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:
- From the Articulate menu, choose Presentation Options.
- Select the Other tab.
- Under Recording, uncheck the box next to Record narration for one slide at a time.
- Click OK.
Step 2: Record Your Audio
Now you're ready to record:
- From the Articulate menu, select Record Narration.
- 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.
- When you're finished recording, just click the stop button on the narration control panel.
Step 3: Review and Save Your Recording
- 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.
- If you want to do a re-take for any slide, you can click Start Recording to record new narration.
- Click Save & Close when you're finished.
