    Software for online presentations

    Does anyone know of, or can recommend, an application that would allow me to create a narrated PowerPoint, that I could then post on our company website? I'm thinking of something like WebEx (with its record feature) but without the live online interaction. In other words, I would be showing a PowerPoint and adding voice, and possibly video, to record so that others can view/listen on-demand by clicking on a link on our website. I guess like Real Producer, but with PowerPoint instead of video being the focus. I know there must be something like this out there... <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    I think there are some products that will convert PowerPoint to Flash that would let you do this, but it might be more complexity than you need.

    Yeah...I'd love to find something as simple as WebEx where you load a PPT, hit record, then talk about the slides. Not great online/distance learning, but I want to keep it simple.

    Have you looked at MS Producer? Not sure if it is easy or not. It is a free Powerpoint add-on that MS claims will help you do what you wish.

    It sounds promising, but we're still using PPT 2000 (not 2002). I'll hold on to this, in case we end up upgrading to the new PowerPoint. Thanks.

    Re: Software for online presentations

    Right now I'm starting to use RoboDemo for online tutorials... it's a little more powerful than what you're looking for (and may be too expensive too...) but you can import slides from PPT and then do the sound track... you don't have to add any interactivity or additional dialog boxes. It's very easy to learn and imports PPT like a dream.
    Hope this sets you on the right path...
    have fun

    Interesting... Yeah, this might be an option. I'll try the trial and see. If it works, the price is fair. Thanks! <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
