How to Make a PowerPoint Slideshow that Runs Automatically
The PowerPoint autoplay feature is an amazing tool to create slide carousels that advance automatically. Self-running PowerPoint presentations are great for leaving in kiosks or publicity booths. And you can even send them with recordings or voiceovers so you make sure your audience gets the most out of it. Forget about worrying about clicking from slide to slide by learning how to make a PowerPoint that runs automatically.
Why use an automatic PowerPoint slideshow?
Delivery is key when going through a PowerPoint presentation. However, having to click to go slide by slide can sometimes be very distracting and even spoil your rhythm. To avoid interrupting yourself, creating a PowerPoint slideshow that advances automatically slide by slide can be a great tool. You’ll be able to focus on what you’re saying without worrying if you’re showing the correct slide or not! For example, a Pecha Kucha presentation works perfectly with a self-running PowerPoint slideshow.
Learning how to make a PowerPoint slideshow run automatically can also be great for publicity. If you have a kiosk or booth, a self-running PowerPoint slideshow can help you reach more people without them having to speak one-on-one with a salesperson. PowerPoint is a naturally visually appealing tool, and it can be very useful as a “background” of sorts.
You can even use a self-running PowerPoint presentation for when you’re not able to be physically present. You can add voiceovers, recordings, and even laser pointer gestures to make sure your audience gets the most out of your presentation. You can use self-running PowerPoint slideshows to send them over or even leave them running on their own for an audience.
Luckily, PowerPoint’s autoplay feature makes it really easy to create a self-running slideshow. It includes several different options and nuances too, so you can customize your self-running slideshow to make it fit perfectly your needs.
Take into consideration what issues you need to cover. Do you need slides that just work as a background? Or do you need your slides to fit your speech and follow specific times? Do you want them to be just a complement to your presentation? Or should they have a narration in case you’re not present while the slides are running? Depending on these, you can use different autoplay settings to make the best possible fit for you.
PowerPoint autoplay vs slideshow loop
Self-running PowerPoint slideshows can sometimes get confused with looping presentations. But they are not mutually exclusive. In fact, they work perfectly together! An automatic PowerPoint slideshow is a presentation where you don’t need to click to advance to the next slide. A looping PowerPoint presentation is one that once it gets to the final slide, starts all over again from the beginning.
For example, a presentation where you want to focus on your delivery and not on advancing the slides. In this case, you can make a self-running PowerPoint, but you don’t really need your presentation to loop when you’re done. But for a PowerPoint that you’re going to leave running in a kiosk or booth as publicity, then you should probably make it loop! Check out the step by step guide below to learn how to make a PowerPoint slideshow that runs automatically and that also loops.
OPTION 1: How to make a PowerPoint play automatically
Using the PowerPoint autoplay feature is very easy. It also offers a wide array of options for a self-running slideshow. You can add personalized timings, add narrations and recordings, and in short, allow you to totally forget about manually advancing your slides.
1. Slide Show tab > Set Up Slide Show option
This tab will be your best friend for customizing the way your PowerPoint slides advance automatically. On the “Set Up” group, you’ll find the Set Up Slide Show option to start customizing your self-running presentation.
2. Pick a self-running PowerPoint option
Once you click on the Set Up Slide Show option, you’ll get a new window where you will be able to pick different options for a PowerPoint that runs automatically.
- Presented by a speaker is the default mode PowerPoint usually starts with. Most likely, all your presentations are already on this setup, where you click or use the keys to advance your slides.
- The Browsed by an individual is one of the options for creating a self-running PowerPoint. It’ll allow you to create a present your slides in a window (not in full screen like it usually does). Your viewers will not be able to advance from slide to slide. Make sure the option “ Use timings, if present ” is selected for this option to work correctly.
- Finally, the Browsed at a kiosk option allows you to make a full screen, continuous slideshow that runs automatically. This option locks in both the loop and the timings option. This means your slideshow will keep on running until you press ESC!
