Watch the lesson
You can easily use multiple voices in the same video, or even during the same slide.
To set the active narrator, use the voice stage direction in your speaker notes.
In the following slide, we’ll use two voices: Missy, a child voice, and Jennifer, an adult female.
Stage directions affect the reading of the narration text that follows. They must be in a separate paragraph.
Remember to leave at least one blank line above and below them.
(voice: Missy) Do we have any homework for tomorrow? (voice: Jennifer) Yes, check the school web site portal!
Mix different languages
You can also use voices in different languages in the same slide, to create an international conversation.
(voice: Karen) Hi there! (voice: Enrique) ¡Hola! ¿Qué vas a tomar? (voice: Karen) I would like some coffee.
There are many other stage directions you can use to make the conversation more interesting.
Make narration louder or quieter
voice-volume stage direction to choose a louder or quieter voice. Set it to
soft (or back to
This is my normal voice. (voice-volume: loud) I can also shout! (voice-volume: soft) Or I can whisper.
Speed up or slow down narration
voice-speed stage direction to choose a faster or slower voice. Set it to
slow (or back to
This is my normal speed. (voice-speed: slow) I can speak slowly. (voice-speed: fast) Or I can hurry up.
voice-emphasis stage direction to point out important things, or to make something sound less important. Set it to
reduced (or back to
This is how I normally talk. (voice-emphasis: strong) This is very important. (voice-emphasis: reduced) This is kind of irrelevant.
