proceed to Step 9. If you selected another slide in your
presentation in Step 2, a second, smaller Record Narration
alert box appears. Click either Current Slide or First Slide
to indicate where you want your narration to begin.
Your presentation now appears in Slide Show view.
Speak your narration into the microphone. When you’re
done with the narration for that slide, click the slide to
advance to the next slide. Continue your narration for the
next slide. Repeat these steps for your entire presentation.
You can pause your narration by right-clicking the slide and choosing

If you make a mistake, you can rerecord part of the narration. Go
to the slide you want to rerecord and follow Steps 1 through 7.
When you’re done rerecording the portions you want to change,
press Esc and go to Step 11.
When the black “end of presentation” screen appears,
click it. Your narration is saved.
A message appears, asking you whether you’d also like
to save the slide timings (shown below each slide).
If you click Save, your presentation will appear in Slide
Sorter view with timings displayed under each slide, as
shown in Figure 12-11. If you click Don’t Save, you will
return to your first slide. To preview a narration,
doubleclick the Sound icon.
You can run your slide show with the narration but without your
saved timings. Click the Slide Show tab and in the Set Up group,
click Set Up Slide Show and under Advance Slides, click Manually,
