http://brackmansi.com can help with audio visual systems if you are in Raleigh NC.
This is where most Powerpoint users miss the point. There are two places to put content in a ppt - on the screen and in the notes. The screen is the visual aid that you will use to help get your message across. The notes are where you put the narrative. That means the file can be sent around electronically without having to have the presenter there. The easiest way is to print the notes pages to a pdf.
Too many people try to put the notes in the screen part of Ppt - leading to death by bullet point.
What you've done with the audio is fine, and works, but means that you've had to do the presentation twice and go through the not-inconsiderable hassle of creating an audio track - beyond a lot of the people I know that do presentations.
We just need to teach people how to use the tools properly...
@berthelemy Hi @berthelemy Thanks for the response to this post and of course I agree with your observations about most people not having the time or ability to create additional audio to include with the PPT slides and that if they used the tools properly that they wouldn't need to 'make' the time or adopt the skillset.
My main focus during my session was to stress that wherever you put the technical, detailed content be it online, verbally, as a paper handout - don't put it on the slides!!!!!
I did however, want to show people another alternative (Slidecasts in Slideshare) should they wish to try it out.
I'm looking forward to catching up over that beer at Learning Live :-)
