More sensual the experience, better the experience.

It’s true for all forms of experience, be it cinema, television, food, or your presentations. The more senses that you bring in while viewing a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation, the richer the experience for your viewers.

It’s time that you create presentations that are not just a visual media but an audio-visual media. That’s right. Why go mute when you can insert audio in your presentation and make the viewing experience richer, more personal and thus more enjoyable.

Both PowerPoint and Keynote give you the option to add all kinds of sound in your presentation. Are you apprehensive that the same would not be supported on presentation sharing platforms? Not anymore.

authorSTREAM supports music, voiceover narration and animation/transition sounds in a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation. So that you can showcase your presentations online the way you wanted them to be seen.

Add these sounds to your presentation:

Would you prefer watching a presentation on Oscars without any sound or with the Oscars soundtrack playing in the background?  A soccer presentation with just visuals or with a popular soccer anthem? Practically, every interesting presentation will come to life if there’s music accompanying the visual deck. Hear and see for yourself:

Voiceover narrationTrust us, it will be far easier for your viewers to understand a lesson you have prepared or a tutorial that you have created if you add your own audio. That ways, you need not clutter your slides with loads of text, you can just put the main information out there while explain the details through your commentary. You can do that with Record Slideshow feature in PowerPoint and Keynote and we’ll support that! Here’s a presentation by Emma Sutton who makes watching presentations an unforgettable experience for viewers with her powerful voice:

Animation/transition soundsPepper your slides with animation or transition sounds. The sound of applause at the end of slideshow, cash register, drum roll, hammer or any sound of your own is great when you want to amuse and engage the viewers.