If you’re not sure what option is the best for you, remember you can always select manually the loop and timings option. Try different options with these and try out how your presentation will look like with the different settings.
3. Set your timings
Now that the basic setup is done, is time to set up the timings. This means defining how much time you want your PowerPoint slideshow to spend on each slide before automatically advancing to the next one.
Rehearse Timings will allow you to go through your presentation slide by slide, and it’ll record how much time you spend on each one. Remember that practice makes perfect! If you want your slides to fit perfectly your speech it’s worth it to spend some time and effort making sure your timings are precise.
After you’re finished going through all your slides, a message will pop up to save your timings. You can save it and keep rehearsing with your self-running PowerPoint.
4. If need to, add recordings
You can also use your automatic PowerPoint slideshow for a kiosk where you’ll not be present at all times. If you want to add a voiceover with commentary or explanation on your slides, you can record yourself and your presentation will automatically include them.
Select the Record Slide Show option for working on this. You can also customize if you want to add a recording of yourself with your camera or just your voice. You can even add pen commentary and highlight specific elements. It’ll be just like if you were right there with your viewers!
Finally, remember to try out your presentation before sending the final version. Creating an automatically self-running PowerPoint slideshow is not difficult, but it can take a minute to get used to all its features. Make sure your presentation is looking exactly as you want it to look.
OPTION 2: How to make a PowerPoint play automatically
The PowerPoint autoplay feature has a lot of great options to create a customized self-running slideshow to the nines. But if you need something way more simple, we’ve got you covered too!
This option is great if you just want your slides to advance automatically at regular intervals. If you don’t really need complex voiceovers, laser pointer gestures, and customized timing for each slide, then this option might work well for you. It creates an easy slide carousel that goes slide by slide.
1. Transitions tab
On the Transitions tab, locate the “Timings” group. Here’s where you’ll be working on!
2. Add your slide time
Manually add how much time you want to spend on each of your slides at the After option.
3. Apply To All
Make sure to select the Apply To All option so all your slides have the same timing. This is what will create regular intervals for your self-running PowerPoint slideshow.
You can also deselect the “On Mouse Click” option, depending on if you want to be able to advance your slides normally or not. Don’t forget that if you want your presentation to loop you can also add that manually at the Slide Show tab!
Get your own professional customized PowerPoint slides
These steps will help you make the perfect PowerPoint slideshow that runs automatically. But rehearsing is also key to a successful presentation! In order to get your self-running PowerPoint to perfectly fitted to your speech, there are no shortcuts. Practice is a must for creating a truly outstanding presentation.
If you’re looking to create a presentation that truly wows your audience, you might want to put some time and effort into your presentation design too! Your slides can help you convey professionalism, creativity, and how meticulous and detail-oriented you are. Or, on the other hand, a poor presentation design can make you look lazy, improvised, and careless. How your presentation looks is your business presentation card, and it can deeply influence the impression the audience will get out of you.
24Slides creates custom PowerPoint designs for some of the biggest companies all around the world. You can trust our designers to work on a slide design that will not only convey all your information perfectly but also create a big impression on your audience. Send us your slides and in 24 hours you’ll get a custom PowerPoint design that will certainly remain in your audience’s mind long after your presentation is over!

Set the timing and speed of a transition
You can modify the duration of a transition, modify the transition effect, and even specify a sound to play during a transition. Also, you can specify the time to spend on a slide before advancing to the next.
Set the speed of a transition
Use Duration to set transition speed. A shorter duration means that a slide advances faster, and a larger number makes the slide advance more slowly.
Select the slide that has the transition that you want to modify.
On the Transitions tab, in the Timing group, in the Duration box, type the number of seconds that you want.
Tip: If you want all the slide show's transitions to use the same speed, click Apply to All .
Modify the effect options for a transition
Many, but not all, of the transitions in PowerPoint can be customized.
Select the slide that has the transition you want to modify.
On the Transitions tab, in the Transition to This Slide group, click Effect Options and select the option that you want.
