I am trying to do a voiceover on a PowerPoint presentation. I did not have any apparent problems recording, saving or exporting the audio, nor did I have any apparent problem importing it to my PowerPoint deck. The voiceover recording process in Ppt. seemed to go smoothly but when I watched the (.wav) movie file there were A LOT of skips, repetitions, and omissions in the audio. What am I doing wrong?
Does you exported file play OK in your usual media player?
Yes. I exported an MP3 copy and a wav copy and they both play fine in my media player. I am a beginner user with Audacity so any help would really be appreciated!
You may be a beginner with Audacity, but you appear to have managed that part perfectly.
Audio skipping in Powerpoint is a common problem (unrelated to Audacity). I don’t use Powerpoint myself, but this tip about “optimizing audio” looks like a good tip: How to Fix Audio Playback Issues in PowerPoint Presentations
Thanks Steve, I will check it out.
Optimizing the media file in PowerPoint worked, thanks again Steve!
