Add Narration to Presentation

Postby brandon.koontz » Mon Jun 13, 2011 7:17 pm

To whomever can help me out,

I have been trying for hours now, and just simply cannot figure out how to add a soundclip or narration to my slides in my presentation. I don't know if it's my PC, or the OS it's running, or if maybe the OpenOffice 3.3 software itself??? Can someone or anyone please help me with this?!

Thanks a bunch,

Have you prepared your soundbites? If they are prepared and recorded, they can be inserted to each slide by Impress / Insert / Movie and Sound. The actual format may present a problem; usually if a media clip can be played in Windows Media Player outside of Impress, then it will play within Impress.

I'm interested as well, but I think that's a "missing feature"... you would have to manually register->insert in the slide(s)->adjust the timing of the slide(s) with in MS Office you can do it from the same interface and slide timing and narration times are automatically synchronised.. it's years I wait for this feature in OOO (no, unfortunatly I don't have the competences to code it myself.. :-((( )