In this example, a Gallery transition is applied to the slide and the From Right option is selected.
A Gallery transition, with the From Right option selected, during a presentation.
Specify a time to advance to the next slide
Advance Slide sets the transition timing by specifying how long a slide stays in view before the transition to the next slide begins. If no timing is selected, slides advance when you click the mouse.
Select the slide that you want to set the timing for.
On the Transitions tab, in the Timing group, under Advance Slide , do one of the following:
To make the slide advance to the next slide when you click the mouse, select the On Mouse Click check box.
To make the slide advance automatically, select the After check box, and then enter the number of minutes or seconds that you want. The timer starts when the final animation or other effect on the slide finishes.
To enable both the mouse and automatic advance, select both the On Mouse Click check box and the After check box. Then, at After , enter the number of minutes or seconds that you want. The slide will advance automatically, but you can advance it more quickly by clicking the mouse.
Tip: If you want all the slides to advance using the same speed, click Apply to All .
Set a sound to play during a transition
On the Transitions tab, in the Timing group, in the Sound list, select the sound that you want.
Note: If you want to use your own sound, in the Sound list, select Other Sound . Then, in the Add Audio dialog box, select the sound that you want, and then click OK
Rehearse your presentation
As you rehearse, the timer records the amount of time you spend on each slide and the total amount of time spent on all slides. The timer automatically starts when you enter Presenter View.
In the latest PowerPoint for Mac: Go to Slide Show > Set Up > Rehearse Timings .
In PowerPoint for Mac 2011: On the Slide Show tab, under Presenter Tools , click Rehearse .
Begin to practice your presentation.
When you reach the last slide or exit Presenter View, PowerPoint prompts you to save the timings.
Pause, start, or reset the timer
The timer automatically starts when you enter Presenter View. However, you can pause and then restart the timer if you need to stop to type notes for the current slide or take a break. See the following table for details.
Rehearsed slide timings aren't turned on by default. If you want to use the timings as you present, you can turn the timing on before you play the slide show. On the Slide Show tab, in Set Up , select the Use Timings check box.
Add speaker notes while you rehearse
On the left side of the notes pane, you can see any speaker notes that you entered for the current slide when you created the presentation. However, you can also type additional notes while you rehearse.
Click inside the notes pane on the right, and then type your meeting notes.
Note: When you exit Presenter View, the additional notes are appended to the end of the notes for the slide that was in view when you typed them.
Turn slide timings off
If you previously recorded your presentation and saved the slide timings, the slides may be set to automatically advance according to the saved timings when you play the slide show. If you don't want to use the timings as you present, you can turn them off.
On the Slide Show tab, in Set Up , clear the Use Timings check box.
Add, change, or remove transitions between slides

Automatically move to a specific slide in Powerpoint?
After showing some animation introduction on slide number 2, I want Powerpoint to automatically move to slide number 6. Is there any way to for me to tell Powerpoint to automatically move to a specific slide without having to trigger a click? Thanks.
- What have you tried? Because basic functions within PowerPoint make this possible, any details of what you've tried will help get you an answer. – CharlieRB Nov 12, 2012 at 14:41
- And to help understand the problem, is there some reason why you can't move slide 6 to slide 3 (ie, so that it immediately follows slide 2)? – Steve Rindsberg Nov 12, 2012 at 16:59
- @CharlieRB I can only see there is an option to advance ONE slide after an amount of time in the Transitions menu, not moving to further slides so I asked there. – Teiv Nov 13, 2012 at 9:12
- @SteveRindsberg I'm preparing for my teaching material. I want to first show some introduction on slide 2 and move to slide 6 for a short question. And after that I will move back to slide 3 and continue the lesson normally until when slide 6 is on screen again, I will give some explanation to this question. Maybe it's illogical a bit? – Teiv Nov 13, 2012 at 9:15
- 2 Then only way to skip slides is to hide them. In that case, they won't show at all. The easiest way to do as you described; make a copy of slide 6 as slide 3. You will then have flow you are looking for. – CharlieRB Nov 13, 2012 at 12:29
4 Answers 4
Between my suggestions and CharlieRB's I think you have an answer so I'll summarize here.
