The first “3 Minute Teaching With Tech Tip” Video Shows how Easy it is to Narrate Over PowerPoint 2010
Have you ever wondered how hard (or easy) it is to add voice narration to PowerPoint Presentations in Office 2010? It's really not very difficult at all!
Our 2012 article, Add Voice Over to PowerPoint Presentations in 5 Easy Steps, is consistently one of the most viewed posts on the site, attracting thousands of readers every month. This deals with PowerPoint 2007 though, and PowerPoint 2010 works differently.
This video shows just how easy it is to tackle this with PowerPoint 2010. The cool thing is that you have 2 choices – adding voice clips to individual slides (which is really easy), or narrating over sets of slides (which isn't very hard, but it is a little more involved).
Regarding the title of the video: I am intending to create a series of “3 Minute Teaching With Tech Tip” videos in the coming months. I hope you like the idea! I know I am much more likely to check out a tech tip if it is short and to the point.

If you do start to dive a little deeper into narrating over PowerPoint 2010 slide decks, here's Microsoft's page on how to do this, which has further explanation of things like setting and using slide timings: Record and add narration and timings to a slide show.
