In Presenter ‘09, most developers like to record on a slide-by-slide basis. But in some cases, you might find it easier to record across multiple slides instead. One example of this is if you're working with a subject-matter experts who like to record their own narration while advancing through their presentation.

Here we'll look at an easy way to record across multiple slides in Presenter.

Step 1: Adjust Your Presentation Options

First, you'll need to make sure your presentation options are set up to enable continuous recording:

  1. From the Articulate menu, choose Presentation Options.
  2. Select the Other tab.
  3. Under Recording, uncheck the box next to Record narration for one slide at a time.
  4. Click OK.

Step 2: Record Your Audio

Now you're ready to record:

  1. From the Articulate menu, select Record Narration.
  2. Click Start Recording when you're ready.
    • If your slide contains on-click animations, the Start Recording button changes to Next Animation when you begin recording. Click it to initiate the next animation in your sequence while you record.
    • If there aren't any animations left on a slide (or if there weren't any to begin with), the button changes to Next Slide. When you click, the next slide appears and Presenter continues recording your narration.
    • TIP: It's best to avoid speaking continuously while clicking Next Slide. Otherwise, your published output might contain a split-second break in your narration. This is because during the publishing process, audio is split into slide-specific segments.
  3. When you're finished recording, just click the stop button on the narration control panel.

Step 3: Review and Save Your Recording

  1. If you want, you can review the narration for any slide. Use the slide selector to move to any slide, and then click the play button to hear that slide's narration.
  2. If you want to do a re-take for any slide, you can click Start Recording to record new narration.
  3. Click Save & Close when you're finished.