You can put a copy of Slide 6 right after Slide 2 and have it automatically appear, then proceed with the rest of the slides, eventually landing on Slide 6, the original, again.
Or you could put Slide 6 right after Slide 2, then on Slide 6, add a hyperlink to a custom show composed of slides 3,4,5, and checkmark the option to show and return. You'd land on slide 6, click the link when ready; you'd then be able to view 3,4,5 and when done, PPT would automatically return you to slide 6. You'd want to hide slides 3,4,5 so that when you're done with slide 6, you'd move on to slide 7.
In all cases, I'm using your original numbering, but you'd actually have, in the first example:
and in the second example:
The current Office 365 releases of PowerPoint offer another option - Slide Zooms. On the Insert tab, click Zoom > select zoom type
The Zoom feature creates hyperlinked thumbnails of selected slides on a summary slide. Clicking the thumbnail jumps to that part of the presentation. Getting to the end of that part returns you to the summary slide. I organize my presentations into sections, so the Section Zoom has been very helpful in casually moving around the presentation, and is more visually interesting than a text list of hyperlinks.
An alternative method of achieving the end goal is to use the various slide navigation options in presentation view, or re-order the slides as was mentioned. My favourite navigation trick is to type the number of the slide I want, and press ENTER. If I want slide 6, I type 6 ENTER. That's it. So easy.
For a more sophisticated method of branching that doesn't tie you into a specific order of presentation, place an object on the slide and add a hyperlink to the desired slide. Want to go from slide 3 to slide 6? Click the object. Want to go from slide 3 to slide 4? Don't click the image. Place the corresponding return hyperlinked object on the destination slide.
Use any of the above-mentioned strategies (including Custom Shows) to go to your desired next slide.
You can use a custom show.
In PowerPoint 2013 on Windows, select the "Slide Show" tab on the ribbon. Then select "Custom Slide Show" and click "Custom Shows..." to see/edit all shows. A dialog window will pop up and here you can click "New...". Now you can add each slide you want, in whatever order you want, and even use them multiple times. The best part about this is that if you change a slide you used multiple times, each instance is updated (because they're really just the same slide). This capability has been in PowerPoint at least since 2003; the steps to configure it may vary.
In order to use this custom show, you can select the "Slide Show" tab, then select "Custom Slide Show" and click the custom show you created in the drop down list.
You can make your custom slide show be shown as the default. On the "Slide Show" tab, click on "Set Up Slide Show"; under "Show Slides", click on "Custom Show" and select the custom show that you want. Now, if you click one of the "Start Slide Show" buttons or press F5 , PowerPoint will display your selected show.
The way to do this is to create an invisible object over the entire slide - with a hyperlink to the slide you want to go to (slide 6).
- Create a rectangle the size of the entire slide
- Use Hyperlink to link it to slide 6
- set it in front of everything
Note: This won't work if the user is using the keyboard to advance the slide. It will work if he or she clicks the mouse anywhere on the slide to advance it.

How to Automate Animation and Slideshow Transitions in PowerPoint
You can set your existing PowerPoint animations to play automatically so that you don't have to click the slide area to make the next item appear. You can also set the slide transitions to progress automatically, so there is no need to click to proceed to the next slide in your show. These instructions are for PowerPoint 2016, 2013, and 2010. The tabs and section headings may vary slightly in appearance, but the terminology in these instructions will remain the same between each version of PowerPoint.
Automate Slide Animations
- Open your PowerPoint slideshow.
- Click the [Animations] tab > From the "Advanced Animation" group, click "Animation Pane".
- Right-click the first animation > Select "Start With Previous". This will cause your first animation to start as soon as the slide appears on the screen.
