tab, you can see this section called Slideshow Recording. When I hit Record, it's going to start up the slideshow and it will record my voice and then it will save that out.

Recording narration for a slideshow

Recording a slideshow can serve a number of purposes. One of them is so you can do rehearsal and listen back to yourself and another way is to present or to send a version of your presentation perhaps to a client where you can talk over what you've done, explain it to them in real time rather than in a printed document. Let me demonstrate how it works here real quickly. I'm going to open up my Inspector, the Document Inspector. Under the Audio tab, you can see this section called Slideshow Recording. When I hit Record, it's going to start up the slideshow and it will record my voice and then it will save that out.

So, let me show you this. I'm going to hit Record and that's recording me live. And look at the indicator up in the upper left. That's letting me know we're on our recording. I'm going to hit the Advance key, just go through these three slides here and now I'll hit Escape. Now, you can see when we're back here in the Inspector, we've an indication that we've recorded something and it's actually now a part of the Keynote Play function. What I mean by that is if I go to Document here, Presentation mode changed now to Recorded mode. So, anytime I press Play, it's going to be playing back the recorded version of the presentation rather than the normal one. Let's now make a movie of that small recording that I made, we can see how that looks.

To do that, I'll go up to Share > Export, click on the QuickTime option and you can see here under Playback Uses, I have these choices, one of which is Recorded Timing. So, this means that it's going to output a QuickTime movie based on the recording that I just made or based on the recording that's in the memory. I'll unclick the Full Screen and for our purposes, I'm just going to create a somewhat low resolution one. Click Next. We give it a name. Click Export and then we're just doing a quick rendering of that file and now let's go find that file, open that up. Now, we'll play this back in QuickTime.

(Recording: So, now it's recording me live and look at the indicator up in the upper left.) (Recording: That's letting me know we're on our recording.) (Recording: I'm going to hit the Advance key, just go through these three slides here and now, I'll hit Escape.) That was my narration for what we recorded earlier. The final movie didn't have that indicator in the upper left of course. So, this is a very handy way to talk over your slides with a client perhaps, to give yourself some practice on how you sound and how you look with your show. When you're done with that recording, I'd recommend going over to the Audio tab and hitting Clear to get the recording out of the presentation. Go ahead and click Clear and the reason to do that is now when we're going to go back to the Document tab, you'll see our presentation has returned to Normal mode.

So, now you can go ahead, keep editing and it will behave as you've come expect. You can always go back, make another recording and try it again.
