    Narriated & Blank Presentation (XP)

    I have an application where I need to create visually identical PowerPoint presentation where one has narriation and the other does not. I will need to maintain these so I want to avoid having to keep two versions. Is there a way to create the presentation with narriation and then easily strip it out to create the non-narriated version?

    Hi Ronny

    The simplest way must surely be to turn the volume down when you want to present it with no narration?

    I'd just do a save-as and disable the narration in PowerPoint whenever you make changes. I've recorded PPT with narration and it's a cheap way to do add it to a preso.

    Well, ok you got me [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] Actually you just need to delete the yellow speaker icon on each slide to remove the audio. So I'd still do a save-as with the slide changes and then delete the icons for the audio and rename it to same file _noVoice.ppt.

    That would not work. I want to post them online for my students but I prefer them to come to class to hear what I have to say. Since the volume is not under my control, I could not turn it down. Plus, a 20 MB presentation takes a lot longer to download (with narriation) than does a 1 MB without it.