- For each of the remaining animations in your list, right-click and then select "Start After Previous." This will cause all other animations on the slide to occur automatically in the order you have listed them.
- To adjust the time each animations occurs, click the up and down arrows in the "Duration:" field located within the "Timing" group.
- To adjust the time before the next animation appears, click the up and down arrows in the "Delay:" field located within the "Timing" group.
Automate Slide Transitions
- Click the [Transitions] tab > From the "Transition to This Slide" group, choose the transition you would like to apply to the selected slide.
- To modify the transition speed, adjust the "Duration" drop-down list in the "Timing" group.
- From the "Timing" group, uncheck "On Mouse Click."
- From the "Timing" group, check "After" and modify the drop-down list to display the number of seconds you would like between slides.
- To apply slide transition preferences to all slides, from the "Timing" group, select "Apply to All" or go to each slide and repeat the above steps for each individual slide.
- Save (Ctrl + S) your presentation and run the slideshow (F5) to view your changes.

How to Make PowerPoint Slides Advance Automatically
Most of the time, a presentation is better off with manual control where the presenter uses a clicker to move between slides . But again, this is most of the time. Sometimes, you might want to make the slide to advanced automatically after a period of time.
In PowerPoint, you can make the slides advance automatically after a specific time you set. Here’s how.
1. First, open the presentation on PowerPoint .
3. After that, click Select > Select All . This will make all the slides selected.
6. Still on the Transitions menu, remove the checkmark from On Mouse Click .
8. Lastly, try to run the Slide Show and see if the slides are advancing automatically.
Remember, you can assign different duration on each slide. To do that, you may skip steps 1,2, and 3 and just set the “Advance Slide” setting (step 7) on every slide in the document. This process can be exhausting if there are tons of slides involved, but that’s the only way possible.
In conjunction with that, I suggest you also add a looping effect to the presentation . This will prevent the presentation from abruptly stopping when the slides are over and instead will start all over again from the first slide.

How to Auto-Advance PowerPoint 365
February 28, 2023 by Mitch Bartlett 13 Comments
Want to automatically advance the slides during your presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint 365? You can using these steps.
- Open the presentation file you wish to automate, then select “ Home “
- Select anywhere in the left “ Slides ” pane.
- Select the individual slide you would like to advance automatically. If you want to advance all of the slides for the same amount of time, select one slide in the left pane, then press “ Ctrl ” + “ A ” to highlight all slides.
- Select the “ Transitions ” tab.
- In the “ Advance Slide ” area, check the “ After ” check box, then set the amount of time that should elapse before PowerPoint advances to the next slide. You can also select the transition effect, such as “ Cut “, “ Fade “, or “ Wipe “.
Now your slides should change to the next one automatically. You can test the functionality by going to “ View ” > “ Reading View “
Why don’t I have the Advance Slide option showing in my PowerPoint?
Be sure that the window is maximized so that you can see all of the options on the ribbon. If it is still missing, you can add the button back by selecting the “ Customize Quick Access ” arrow, then selecting “ More commands… ” at the upper-left portion of the window. From there select “ Quick Access Toolbar ” to modify the options available. You should be able to add the “Transition” command from the left side of the screen to the right.
If you want to take the easy way, just select the “ Reset ” button.

We are a church and use PowerPoint every week to project our order of worship, songs, etc. These slides are advance by a mouse click as we have someone stationed at the sound/media center. We now have created a number of slides related to upcoming events. We have these slides set up to automatically advance and are on a loop so it can run continuously until the service begins.
Our question is can we incorporate the auto-advance/looping slides into the prezo that advances by mouse click. In this way, the media operator could click escape and seamlessly move to the first slide of the worship service. Is this possible?

PowerPoint: Automatically move to next slide after animation ends
As a basic presentation tool, PowerPoint is great and used correctly, the animation features can create some decent flows but I’ve always been frustrated by the fact that you cannot set individual slides to get to the end of their animations and automatically move to the next slide.
