Let's put the audio file in the slide presentation such as PowerPoint. Recommended software and how to put
June 28, 2021
Welcome to Ondoku website.
Making slides and presentations with PowerPoint is quite difficult.
How to make it easy to understand and how to convey the appeal to the other person are always troublesome for the slide maker.
With slides such as PowerPoint, it will be possible to make the presentation easier to understand by adding audio in addition to illustrations and photos.
- I am not confident in my own tongue.
- I want to talk in a clear and easy-to-understand way.
- I want to give a sense of presence by adding variations of speaking voice such as men and women.
Even in such cases, it is very effective to make a presentation or slide narration by using a voice reading software.
This technique has been receiving a lot of attention in some parts, and I also received inquiries such as.
"Is it okay to use audio for in-house slides?"
It is OK for commercial use. (Please use credit notation for free plan.)
It can also be used for in-house presentations and tasks such as reading sentences during work.
For more information on commercial use, please click here .
Here, we will introduce how to input voices and make attractive slides by using voice reading software.
Reading aloud software that allows you to put audio on slides
There are many other voice-reading softwares, but this time I recommend Ondoku.
There are three reasons to recommend Ondoku.
- It is available for commercial use
- No software installation is required
- It is easy to download audio
With a company computer, there are various hurdles to download softwares from the viewpoint of internal security.
However, if you use Ondoku, you don't need to install anything and everything is completed on the web, so it is convenient.
It's also nice that downloading audio files is very easy!
How to make audio files for slides
Creating an audio file that can be inserted into a slide such as PowerPoint is actually easy.
What to prepare

First, prepare the manuscript you want to read.
The manuscript can be a PowerPoint notebook, or you can prepare it in another software.
Next, copy and paste the manuscript to Ondoku.
If you create audio files for each slide to some extent, the subsequent work will be easier .
Finally, insert the audio file into the slide.
