Setting a Recording Audio Device in Mac OS X

Many applications, including PowerPoint allow you to record your voice using a connected microphone. In PowerPoint such recorded voice-overs work very well as slide narrations. However, if your connected microphone does not work using the recording options in PowerPoint or another application, then you may have to first find if the microphone hardware was detected or not by the Mac OS X. Also if detected, has it been selected for recording? In this tutorial, we will discover how you can take care of these concerns -- follow these steps to learn more.

Adobe Presenter: Add Presenters
Adobe Presenter: Add Presenters
Every presentation created has an intended presenter, who delivers the presentation. In Adobe Presenter you can assign a single presenter to all slides in a presentation, or assign different presenters to individual slides. You can not only assign presenter(s), but can also add detailed information about presenters such as the name, a photograph, their job title, a short biographical notes, a company logo, and also contact information. You don't have to fill in all fields. Adding a presenter will make your presentation more credible.

Removing Sections
If you want to logically categorize your presentation slides so that they can be easily managed, then you should use the Sections option. You are not just limited to adding and renaming Sections -- you can also move slides from one Section to another, or change the order of Sections, or collapse / expand Sections etc. Other than these activities, you can also remove a Section, as explained in this tutorial.

Removing Sections
Creating Sections in your presentation helps you to logically categorize your presentation slides so that you can easily manage them. Just adding and naming sections is not all that you can do. You can do more such as moving slides from one section to another, or changing the order of the sections, or collapsing / expanding sections etc. Other than these activities, you can also remove a section. This removing action itself has got few more options, as explained in this tutorial.

Animating Slide Objects While Media is Playing
Let's imagine you have a 3 minute video or audio clip. Exactly after the clip has played for a minute, you want some text to appear super-imposed above the video clip, or just show on the slide while the audio clip is playing. All this while, the original audio or video clip should continue playing. It might seem difficult, but you can end up with these results quite easily using the Trigger Animation option. These Trigger animations typically happen as a result of a click on some other slide object -- but in PowerPoint 2010, you can now cause Trigger animations to also happen on media playback through a Bookmark.

Pictures in Content or Picture Placeholders
Placeholders in PowerPoint make it easy for the users to insert any media file such as pictures, video, audio, etc. For Pictures, PowerPoint provides two placeholders - Content and Picture. Although both placeholders enable you to insert pictures, there is a difference in the way that pictures behave when inserted within these placeholders. In this tutorial we'll explore the difference in between Content and Picture placeholders.