There’s a bunch of suggestions out there such as using Rehearsal timing (doesn’t really work outside of rehearsal timing) or using macros which require coding knowledge and trigger all sorts of security warnings (not great for files that are often emailed outside of organisations).
The Solution (sort of)
I found a solution that works for my use-case which is for animated ‘exit transitions’ (where elements on a title page animate in, then animate out on another slide) and that is simply to use the Advanced Slide After: xx:xx.xx option on the transitions tab for each slide.
Let’s take a slide from a presentation for my cyber security company Seguro , I have the following as a title slide which nicely animates the title IN as soon as the slide loads:
When I’m presenting, I want to stand there and say “Now I’ll talk about attacking passwords” then click next, at this stage I want the following slide to load, show the exit animation and then MOVE AUTOMATICALLY TO THE NEXT SLIDE:
The problem is there is not simple step I can chain to the end of the exit animations to say “Now move to the next slide” (MIcrosoft, if you’re listening please add this feature). If I leave this as it is, the animations stops on a green empty page until I rememger to click next again – not very fluid.
Instead, I add up how long the exit animation takes by clicking on each of the steps and adding the time together. In the example above, it’s 0.25 seconds + 0.5 seconds + 0.5 seconds (because the middle 3 animations play at the same time).
Now I go to the Transitions tab in PowerPoint, on the far right-hand side there is an option to select Advance slide , check the After checkbox and enter the total animation time (for me, that’s 00:01.25 seconds):
Now no matter what, that slide shows for 1.25 seconds and then moves on.

How to Make a PowerPoint Presentation Play Automatically
PowerPoint remains one of the most versatile and widely used presentation software tools. Thanks to an increasingly diverse suite of tools and capabilities, PowerPoint serves as a sturdy anchor for individuals across a variety of industries during speeches, presentations and just about anything in between.
One of the most helpful tools found inside PowerPoint is the option to play a presentation automatically, which is particularly useful if you are creating a presentation that will run without your oversight or participation, such as at a freestanding kiosk or exhibition. A PowerPoint automatic slideshow can be configured quickly in only a few quick steps.

Preparing Your PowerPoint Autoplay Functions
After you finish creating the slides for your PowerPoint presentation, you are ready to configure the autoplay functions. First, confirm that all your slides have the desired content and are in the appropriate order. Although you can make changes at a later point, it doesn't hurt to take a moment at this stage of the process to review your presentation as a whole. After you confirm the arrangement and content, open the "Slide Show" tab and press the "Set Up Slide Show" button. You have the option to configure your presentation for three automatic play modes: "Presented by a speaker (full screen)," "Browsed by an individual (window)" and "Browsed at a Kiosk (full screen)." Your selection determines how users can interact with the slides at any given time.
PowerPoint Slideshow Loop Options
If you select "Presented by a speaker," the slideshow runs automatically behind you as you speak to your audience. When you opt for "Browsed by an individual" as your automatic play mode, individuals can manually navigate through your presentation, which then loops and returns to the first slide upon completion of the deck. If "Browsed at a Kiosk" mode is selected, the slides progress automatically on a loop until an individual exits from the presentation entirely by pressing the "Escape" key. When "Browsed at a Kiosk" mode is selected, you configure the amount of time that elapses between slides. For example, if your presentation includes slides that contain a large amount of content, you may want to set a long delay between slide transitions to give the viewers time to review all the content on each slide.
Other Opportunities to Explore
PowerPoint autoplay has proven itself to be an integral component of the software and for good reason. In addition to the customization features mentioned here, you can also automate a variety of additional tasks, including PowerPoint animations during slide transitions and the length of time that these animations occur as one slide transitions to another. Whatever your specific needs may be, the chances are good that PowerPoint's unique set of resources can help you get the job done.

Applies to: Microsoft ® PowerPoint ® 2013, 2016, 2019 and 365 (Windows)
You can set up self-running PowerPoint slide shows to run automatically at trade shows, conventions, events or as web-based presentations. Prior to setting up a self-running presentation, you'll need to apply your preferred animations to text and objects as well as any slide transitions to be be included in the show (unless specified otherwise in the Set Up Show dialog box).

Setting up a self-running presentation
When you set up a self-running presentation, you can choose 3 options in the Set Up Show dialog box depending on your audience:
To set up a PowerPoint presentation to run automatically, but allow those watching the slide show to have control over when they advance slides:
- Click the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon and then click Set Up Slide Show. A dialog box appears.
- Under Show type, select Presented by a speaker (full screen). This is the default setting for slide shows.
To set up a presentation to run automatically, but those watching the slide show do NOT have control over when slides advance:

To set up a presentation to run automatically, but those watching the slide show do NOT have control over when slides advance and the presentation repeats until the people watching press Escape (ESC):
- Under Show type, select Browsed at kiosk (full screen).
Setting slide timings manually
You can choose to rehearse slide timings or you can manually set the slide timings for your PowerPoint slides using the Transitions tab in the Ribbon.
To set slide timings manually:
- Click the View tab in the Ribbon and then click Slide Sorter.
- Select the slide for which you want to set timing.
- Click the Transitions tab in the Ribbon.
- In the Timing group, under Advance Slide, select the After check box and then enter the number of seconds indicating how long the slide should appear on the screen. If you want the next slide to appear either when you click the mouse or automatically after the number of seconds that you enter (whichever comes first), select both the On Mouse Click and the After check boxes.
- Repeat the process for each slide for which you want to set timing.
Rehearsing and recording slide timings
If you choose Browsed by an individual (window) or Browsed at a kiosk (full screen) in the Set Up Show dialog box, you can rehearse and record timings for animations, transitions and advancing slides.
To rehearse timings, you'll use the Rehearsal toolbar shown below:
The toolbar includes the following buttons from left to right:
- Next (advance to next slide)
- Total presentation time
Click the buttons in the Rehearsal toolbar to perform the following actions:
- Click Next to advance to the next slide.
- To temporarily stop recording the time, click Pause.
- To restart recording the time after pausing, click Pause.
- To set an exact length of time for a slide to appear, type the length of time in the Slide Time box.
- To restart recording the time for the current slide, click Repeat.
To rehearse timings:
- Click the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon and then click Rehearse Timings. The Rehearsal toolbar appears and the timer begins immediately. The presentation appears in full screen recording mode.
- Click the desired buttons. Click Next to advance to the next slide or press the right arrow on your keyboard. To temporarily stop recording the time, click Pause. To restart recording the time after pausing, click Pause. To set an exact length of time for a slide to appear, type the length of time in the Slide Time box. To restart recording the time for the current slide, click Repeat.
- Continue clicking on the appropriate buttons until you are satisfied with the timings. The total presentation time appears on the top right of the Rehearsal toolbar.
- After you set the time for the last slide, a dialog box displays the total time for the presentation and another dialog box appears.
- To keep the recorded slide timings, click Yes. To discard the recorded slide timings, click No.
The presentation appears. If you view the presentation in Slide Sorter View, the slide timing is displayed below each slide.
Recording a slide show with timings
Instead of using the Rehearse Timings button, you can record timings (and narrations or voice over) as you record a show. The Record Slide Show button appears on the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon. When you record a slide show, you can start from the beginning or the current slide:
After you choose to record a slide show, you will have the option of including slide and animation timings as well as narrations, ink, and laser pointer (2010 users will not have the option of recording ink annotations):
If you select Slide and animation timings, PowerPoint automatically records the time you spend on each slide, including animations and triggers on each slide. If you have already rehearsed timings, they will be replaced.
If you use the pen, highlighter, eraser or laser pointer, those will also be recorded. Pen, highlighter, and eraser recording are available only if you have PowerPoint 2013 (and run updates) or a later version of PowerPoint. In earlier versions of PowerPoint, pen and highlighter strokes are saved as ink annotation shapes. To learn more about including ink, check out the article How to Draw on PowerPoint Slides on the Fly During a Presentation (Using Ink) .
To record a slide show and include animations and timings:
- Click the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon and then click the arrow beside Record Slide Show. A drop-down menu appears.
- Select Start Recording from Beginning or Start Recording from Current Slide. A dialog box appears.
- Select the option to include slide and animation timings.
- Click Start Recording. The Rehearsal toolbar appears and the timer begins immediately. The presentation appears in full screen recording mode.
- If you want to record timings, click the desired buttons. Click Next to advance to the next slide or press the right arrow on your keyboard. To temporarily stop recording the time, click Pause. To restart recording the time after pausing, click Pause. To set an exact length of time for a slide to appear, type the length of time in the Slide Time box. To restart recording the time for the current slide, click Repeat.
- To end your recording at any time, right-click on a slide and select End Show from the menu.
The presentation appears. In Slide Sorter view, the slide timing is displayed below each slide.
Recording narrations or voice over
In addition to timings, you may want to add narrations or voice over. You can record narrations before you run a presentation or you can record narrations during a presentation and include audience comments. When you add narrations, PowerPoint automatically records your slide timings. Alternatively, you can set the slide timings first. Be sure to test the microphone first. If you do not want narrations throughout your entire presentation, you can record separate sounds or comments on selected slides or objects.
To record narrations, your computer requires a sound card, microphone, speakers and a webcam (optionally). You will also need a microphone connector if the microphone is not part of your computer.
It's not a bad idea to create a script first in Microsoft Word to improve flow and avoid filler words such as "um". You may also want to practice before recording although you can always re-record narration.
To record a slide show with narrations:
- In the Record Slide Show dialog box, select the check box for Narrations and laser pointer and, if required, select or deselect the Slide and animation timings check box.
- Click Start Recording. A Rehearsal toolbar appears.
- Speak into the microphone to record a narration.
- To pause the narration, in the Rehearsal toolbar, click Pause. To resume the narration, click Resume Recording.
- To end your slide show recording at any rime, right-click on the slide and then select End Show.
The recorded slide show timings and narrations are saved. If you view the presentation in Slide Sorter view, timings appear beneath each slide. A sound icon also appears in the lower-right corner of each slide that has narration.
If you re-record your narration (including audio, ink, and laser pointer), PowerPoint erases your previously recorded narration (including audio, ink, and laser pointer) when you start recording again on the same slide.
To use ink, eraser, or the laser pointer during your recording, right-click on the slide, select Pointer options and choose the laser pointer, pen, highlighter or eraser. Ink is not available for 2010 users. If you want to display a laser pointer while you're recording, press Control and your pointer will appear as a small red circle on your screen.
If you want to listen to the narration on a slide:
- In Normal View, click the sound icon in the lower-right corner of the slide.
- Click Play.
Running a recorded slide show
To run a recorded slide show in Normal View:
- If necessary, on the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon, click Set Up Slide Show. A dialog box appears.
- Under Show type, select the desired option.
- On the Slide Show tab, click From Beginning or From Current Slide. During playback, your animations, inking actions, laser pointer, audio and video play in sync.
- To end the show, press Escape.
Turning timings or narrations off
You can turn off timings and narrations and then turn them on again at any time.
To turn off recorded slide timings, on the Slide Show tab, deselect the Use Timings check box.
To turn off recorded narrations, ink, and the laser pointer, on the Slide Show tab, deselect the Play Narrations check box.
Deleting timings or narration
You can use the Clear command to permanently delete timings or narration from your slide show recording. You have 4 options:
- Delete timings on the current slide
- Delete timings on all slides
- Delete narration on the current slide
- Delete narration on all slides
To clear timings or narrations:
- On the Slide Show tab, click the arrow below Record Slide Show. A menu appears.
- Select Clear and then the appropriate clear option.
Once you have recorded a presentation, you can later save it as a video if you'd like.
